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


Nov 21, 2023

Tennis players Ivan Dodig (38) and Austin Krajicek (33) finished the year as the second and first player in the world in doubles, respectively. Croatian-American combination won five tournaments this year: Rotterdam, Monte Carlo (Masters), Roland Garros, Queen’s and Beijing. However, they fell on the last, final step in Adelaide and Eastbourne. Rohan Bopanna (43), an Indian tennis player who is the oldest tennis player to win the final Masters and the oldest winner of the Masters (Indian Wells, Ebden), will end the year as third in the rankings. Fourth place goes to his partner Matthew Ebden. Other players who ended up in the Top 10 include Horacio Zeballos, Rajeev Ram, Joe Salisbury, Wesley Koolhof, Neal Skupski, Marcel Granollers. Mate Pavić and Nikola Mektic, who ended their collaboration a few months ago, ended up in 32nd place.

In singles competition, Novak Djokovic once again dominated another season by leaving behind Carlos Alcaraz, Danilo Medvjedev, Jannik Sinner and Andrej Rubljov. Borna Coric ended up as the 37th tennis player in the world while Borna Gojo came in at 72nd place. Marin Čilić dropped out of the Top 500 altogether.
