Djokovic back in top 10 after Wimbledon exploits

Djokovic back in top 10 after Wimbledon exploits

Pyeongchang, South Korea: Novak Djokovic's fourth Wimbledon win propelled him back into the top 10 of the latest ATP rankings released Monday.

Djokovic beat Kevin Anderson 6-2, 6-2, 7-6 (7-3) to claim his fourth Wimbledon men's singles crown on Sunday, launching him 11 places to 10th in the rankings, ending an eight months top 10 exile.

South African surprise finalist Anderson, 32, moved up three places to fifth in the rankings.

Serb Djokovic, whose last stay in the top 10 dates back to October 2017, is hoping his 13th grand slam title will mark a turning point after a difficult two years marked by loss of motivation, personal issues and niggling injuries.

Spain's Rafael Nadal remains top of the table and has widened the gap over number two Roger Federer, who was eliminated by Anderson in a marathon  quarter final.
