Novak Djokovic has started his landmark 400th week on top of the ATP Rankings after he sealed the 2023 year-end world No 1 spot at last week’s ATP Finals.

The 36-year-old produced a stunning performance to see off Jannik Sinner 6-3, 6-3 in Sunday’s final in Turin to claim a record seventh year-end championships crown.

The Serbian’s win over Holger Rune in his opening ATP Finals group stage match secured a record-extending eighth ATP year-end No 1 finish, with his idol Pete Sampras in second place on six.

This ensured Djokovic’s sensational record total of weeks spent as world No 1 would reach and surpass the 400-week mark, as he completes his fourth century of weeks on top of the Rankings this week. Roger Federer is second in this category with 310 weeks.

Djokovic’s four victories and triumph at the 2023 ATP Finals earned him 1,300 points to take his season total to 11,245 points from just 12 tournaments this year.

This gives him a healthy season-ending lead over world No 2 Carlos Alcaraz – who he crushed in the semi-finals in Turin – with the Spaniard finishing on 8,855 points.

Medvedev finishes the year in third on 7,600 points after a tour-leading 66 match wins, while Jannik Sinner earned 1,000 points for his run in Turin to end on 6,490 points at a career-high spot of No 4.

Andrey Rublev and Stefanos Tsitsipas occupy the fifth and sixth spots respectively following their winless Turin campaigns, with Alexander Zverev and Rune closing the gap on them.

Hubert Hurkacz, Nicolas Jarry and Ugo Humbert all finished the season at a career-high ranking, while Alex De Minaur and Tommy Paul are just one spot below their best positions. World No 14 Grigor Dimitrov recorded his best year-end finish since ending the 2017 season at No 3.

Ben Shelton ended his first full year on the ATP Tour ranked 17th, two spots below the peak of No 15 he reached in October.
