The Russian Daniil Medvedev returns to occupy the first place in the world of the ATP ranking, this time in front of Alexander Zverev, for the first time in his career at number 2. The German, however, now stopped after the bad ankle accident suffered in Paris, bypasses Novak Djokovic, who is relegated to third place. Medvedev, 26, had already occupied number 1, for two weeks, between the end of February and the beginning of March.
Djokovic, winner of Roland Garros in 2021, was eliminated in the quarters of the 2022 edition by Rafa Nadal, who instead remains fourth in the world, but now only 245 points behind his great rival. It was since October 2018 that Djokovic was not in one of the first two places of the ATP circuit rankings. The Norwegian Casper Ruud, finalist in Paris, reaches his best position in his career in fifth place in the world, overtaking the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas.
A victory at the Stuttgart tournament is not enough for Matteo Berrettini to gain positions in the ranking: he remains stable in tenth place. The victory in Germany, however, allowed the Roman tennis player to leap forward six positions in the ATP Race To Turin. Jannik Sinner loses a position in the Top 20 Atp to the detriment of the Polish Hubert Hurkacz.
The South Tyrolean is now thirteenth. The other Azzurri’s path is also backwards: Lorenzo Musetti (39 / o), Lorenzo Sonego (43 / o) and Fabio Fognini (47 / o).
