Novak Djokovic Extends Reign at Top of ATP Rankings Ahead of Roland Garros Opener

Novak Djokovic begins this Monday his 427th week at the top of the ATP ranking with the most advantage over Jannik Sinner before both make their debut at Roland Garros.

Djokovic increases his advantage after adding 100 points last week in the Geneva tournament, where he lost in the semifinals against the Czech Tomas Machac, to stand with 9,960 points compared to the 8,770 of Jannik Sinner, second place.

However, if we look at the virtual ranking, Sinner is provisionally ranked number one in the world after deducting the points added at Roland Garros last year, since Sinner loses 45 points after losing in the second round while Djokovic gives up the 2,000 points as champion. In this way, Sinner appears as the virtual leader of the ranking with 8,735 points while Djokovic has 7,970. It should be remembered that Djokovic must reach at least the semifinals of the tournament if he wants to have a chance of defending number one.

Completing the ranking podium is the Spanish Carlos Alcaraz, third with 7,300 points, who is 995 points ahead of Alexander Zverev, fourth with 6,305, and 1,005 points ahead of Daniil Medvedev, fifth with 6,295 points. Andrey Rublev (sixth with 4,700), Casper Ruud (seventh with 4,425), Hubert Hurkacz (eighth with 3,885), Stefanos Tsitsipas (ninth with 3,700) and Grigor Dimitrov (tenth with 3,555) complete the Top-10 ranking before Roland Garros .

For his part, Rafa Nadal adds a position this week in the ranking and appears in 275th place in the classification with 205 points, a figure that the Spaniard hopes to increase at Roland Garros, although to do so he will have to face a difficult commitment in his debut against the German.
