After a few weeks new change at the top of the ATP Tour ranking. The Serbian champion Novak Djokovic has once again overtaken Carlos Alcaraz in the standings, with the young talent relegated to second position. The Spaniard pays for the points lost compared to last year where he managed to triumph in the Miami Open.
Alcaraz loses the first position in the ranking and the possibility of becoming the youngest ever to win the Sunshine Double, the brace of tournaments in a few days between Indian Wells and Miami. Novak Djokovic is back number one, despite his absence from these tournaments.
The expert champion from Belgrade was first a few weeks ago but was unable to defend his position due to the choice of the American government to ban entry to people without a Covid vaccine. Nole thus reaches the top in the season on clay and can, among other things, increase the record for number of weeks at number one in the world rankings.
Novak Djokovic is world no.1: scenarios for the near future
Novak Djokovic remains stable with points at 7160 points and it should be remembered that the Serbian tennis player does not have the points to win the last Wimbledon and did not participate in the last US Open.
An even more sensational fact that highlights the primacy of the Serbian tennis player. Alcaraz, for his part, loses 640 points in the world rankings and consequently becomes number two, still with an excellent advantage over Stefanos Tsitsipas, who will stop in third position tomorrow.
The great semifinal between Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz therefore also upsets the upper floors of the ATP ranking. Now Nole and Alcaraz will be able to face each other in these weeks, head to head and will be able to fight for the first place in the ranking.
From Monte Carlo to Madrid and Rome with the clay season which will end at the Roland Garros 2023 with the two competing for the favorite palm together obviously with the King of Clay Rafael Nadal. The Majorcan is currently out with an injury but is always one of the favorites when playing on clay.
