Novak Djokovic has broken the record for the most time spent at number one in the professional tennis rankings by a man or woman, beginning his 378th week in the ATP’s top spot to surpass Steffi Graf’s 377 leading the WTA.

He already held the men’s mark, eclipsing Roger Federer’s old ATP standard of 310 weeks in March 2021.

“I’m flattered, obviously. Extremely, extremely proud and happy for this achievement,” Djokovic said in a video posted on social media, in which he referred to Graf as “one of the greatest, most-legendary tennis players”.

After Djokovic and Graf on the list of most weeks as number one are Martina Navratilova, with 332, and Serena Williams, with 319, followed by Federer. Computerised rankings began in the 1970s.
