ATP Rankings: Dominic Thiem breaks up Big Three dominance while Dan Evans cracks top 30
Novak Djokovic remains No 1 in the ATP Rankings, Rafael Nadal is still behind him, but there is a change at No 3 as Dominic Thiem has replaced Roger Federer.
The Big Three have been occupying the top three in the ATP Rankings since May 2006, but there is a tweak at the top, although neither Federer nor Thiem were in action this weekend.
With Federer out injured following knee surgery, it meant he was unable to defend his 500 points at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.
That leaves the 20-time Grand Slam winner on 6,630 points and with Thiem on 7,045 points, the Austrian reached a career-high of No 3 in the world rankings.
Djokovic leads the way with 10,220 points as he added 500 points after winning in Dubai while Nadal moved to 9,850 points after winning in Acapulco.
The rest of the top 10 remains the same with Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Alexander Zverev, Matteo Berrettini, Gael Monfils and David Goffin keeping their positions.
Grigor Dimitrov was the big mover as he is up three places to return to the top 20 while Dan Evans is the new British No 1 as he is up nine places to No 28 on the back of his run to the semi-final in Dubai with Kyle Edmund down in No 44.
