The 2012 Australian Open final is now over and Novak Djokovic has claimed his 3rd Melbourne Park title and 5th Grand Slam title overall. However the outcome of the championship match did not directly affect the rankings as Novak Djokovic would have remained the world No. 1 player even with a loss.

With all the results now in here are my calculations regarding who will be ranked in the Top 10 come Monday. These rankings are not official and the ATP will officially update the rankings on Jan. 30th. 

The numbers in brackets are what the player's ranking points will be on Monday, according to my calculations:

  1. Novak Djokovic (13,630)
  2. Rafael Nadal (10,435)
  3. Roger Federer (8010)
  4. Andy Murray (6900)
  5. David Ferrer (4565)
  6. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (4425)
  7. Tomas Berdych (3700)
  8. Mardy Fish (2965)
  9. Janko Tipsarevic (2700)
  10. Juan Martin Del Potro (2630)
  11. Nicolas Almagro (2380)
  12. Gilles Simon (2005)
  13. Gael Monfils
  14. Robin Soderling (1960)
  15. Feliciano Lopez (1900) New Career High Ranking
  16. Richard Gasquet (1855)
  17. John Isner
  18. Alexander Dolgopolov
  19. Andy Roddick (1745)
  20. Kei Nishikori (1680) New Career High Ranking

There will not be a ton of change in the rankings, especially in the Top 10. However, of note Juan Martin del Potro will return to the Top 10 for the first time since coming back from his wrist injury. 

He may soon overtake Tipsarevic and the struggling Mardy Fish as well, two early round casualties at the 2012 Australian Open.
