Following the women’s Final, the men’s final ended as well – on November 22, ATP and WTA rolled out their ratings in a timely manner by the end of the season. Updated and final – there will be no tennis until 2022, except for the Davis Cup, which is held under the auspices of the ITF and does not give rating points.
Medvedev finished season in top 2, Djokovic’s records
The 2021 season turned out to be successful for Russian tennis: Daniil Medvedev won the Grand Slam tournament for the first time, taking revenge from Novak Djokovic for Australia in the US Open final. Medvedev is also entrenched in the top 2 of the world rankings – in March someone other than Djokovic, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray became the second racket for the first time in 16 years.
Russia is the Davis Cup favorite. Medvedev and Rublev vs Djokovic
16 HOURS AGO
The best moments of the best ending. How Medvedev defeated Djokovic
Andrei Rublev finished the season fifth, but the 2020th in his performance was much brighter. Andrey took only one ATP title in PM (compared to last year’s five – this is a decline) and did not improve aspects of the game. But there were some pleasant moments that Rublev can be proud of: the most striking highlight was the victory over Rafael Nadal on clay in Monaco. And, of course, the Olympic mixed gold in a duet with Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova – but rating points are not given for this either.
Rublev overthrew the king of soil and almost burst into tears
Absolutely inimitable breakthrough of Aslan Karatsev from outside the hundred and qualification of the Australian Open in the top 20 and to the semifinals of “TBSh”. If not for the pandemic freeze of the rating, Aslan would have been in the top ten. In the asset Karatsev – two personal titles, one doubles and even a victory over Djokovic. Not somewhere, but in Belgrade in front of the Serbian tribunes.
The best moments of the 3.5-hour cutting of Karacev and Djokovic. Power!
Karen Khachanov almost flew out of the top 30 and finished the season in the status of the fourth racket in Russia. The title of the Parisian “Masters” in 2019 remains the last for Karen. And for the Olympian silver, we repeat, points are not required.
And also in men’s tennis:
- Novak Djokovic flew for the gold “Helmet”, winning the Australian Open, Roland Garros (took out Rafa in the semifinals) and Wimbledon. But in the Olympic semifinals he dropped out from Alexander Zverev, and at USO he lost the battle for the title to Medvedev and did not even collect the calendar. But he got his second career at RG and finished a record seventh season in first place.
- Roger Federer struggled with injuries, but tried to get in shape in front of his beloved Wimbledon. On the grassy lawns of London, he reached the quarterfinals, where he received an unpleasant “steering wheel” from Hubert Hurkach.
Medvedev trained Khurkach so much that Federer could not cope with him

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova finished the year as the first racket of Russia in the WTA tour. Nastya played in the final of Roland Garros against Barbora Kreichikova, and on hot Tokyo courts in August she won the Olympic mix in collaboration with Andrei Rublev. Daria Kasatkina has dug up to 26th place since the 70s, and in total there are eight Russian tennis players in the women’s hundred – against the men’s four.
The opening of the season was 23-year-old Lyudmila Samsonova, who won the herbal five hundred in Berlin, and then became the joker of the Russian national team in the final of the Billie Jean King Cup. The Russians beat the Swiss – but, as we have already found out, they do not give points for this. But the head of the FTR Shamil Tarpishchev may be pleased.
Also in women’s tennis:
- The TBS titles were again taken by four different tennis players: Naomi Osaka, Barbora Kreichikova, Ashley Barty and Emma Radukanu.
- Belarusian Arina Sobolenko finished the season second after Barty, but did not even reach the final of “Slam”, having taken off in 1/2 Wima and the US Open.
- The legendary Serena Williams never broke Margaret Court’s record with 23 wins at TBSH. The American missed most of the season and finished 41st.
