The tale of Novak Djokovic’s reign at the top of the world ATP rankings continues in the most recent edition.
Just one player in the Top 10 was competing this past week, Holger Rune, at the Montpellier Open, where an injury halted his season in the semifinals. It implies that no new players joined the elite group of the ATP.
By agreeing to participate in Indian Wells, Djokovic, meantime, maintained his 600-point lead over Carlos Alcaraz and completed his 411th week at the top of the rankings. This significantly increased the Serbians’ chances of holding the top spot until at least the French Open.
With the exception of Rune, who participated in an ATP event, none of the top players in the ATP added any points during the Davis Cup past weekend. Daniil Medvedev, the Australian Open finalist, is still in third place; Melbourne champion Jannik Sinner is in fourth.
In the coming weeks, Grigor Dimitrov, Casper Ruud, and Alex de Minaur will set out on their Top 10 mission. The Bulgarian may break through that barrier once more as she has committed to compete in this week’s ATP 250 event in Marseille.
The weekend’s biggest winner was Kazakhstan’s Alexander Bublik, who defeated Borna Coric in the final to earn his second Montpellier title.
Bublik jumps six ranks to No. 31, while the Croat reaches a career-high ranking of No. 23. Flavo Cobolli advances to the quarterfinals in Montpellier, maintaining his stellar start to the season. He rises to a career-high position of No. 71.
Rinky Hijikata fell 14 ranks to No. 88 after failing to hold onto his champion’s points from the Burnie Challenger. However, Jurij Rodionov returned to the Top 100, peaking at No. 89 after winning the Koblenz Challenger.
Federico Coria, who placed second at the Piracicaba Challenger, also made his way back into the Top 100 at position 93. You can keep tabs on all of your preferred players by visiting our special rankings page.
