Big drop for Tunisian Anas and Djokovic in world tennis rankings

Despite winning the Wimbledon Tennis Championships on Sunday, Novak Djokovic has lost four places in the world rankings published on Monday, with Anas Jaber, who finished second in women’s tennis, dropping to fifth place.

The points of the ancient English championship were not counted in the new classification by the decision of the Association of Professionals and Professional Tennis, in response to Wimbledon’s ban on the participation of Russian players and players in the tournament, in the wake of Russian military operations in Ukraine.
