Djokovic Keeps Healthy Lead At Top As Tsitsipas Rejoins Top 10 In Latest ATP Rankings

0

Despite his trophy-less start to 2024, Novak Djokovic maintained his position as the world’s top-ranked player in the latest ATP rankings.

The Serbian improved on his results over the weekend, reaching his second semifinal of the season and his first in Monte Carlo since 2015. Eventually, he was beaten by Casper Ruud.

Djokovic will not defend many points before Roland Garros, so he will most likely keep the top spot at least for another month. He’s already set a new record as the oldest ATP World No. 1 in history, so there is light in what has been a chaotic start to the year.

Jannik Sinner retained second place thanks to Carlos Alcaraz’s withdrawal from the Monte-Carlo Masters because of injury. Alcaraz will not defend his title in Barcelona so the Italian can spend more time in the top two for another week.

Daniil Medvedev remains in fourth place, ahead of Alexander Zverev. The two biggest movers in the Top 10 are the two men who played the Monte Carlo final: Casper Ruud and Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Ruud was back in the Top 10 in recent weeks and rose four spots to sixth place despite a modest performance in the final. As for the three-time Monte Carlo champion Tsitsipas, he soars five places to seventh place.

There is not a big gap in terms of points between Ruud in sixth and Alex de Minaur in 11th, so we could see a lot of movement between the players in that group in the coming weeks.

Holger Rune dips to the 12th spot after a quarterfinal exit in Monaco. Jack Draper fell seven places and out of the Top 40. Sumit Nagal continues his ascent in the rankings. He became the first Indian man to win a match in a clay-court Masters this past week and settled for 80th spot in the latest rankings.

Australia’s Thanasi Kokkinakis captured the Sarasota Challenger at the weekend and rejoined the Top 100. You can check on the movements of all your favorite ATP players by visiting our updated rankings page.
