Ivan Dodig Secures Second Place as the Top Doubles Player of the Year

Croatian tennis player Ivan Dodig finished the year as the second-best player in doubles, just 510 points behind American Austin Krajicek. The two players formed a formidable team and won five tournaments together, including the Rotterdam, Monte-Carlo (Masters), Roland Garros, Queen’s and Beijing titles. Despite falling short in the final rounds of the Adelaide and Eastbourne tournaments, they still managed to end the year in the Top 10.

In contrast, Indian Rohan Bopanna will end the year as the third-best player in doubles. At 43 years old, he is the oldest tennis player to win a Masters title and holds several other records for his age group. His partner Matthew Ebden also made it into the Top 10 for another year. Other notable players who ended up in the Top 10 include Horacio Zeballos, Rajeev Ram, Joe Salisbury, Wesley Koolhof, Neal Skupski and Marcel Granollers.

On a different note, Mate Pavić and Nikola Mektic ended their collaboration on a sour note by placing 32nd or 43rd in doubles rankings. In terms of singles competition, Novak Djoković once again dominated another season with his impressive performance. Carlos Alcaraz was not far behind him, followed closely by Danilo Medvjedev and Jannik Sinner. However, Borna Coric fell out of contention for a spot in the Top 500 after a relatively poor season compared to his past performances.
