And Sobolenko has excellent chances of removing Swiatek from the tennis throne.

The last Grand Slam tournament of the season, the US Open, should provide fans with intense battles. The fight in New York will go not only for the prestigious title and solid prize money, but also for the title of the first racket in the world for both men and women.

Medvedev has already been ruled out of the US Open. But he must challenge the new Big Two.

The US Open kicks off on Monday, August 28, and traditionally, world tennis leaders skip the week before such a major competition and devote it to training and preparing for the tournament. This means that there will be no change to the rating from the last version on August 21. Therefore, it is already possible to estimate the alignment of the results of the US Open.

ATP Ranking 52 weeks to August 21, 2023:

1. Carlos Alcaras (Spain) – 9815 points 2. Novak Djokovic (Serbia) – 9795 3. Daniil Medvedev (Russia) – 6260 4 (+1). Holger Rune (Denmark) – 4790 5 (+2). Kasper Ruud (Norway) – 4715 6. Yannick Sinner (Italy) – 4645 7 (-1). Stefanos Tsitsipas (Greece) – 4580 8. Andrey Rublev (Russia) – 4515 9. Taylor Fritz (USA) – 3605 10. Francis Tiafoe (USA) – 3050 11. Karen Khachanov (Russia) – 2845.

Holger Rune at the last moment jumped to fourth in the 52-week ATP rankings, which means that with such a number of seeds he will avoid meeting the top three until at least the semi-finals. The Dane, along with Kasper Ruud, Yannick Sinner, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Andrey Rublev, who sit fifth through eighth, are so close that his group shakeup will likely continue after the US Open. And yet, the main attention is now focused on the top three. Keep in mind that in the leading group after the last Slam of the season, there may also be significant changes.

It’s worth remembering that last year Carlos Alcaraz won his first Slam in New York, which means he now needs to defend up to 2,000 rating points. But Novak Djokovic was later deprived of the opportunity to come to the United States due to his position on vaccination against the coronavirus. Therefore, now the Serb does not need to defend anything, and every rating point earned will go in his favor. As for Daniil Medvedev, in 2022 he attempted to defend the title won a season earlier, but sensationally retired in the fourth round, losing to Australian Nick Kyrgios. And now the Russian needs to defend those 180 points. And if he moves further up the grid, he too will get a significant raise.

It is easy to see that it is enough for Djokovic to win in the first round to pass over Alcaraz and once again become the first racket in the world. But the Spaniard may also lose the second position if Medvedev wins the title, and Carlos himself retires by the fourth round at the latest (see table for details). So only a miracle will help the young Spaniard to stay at the top of the world ranking at the end of the US Open.

Possible points that the representatives of the top 3 can add in the US Open – 2023:

In women, an exciting fight for first place also awaits us. There are now 1,209 points difference between Iga Swiatek and Arina Sobolenko, who runs second: 9,955 to 8,746. At the US Open last year, the Belarusian woman dropped out of the race in the semifinals, losing only to Swiatek, who ultimately she became champion. . After subtracting the points from last year (780 for Arina and 2000 for Iga), the Belarusian tennis player will even come out ahead by 11 points: she will have 7966, and the polka will have 7955. And this means that the first place will go to the one who Go through at least one circle. In case of equality of indicators (let’s say a simultaneous withdrawal in the semifinals, as happened recently in the “thousand” in Cincinnati), Sobolenko will become the first racket in the world.
