Ivan Dodig Secures Second Place in Yearly Doubles Rankings


Nov 21, 2023

The Croatian tennis player Ivan Dodig finished the year as the second-ranked player in doubles, with a total of 6,620 points. Despite being just 510 points behind the first-placed American Austin Krajicek, Dodig had an impressive year that saw him and his partner win five tournaments: Rotterdam, Monte-Carlo (Masters), Roland Garros, Queen’s and Beijing. However, they fell on the final step in Adelaide and Eastbourne.

Indian Rohan Bopanna ended the year as the third-ranked player in doubles, making history as the oldest tennis player to win the final Masters at Indian Wells and Ebden. His partner Matthew Ebden also ended up in fourth place, while Horacio Zeballos, Rajeev Ram, Joe Salisbury, Wesley Koolhof, Neal Skupski and Marcel Granollers also finished in the Top 10. Meanwhile, Mate Pavić and Nikola Mektic ended their collaboration on a sour note as they finished in 32nd or 43rd place.

In the singles competition, Novak Đoković once again dominated another season. The Serbian superstar left behind Carlos Alcaraz, Danilo Medvjedev, Jannik Sinner and Andrej Rubljov to claim his spot atop the rankings. Borna Ćorić was ranked as the 37th best tennis player in the world this year while Borna Gojo came in at number 72. Sadly for Marin Čilić fans, he dropped out of the Top 500 altogether.
