Tennis great Roger Federer has dropped out from the top 10 in the men's singles rankings for the first time since January 2017. The 20-time Grand Slam champion has slipped from 9th to 11th spot in the charts updated by the ATP on Monday after the Indian Wells Masters 1000 final. Roger Federer has not played on the men's singles circuit since his quarter-final exit at Wimbledon 2021. He pulled from the Tokyo Olympics and the US Open following which he underwent a third surgery on his right knee. Federer also underwent knee surgeries in 2020. Federer missed most of the 2020 season as he did not play in a major tournament after exiting the Australian Open in the semi-finals. In fact, the Swiss great's last Grand Slam title came in 2018 when he won the Australian Open. Federer said during his public appearance at the Laver Cup last month that he was in no rush to get back to the circuit but insisted he is recovering well from the surgery. Novak Djokovic, who lost the US Open final and an opportunity to complete a Calendar Slam, continues to retain the top spot in the men's singles rankings while US Open champion Daniil Medvedev is at the 2nd spot. 20-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal, who missed the US Open, has moved to the 5th spot while Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev complete the top 5. Hubert Hurkacz on Monday became the second man from Poland to break into the top 10 of the men's singles rankings. The Polish star, who won the Miami Open this year, is the first man from his country to accomplish the feat since Wojtek Fibak, who climbed to a career-high World No. 10 on 25 July 1977. Hurkacz began the season at World No. 34. Meanwhile, Cameron Norrie, who scripted history by winning the Indian Wells tittlen Sunday, jumped to a career-high 15th spot in the men's singles rankings.Also Read- Yuvraj Singh Arrested, Released on Bail Over Casteist Remark on Yuzvendra Chahal

Novak Djokovic won a record-extending sixth Paris Masters title by avenging his U.S Open final defeat against Russian Daniil Medvedev with a 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 victory in Sunday's showpiece match. The Serbian, who is guaranteed to secure the year-end world number one spot for a record seventh time, needed time to adjust to break the world number two's sturdy defence but was unstoppable once he found his opening. Djokovic was looking to avoid ending a season without the Masters title for the first time since 2017 and kept his cool at all times to accomplish his mission against the holder. Medvedev was overwhelmed in the third set and bowed out of the contest on the first match point when Djokovic unleashed a superb forehand winner down the line.

"I got mad because it was not nice, and it was done on purpose. Some of the spectators, they were just into the match and you could feel it. You're getting ready for serve, they were like, Allez, Novak, or Allez, Daniil. But you could feel it was like they are just trying not to be in the game, and you wait. "This one was done, when I did the toss already, it was done by a Serbian spectator... I hope he doesn't watch tennis anymore."Also Read- Babar Azam Becomes First Captain To Score 3 Fifties In T20 World Cup
