Daniil Medvedev won the Miami Open 2023 to enter the list.

Daniil Medvedev clinched his fifth ATP Masters 1000 title after beating Jannik Sinner in straight sets to win the Miami Open 2023 on April 2 (Sunday). The 7-5, 6-3 victory at the Hard Rock Stadiums was the Russian’s first-ever Miami Masters title. It also makes him only the 16th tennis player to win five or more ATP Masters 1000 titles and only the fifth active player to get to that number.

The ATP Masters 1000 is an annual series of nine tennis tournaments featuring the top-ranked players on the ATP Tour since its inception in 1990. It offers 1000 ranking points and is the second most prestigious event (after the Olympic Games and the Grand Slam) in terms of ranking points. Novak Djokovic currently holds the record for winning the most number of ATP Masters titles (38) and is closely followed by clay king Rafael Nadal (36).
