Djokovic, a consolidated status despite everything

The news will probably not change anything in his week after the slap received in the Roland-Garros final on Sunday. But Novak Djokovic has consolidated his position as world number 1 in Paris. By reaching the final, the Serbian did better than last year (semi-finalist) and therefore garnered 480 additional points which allow him to increase his lead to nearly 2000 units (1890 exactly) over Rafael Nadal. If the record for the number of Grand Slam titles has moved away for him, that for the number of weeks at the top of the ATP ranking (310 held by Roger Federer) is more relevant than ever. He could appropriate it in March 2021.

Schwartzman and Rublev in heaven, Monfils unscrews

Stéfanos Tsitsipas also signs his return to the fore. Thanks to the second semi-final of his Grand Slam career, the Greek took 5th place in the world from Daniil Medvedev, uncomfortable on clay and disappeared in the first round in Paris. Also eliminated from entering a tournament that he adores yet, Gaël Monfils is disillusioned and is no longer one of the 10 best players in the world (11th, he loses two places), a status he could boast of for almost a year.

Respectively semi-finalist and quarter-finalist on Parisian ocher, Diego Schwartzman (8th) and Andrey Rublev (10th) replace him in this very closed circle. An important milestone in their respective careers. The Russian, who won 3 titles and 29 matches in 2020, is thus rewarded for his great season. In the top 20, few other changes are to be reported, other than the constant progression of Pablo Carreno Busta, who remains on a semi-final at the US Open and a quarter at Roland and finds the world top 15 for the first time. for more than two years (week of August 27, 2018).

Sinner, a sensational entry into the top 50

After his victory over Jannik Sinner at Roland Garros, some had made the correct observation that Rafael Nadal had qualified for the last four without having met any member of the top 50. We could not say the same thing on Monday. At 19, the promising Italian, who was finally the player closest to taking a set from the Spaniard during the fortnight, is now the youngest member of the top 50 in the world hierarchy. Thanks to his first quarter-final in the Grand Slam, Sinner jumped 29 places to post the number 46. And if he continues to progress at the same pace, it’s a safe bet that this is only the beginning.

Top 100 target for Gaston, Korda and Altmaier

They were not expected and animated the first week of Roland-Garros. After having reached all three of the round of 16 in Paris, Hugo Gaston, Sebastian Korda and Daniel Altmaier are reaping great benefits in the standings. It seemed interesting to us to report this, even if they are not yet among the 100 best players in the world. The young Frenchman is the one who recorded the strongest progression: he gained 82 ranks to become 157th in the ATP. Petr Korda’s son is doing almost as well with a profit of 81 places (132nd now). As for the German, he is the one who comes closest to the top 100: he is 122nd this Monday (64 places gained).

In short: Italy at the party

They are 9 in the top 100 – including 4 Italians – to know this week their best ranking since their professional debut. Diego Schwartzman (8th, +6 places), Andrey Rublev (10th, +2), Lorenzo Sonego (42nd, +4), Jannik Sinner (46th, +29), Stefano Travaglia (70th, +4), Salvatore Caruso (77th +8), Federico Coria (86th, +13), Marcos Giron (90th, +6) and Pedro Martinez (97th, +8) leave Paris with a smile.
