Novak Djokovic is set to lose the ATP throne as ATP reduces points to zero at Wimbledon 2022.

For the first time since the introduction of the ATP rankings in August 1973, the next Wimbledon will not award ATP points! Organizers of the most prestigious Major confirmed that Russian and Belarusian players could not take part in this year’s event at the All England Club.

The ATP Tour opposed the decision from the start and announced the big news on Friday. Thus, players will fight for the trophy and prize of Wimbledon without the possibility of adding notable points to their charts.

Thus, defending champion Novak Djokovic will lose 2000 points compared to last season, and someone will replace him on the ATP throne on July 11, even if the Serb defends his two titles in Paris and London!

Queen’s ATP 500 event and Eastbourne ATP 250 event will retain ATP points to confuse matters even more.
In last year’s Wimbledon final, Novak won the All England Club’s sixth trophy with a 6-7, 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 victory over Matteo Berrettini.

It was Novak’s 20th major crown, putting him on a par with Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer for the first time during their rivalry. Novak was broken twice when he was already in the lead.

He stole 40% of his comeback points and converted them into six breaks from 15 chances. Djokovic had 31 victors and 21 unforced errors and did better when needed to clinch his sixth Wimbledon crown and third consecutive title.

Berrettini defended a set point 2-5 in the opening set, brought home the break and won the set in the tie-break for a massive boost.

Players will not get points at Wimbledon this year.

Djokovic lost another 5-2 advantage in the second set and wrapped it up in the tenth game to level the total.

Both players scored 28 points in the third set and Novak won the most important points. He took a break in game three and served well to win 6-4 and get closer to the finish line.

The Italian double erred 3–3 in the fourth set, and could not return. Back at 5-3, Novak converted a third match point to seal the deal and celebrated his 20th major title at the age of 34.

“The ability for players of any nationality to enter tournaments on the basis of their merit and without discrimination is fundamental to our circuit. Wimbledon’s decision to ban Russian and Belarusian players from competing in the UK this summer That undermines the principle and integrity of the ATP ranking system.

It is also inconsistent with our ranking agreement. In the absence of a change in circumstances, it is with great regret and reluctance that we see no other option but to remove points from the Wimbledon ATP Rankings for 2022,” the ATP said.
