Novak Djokovic-ATP world ranking

Novak Djokovic caps off a spectacular 2015 season by remaining on top of the ATP world rankings, according to the final list published by the organization on Monday.

The Serb, who also held the top spot at the end of 2011, 2012, and 2014, amassed a whopping 7,500 points ahead of his closest rival, world number two Andy Murray, who over the weekend has led Great Britain to its first Davis Cup title in 79 years.

Switzerland’s Roger Federer also made noise by becoming, at age 34, the oldest player to land in the Top 3 since the ATP Rankings were first established in 1973.

The last and only other time there were five players aged 30 or over in the year-end Top 10 was in 1974.

Meanwhile, in doubles action, Jean-Julien Rojer & Horia Tecau finished as the No. 1 for the first time, halting Bob & Mike Bryan’s six straight years of emerging at top spot. Individually, Marcelo Melo becomes the first Brazilian player to hold the No. 1 Emirates ATP Doubles Ranking. Daniel Nestor ends 2015 at No. 18 and, at 43 years of age, is the oldest in the Top 20.
