Daniil Medvedev is not World No. 1 anymore! The Russian loses his top rank following his defeat against Gael Monfils at the Indian Wells Masters with a score of 4-6, 6-3, 6-1.
The French professional upsets the Russian for the second time in his career to reach the last 16 of the tournament.
With this loss, Novak Djokovic returns back on top of the ATP Rankings next week as the rankings don’t get updated during two-week events like BNP Paribas or Miami Open. The Serb lost his No. 1 ranking following his quarterfinals exit at the Dubai Tennis Championships against Jiri Vesely of the Czech Republic after which, Medvedev was crowned as the new World No. 1 player.
To regain the top spot, the Australian Open 2022 runner-up needs to reach the semifinals of the Miami Open.
