Since 2003 there has been no ranking in which neither Nadal, nor Djokovicn nor Federer occupied any position in the Top 3
The Serbian is the most affected, falling to seventh position and without options to play the US Open
The ATP ranking is more electric than ever. After a start to the season surrounded by decisions and measures conditioned by the Covid and the war between Russia and Ukraine, the classification has lurched non-stop.
So much is the movement that has been given a situation not seen since 2003. None of the members of the Big Three appear in the first three positions of the classification. A fact that could be damaged in the coming weeks.
The shocking news that Wimbledon will not give ATP points, by not letting Russian athletes participate, leaves a more dramatic panorama if possible for Djokovic. The Serbian could fall to 8th position in the ranking, and the problem does not end here.
No US Open… for now
Today Djokovic could not compete at the US Open since the United States authorities still request a vaccination certificate against the coronavirus from all foreigners who want to enter the country. A certificate that Djokovic does not have, since he has repeatedly stated his refusal to get the vaccine.
Djokovic’s last precedent in a similar case took place during the Masters 1,000 in Indian Wells, when he was included in the tournament’s seeding list as the first favorite… despite the fact that he was finally unable to attend the tournament due to not being vaccinated .
