Novak Djokovic remains anchored at the top of the world tennis hierarchy, according to the ATP ranking released on Monday. “Djoko”, who suffered a heavy defeat against the Italian (6-2, 6-1), has 1,980 points ahead of his runner-up, Rafael Nadal.

Sonego new 32nd worldwide

As the latter should not commit to the Sofia tournament next week, Djokovic is on track to finish 2020 in place of number one for the sixth time in his career, that is to say as much as Pete Sampras (N.1 between 1993 and 1998). Lorenzo Sonego, defeated in the final in Vienna by Russian Andrey Rublev, gained ten places and is now 32nd, his best career ranking. But it is not the most spectacular progression in the Top 100 as the South African Kevin Anderson has jumped 25 places which allows him to climb to 86th place.

In the Top 20, the Russian Daniil Medvedev, new 5th, and the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, now 6th, exchanged places. On the French side, Gaël Monfils, 11th in the world, remains with a large lead the number one tricolor but the 34-year-old player has ended his season because of his poor results since the resumption. Benoît Paire, who has also announced his end of the season, remains stable, at 28th position, while Ugo Humbert has lost two places and comes down to 34th. Adrian Mannarino, beaten in the final of the Astana tournament by the Australian John Millman, climbs three places, to 36th place.
