Novak Djokovic has been the No.1 player in tennis for over 200 weeks, and he’s never been more deserving of his ranking than after the 2016 French Open. The sport’s top performer created even more separation between himself and the rest of tennis' top names by winning at Roland Garros, claiming his fifth Grand Slam title in six tries.

Djokovic is atop the ATP rankings with nearly twice as many points as the No.2 player. Andy Murray remains second after falling to Djokovic in the finals.

Djokovic and Murray have been the clear No.1 and No.2 players in tennis in 2016. Djokovic has defeated Murray in the finals of both Grand Slams this year. Djokovic has six wins this year and dropped just two sets total in the French Open, though Murray did defeat him in the finals in Rome last month.

The top three remains unchanged from before the start of the French Open. Roger Federer held his spot at No.3 after withdrawing from the tournament with a back injury. He’s back in action and expected to be ready for Wimbledon at the end of the month.

Rafael Nadal and Stan Wawrinka swapped spots in the rankings as the King of Clay surpassed last year’s French Open winner. Wawrinka had an admirable showing, falling to Murray in the semifinals, but he dropped to No.5 because the rankings penalize a player for performing worse than they did at the same tournament in the previous year. Nadal withdrew from the French Open before his third-round match against Marcel Granollers because of a wrist injury.

Dominic Thiem made the biggest leap of any player in the top 10. He made his way from No.15 to No.8, following his best ever performance at a Grand Slam. Prior to the 2016 French Open, Thiem had never advanced beyond the third round in one of tennis’ Big Four tournaments. He made it all the way to the semifinals at Roland Garros, losing in straight sets to Djokovic after he upset David Goffin in the quarterfinals.

Richard Gasquet also finds himself in the top 10 after the French Open. He had been ranked No.12, but he moved up two spots after winning four matches at Roland Garros and losing to Murray in the quarterfinals.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Marin Cilic are no longer in the top 10 because of their performances at the French Open. Neither player made it beyond the third round.
