ATP Ranking – The Big 3 (Federer, Djokovic, Nadal) ejected from the top 2, Medvedev world No. 1 ahead of Zverev, Murray climbs

Medvedev dethrones Djokovic, Ruud emerges in the Top 5

It was inevitable, it’s now official. Novak Djokovic is no longer world number 1 because of the withdrawal of points from the 2021 edition of Roland-Garros which he had won (2000 units thus lost). The Serb thus stops (for the moment at least) at 373 weeks spent on the throne, a record obviously.

He is now only 3rd, nearly 1200 points behind the new leader Daniil Medvedev and 305 behind his runner-up Alexander Zverev, who for the first time in his career reached 2nd place in the world. There is therefore no longer a member of the Big 3 in the first two places, an event since Djokovic, Nadal or Federer have been there constantly since November 10, 2003.

Moreover, Djokovic is no longer ahead of Nadal (4th) by only 245 lengths and the Serb is already condemned to fall further in the coming weeks because of the loss of his points at Wimbledon (whether or not he wins the tournament which does not have it). Another notable change: finalist in Paris, Casper Ruud joins the Top 5, a new high point in his career, to the detriment of Stefanos Tsitsipas (6th) who is offloading the capital of his 2021 final at Roland-Garros.

Federer leaves the Top 50, Murray finds him

For Roger Federer, on the other hand, the slow and inevitable fall continues. The Swiss falls again and finds himself 68th, just behind Hugo Gaston for the anecdote. So here he is outside the Top 50, which hadn’t happened to him since the week of June 5, 2000, just 22 years ago. And since he should only make his return to the circuit in Basel next October, he has not finished falling.

Brilliant finalist on the lawn of Stuttgart after having beaten his first Top 5 since the end of 2016, Andy Murray, he jumped 21 places which allows him to again be part of the top 50 in the world (47th), a first for him. for four years (May 28, 2018). This promises before Wimbledon if his body holds (he was injured in the final). Note also that Nick Kyrgios, semi-finalist on the German turf (beaten by Murray), continues his rise on his side (65th, +13 places) and is now ahead of Federer.

In the Top 20, few changes to report: except that Hubert Hurkacz (12th) and Jannik Sinner (13th) switch places, as well as Denis Shapovalov (15th) and Diego Schwartzman (16th).

Nihsikori leaves the Top 100, Van Rijthoven is approaching it

However, the Swiss “Maestro” is not the only injured person to be disillusioned this week. By losing 180 points in his round of 16 at Roland last year, Kei Nishikori (105th, -21 places) is no longer one of the 100 best players in the world. It hadn’t happened to the Japanese since the week of November 15, 2010, so 11 and a half years ago. Operated on the hip at the start of the year, he has not yet found his way to the courts.

If Nishikori can be brooding, Tim van Rijthoven, him, glimpses the Top 100. By winning the tournament of ‘S-Hertogenbosch to everyone’s surprise – beating in the process Taylor Fritz, Hugo Gaston, FĂ©lix Auger-Aliassime and Daniil Medvedev -, the Dutchman has doubled a hundred of his colleagues (99 to be precise) to now display the registration number 106, the best ranking of his career.
