He earned this distinction after winning five tournament victories in 2023, including a Grand Slam title at the French Open at Roland Garros. His partner Ivan Dodig was second in the world.
Together, they had an impressive season with a 47-19 doubles record and were ranked No. 1 for 13 weeks, including 10 consecutive weeks at the end of the season. This marks Krajicek’s seventh consecutive year as a top-ranked player on the ATP tour.

Overall, Krajicek’s impressive performance throughout the season solidifies his status as one of the top players in men’s doubles tennis today.
