Battle for the top


Medvedev maybe downed a few vodkas with his WR 1 confirmation before losing 3 & 3 to Nadal in his Acapulco SF.

So his lead will be just 150 points. Both have 500 odd points still retained from 2019 ( none from 2020 ). So good that their ranking points have not been disproportionately effected by these old counters.

Points on 28.02 will be :

1. Medvedev 8615 ( including 8045 in the last 12 months)

2. Djokovic 8465 ( including 7920 in the last 12:months )

With Medvedev losing to Monfils in the L32 in Indian Wells, so only earning 45 pounts to replace 250 points coming off from Marselle last year, he will drop back behind Djokovic.

21.03 22 rankings :
1. Djokovic 8465
2. Medvedev 8410

And with Medvedev currently counting 180 points from Miami last year, as against just 45 for Djokovic, Medvedev will need to reach the Miami SF to reclaim top spot.

If Zverev wins Miami and Medvedev loses QF, Zverev could be number one after Monte Carlo. 3 players could be battling for number one in Monte Carlo

Not official ranking but become so in the near future. On the Tennis Abstract ELO ratings, Carlos Alcaraz has assumed top spot and is rated number one

tennisabstract.com/reports/atp_elo_ratings.html

Certainly he seems to be the form horse at the moment and Im sure will be official number one in the next couple of years.

Rankings watch:

Djokovic needs at least semifinals here in Rome to retain #1 ranking and be top seed at French Open.

If he doesn't, it will be Medvedev, who returns next week in Geneva.

Medvedev would be first non-Big 4 #1 seed at a Slam since 2004 Australian Open (Roddick).

With Djokovic exiting at the QF stage and Zverev painfully exiting in the SF, Medvedev will be clear WR 1 after the French Open 2021 points come off ( assumed to be on 13/06 for the ATP rankings ).

Medvedev will be just as clear WR 1 if and when the Wimbledon 2021 points come off unreplaced. But at least we will be spared the irony of him going to WR 1 because of the Wimbledon points situation as he will already be WR 1 ( although Zverev, if fit, and Nadal, if he wins the French Open, could possibly have overtaken Medvedev at Wimbledon with very good runs if points were on offer ).

Projected points at 13/06 :

1. Medvedev 7800
2. Zverev 7075
3. Djokovic 6770

 Looking at the Race last night against the rankings , they do seem all over the place against each other in a way Ive not seen before. Medvedev is 1st in ranking but 8 in Race. Zverev is 2 in rankings but 5 in race. Djoko is outside the top 8 in the race; and Rafa is 4th in the rankings but top in the race. 

given half the season is now played in terms of slams and masters events, this must reflect that the guys who had great ends to last season really havent come out of the blocks yet this season, and there could be a lot of movement in these rankings as we get through the US Open and towards the end of the season. 

or is something else going on?!

 His non-participation in Australia probably explains Mr Djokovic's position.

 indeed - agreed. And in general he has had a slow start to the year with IW and Miami being an issue for him.

 He's already projected to fall to WR 7 in the rankings once 2021 Wimbledon points come off in addition to 2021 French Open points.

 I hadnt checked the 5 week list but yes, it looks like:

 

1. Medvedev 7280

2. Zverev 6850

3. Nadal 6165

4. Ruud 5050

5. Tsitsipas 4945

6. Alcaraz 4845

7. Djokovic 4770

8. Rublev 3700

9. FAA 3333

10. Sinner 3185

11. Cam 3133

I see  Jack D is live 98, shame he isnt playing this week to try and defend that as there are a lot of players behind him who could pass him again, nonetheless a virtual top 100 is a good start!
