After tennis star Novak Djokovic triumphed in the Wimbledon final for the seventh time, he slipped further down the world rankings. The TV expert Mats Wilander surprises with his opinion on the loss of points.
Drop in the ATP ranking: Despite the Grand Slam title in Wimbledon, Novak Djokovic falls from third to seventh place in the ATP world rankings. However, former Swedish tennis superstar Mats Wilander doubts that this fact will affect the Serbs much.

Wants to be the best in history: “For Novak Djokovic, I don’t think it makes any difference whether he is number 7 or number 1 in the world. For him, it’s all about Wimbledon titles and Grand Slam titles and being the best in history,” Wilander told Eurosport.
Points are not awarded: The British government and the organizers banned Russian and Belarusian professionals this year because of Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine. As a countermeasure, the ATP and WTA withdrew the points from the Grand Slam tournament. Djokovic was last as low as today in August 2018.
