After his victory at the US Open, Djokovic’s advantage over his pursuers seems enormous. But that’s not true.

The results of the last Grand Slam tournament of the season significantly changed the position of tennis players in the top 10 of the ATP rankings. The new US Open champion, Novak Djokovic, has risen to the top again. But how long will he stay there and who can challenge him now? We’ll see it in our qualifying schedules.

24 “Helmets” – incredible! Djokovic beats Medvedev in US Open final

It was enough for Novak Djokovic to win one match at the US Open to overtake the previous leader of the world ranking, Carlos Alcaraz, which the Serbian did, and he significantly “exceeded” this plan, eventually becoming champion. But the Spaniard could not defend all the points to win in 2022, losing in the semifinals to Daniil Medvedev and immediately falling behind the new leader Djokovic by as many as 3,260 points. At the same time, the Russian himself had the opportunity to overtake Alcaraz and become second, if Daniil himself became the US Open champion, and the Spaniard stumbled no later than in the fourth round. As a result, Medvedev lost in the final and Carlos advanced two more rounds. And now the Russian is 1,255 points behind Alcaraz and 4,515 behind Djokovic.

There were other changes in the top 10. The 2022 finalist, Casper Ruud, having acted unsuccessfully in the new draw, immediately fell from fifth to ninth place. Stefanos Tsitsipas and Andrey Rublev rose two positions each. Also worth noting is the return of the German Alexander Zverev to the top ten.

There are still two more months of play in men’s tennis until the end of the 2023 season. Many more interesting starts are expected and there will be a fight not only for titles, but also for rating points, which means that new changes are possible . Even at the top. Today, leader Novak Djokovic’s position seems unshakable. But this is just an “apparent appearance”.

To begin with, the end of last year was shocking for Novak Djokovic, so he will have to defend the most points – 2850. The Serbian won titles at the ATP-250 in Tel Aviv, ATP-500 in Astana. , and was a finalist in the Paris Masters (600), and in the Final of the ATP Championship in Turin he won five wins in five matches and scored the maximum possible number of points (1500). Alcaraz then, after his victory at the US Open, lost in the first round of the 500 in Astana (0 points), the semifinals in Basel (180), and did not finish the quarterfinals of the Paris Masters due to injury (180 ) and withdrew from the final. Thus, if we subtract the points obtained by Djokovic and Alcaraz during the rest of last season, the Serbian’s advantage will be drastically reduced to 770 points. Until the end of the year, Daniil Medvedev needs to defend 500 points for the title in Vienna, 180 points for the semifinals in Astana and 10 points for the defeat in the first match in Paris against Alex de Minaur. Once these points are deducted, the gap between the Russian and Djokovic will be reduced to 2,355 points, which Daniil is quite capable of winning in the remaining two months of the 2023 season.

Points that will expire for the top 3 representatives until the end of the 2023 season:

Good. There are only three contenders for the tennis crown at the end of the season: Djokovic, Alcaraz and Medvedev. Judging by our readers’ polls, the vast majority of our readers trust that no one will unseat the Serbian from the top.

However, there will still be many points up for grabs before the end of the season. There will be two “Masters”: in Shanghai and Paris (1000 points for the winner), there will be 500 events in Beijing, Tokyo, Vienna and Basel, as well as the final of the ATP Championship, where a maximum of 1500 points can be scored. It should be noted here that Jannik Sinner also has a negligible mathematical probability of becoming the first. But this will happen if he wins all the major tournaments and reaches the ATP-250, and Djokovic ultimately fails.
