On September 22, 1997, Swiss Roger Federer, who had just turned 16, debuted at 803rd place in the ATP world rankings for the first time. He later drove it for 310 weeks, a record that Novak Djokovic surpassed only last year.

Federer missed the current standings for the first time in nearly 25 years. The last remaining points in the 41-year-old Basler’s reckoning were those 600 from the 2019 Wimbledon final. That was more than 360 points he earned in last year’s quarter-final and lifted him to 97th place last week. At Wimbledon 2022, these points also fell out of the system. After knee surgeries, Federer plans to return to the Laver Cup in September and a month later at Swiss Indoors in Basel.

Djokovic lags behind – Medvedev still tops

The big winner of Wimbledon is also the biggest loser in the world rankings. As ATP and WTA points were not awarded due to the exclusion of Russian and Belarusian players, Djokovic dropped from third to seventh place.

The benefactor, of all people, is the Russian Daniil Medvedev, who is still on top. Nick Kyrgios, Djokovic’s last opponent, also lost 5 places (from 40 to 45). The only Swiss in the top 100 is Henri Laaksonen with number 96.

Golubic . passed

One of the biggest losers on the WTA Tour is Viktorija Golubic. The Zurich native, who surprisingly reached the quarter-finals at Wimbledon in 2021, slipped from 58th to 100th. Belinda Bencic is still the best Swiss, moving up 3 places to 13th. Jill Tishman is followed by 21st.

Simona Waltert jumped forward (186 to 154) thanks to her ITF Championship win in Amersfoort (NED). As with men, successful Wimbledon players do not benefit. The sensational winner Jelena Rybakina remained at 23rd, and her latest opponent, Anas Jaber, dropped from 2nd to 5th.
