OnCourt Advantage is writing today for fellow Official Australian Open FAN-bassador Grand Slam Gal. You can read my explanation of how the men’s ATP Tour world rankings work here -> ATP Men’s Tennis Rankings Explained.
The ATP ranking system is really quite complex with a large number of variables that can make the rankings system hard to understand or follow. However, there are certainly some major critical factors that once understood will give you a strong grasp of how the rankings are calculated.

The Australian Open Men’s defending singles champion Novak DJOKOVIC is pictured above in the forward swing phase for his best stroke, his double-handed backhand drive at the 2011 US Open. The 1.88m Djokovic defeated David Ferrer in the 2012 Australian Open quarter finals 6-4, 7-6 (7-4), 6-1 in 2 hours and 44 minutes. Djokovic became the 25th ATP World No.1 since computerised rankings were introduced in August 1973 the day after winning his first Wimbledon title (4 July 2011).
The 24-year-old Serbian set up a rematch of the 2011 Australian Open final against Andy Murray in the semi finals on Friday 27 January at 7:30pm Melbourne time. Djokovic is going for his third Australian Open Singles title after winning in 2008 and in 2011. Djokovic won three of the four Grand Slam singles titles in 2011 in one of the best seasons by any player in the Open-era of tennis.
