Medvedev to become new ATP World No.1 displacing Djokovic, first non member of Big 4 since 2004

Novak Djokovic's defeat to Jiri Vesely on Thursday evening has huge repercussions for the current World Number One with Daniil Medvedev finally set to take over at the top of the ATP Rankings.

A likely displacement which has been in the offing for a while, it will now happen with Medvedev taking over come what may next week after his stellar rise up to the top of the game.

The US Open champion will likely build a lead over Djokovic also with the uncertainty surrounding the Serbian's future tournaments after Dubai due to his vaccination status and different entry requirements to follow.

It also means that Medvedev will be the first player outside the big four (Djokovic, Federer, Nadal and Murray) to become World Number One since Andy Roddick in February 2004 which is 6958 days ago. Incredible statistic.
