In Pictures: Andrea Gaudenzi presents Jannik Sinner the new World No. 1 trophy

Jannik Sinner is now officially the new World No.1 after the ATP rankings were updated. He becomes the first ever Italian man to receive this title. After the French Open, he returned to his residence in Monte Carlo, Monaco, where he received a trophy today to celebrate his achievement. 

It is a customary practice at the ATP to present every new World No.1 with a trophy in recognition of the accomplishment. This was not seen much over the last three decades as the big three dominated that period, battling for the top position amongst themselves. Now that they have slowed down, tennis fans have already seen three new World No. 1s in the last two years – Daniil Medvedev, Carlos Alcaraz, and now, Jannik Sinner.

The Chairman of the ATP Tour, Andrea Gaudenzi, was present to hand the award to Sinner at the Monte Carlo Country Club. The large crystalline trophy with the number ‘1’ etched into it is a welcome addition to Sinner’s growing collection of trophies.
