On top of the world: Novak Djokovic. (Photo: AFP/CHRISTOPHE ARCHAMBAULT) The Serb is back on the top of the pile for the first time in two years, at the end of a roller-coaster season for the 14-time major winner. Djokovic, 31, underwent elbow surgery in January and slipped to 22nd in the world after a depressing quarter-final exit at Roland Garros in June, which left him briefly threatening to skip Wimbledon.

BELGIUM Wins over Panama and Tunisia were backed up by a victory over England and even if the latter match was played between two second-string line-ups, Belgium have hardly put a foot wrong. Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard are both firing and, after being rested against England, fresh. This team can go far. 3. URUGUAY Also through with maximum … [Read more...] about How the 16 teams rank ahead of the World Cup’s knockout stages
