Carlos Alcaraz and Rafael Nadal finish the year first and second in the ATP rankings, making Spain the first country to have the top two in the final standings.
Three of the four Grand Slam titles were won by the Spanish duo. Alcaraz, a teenager, won the US Open, while Nadal won the Australian and French Opens.
Nadal will enter 2023 looking to add to his record 22 Grand Slam titles, but he will be closely followed by Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic, who is only one behind his great rival.
The 35-year-old Serbian finished the year fifth in the rankings but with a bang, defeating Norway’s Casper Ruud to win his sixth ATP Finals title.
Ruud finishes the year third, displacing Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, after a highly successful, albeit frustrating, season that saw him reach the French and US Open finals.
