The fight for number one at Roland Garros is a matter of three. Novak Djokovic, current leader, Daniil Medvedev and Alexander Zverev they are the only ones who can leave the French Grand Slam in the first position of the ranking.
Djokovic dominates the world rankings with 8,660 points, but defends the 2,000 he won last year as champion in Paris. Medvedev is like two with 7,980, 680 from the Balkanand added 360 as a quarterfinalist in 2021. While Zverev is third and has 7,200, with 720 to defend, since he was a semifinalist the previous year. Those many that the three won will be subtracted from them on June 13, the date on which the last Roland Garros ended.
The fight for number one at Roland Garros
|No. 1 Novak Djokovic||8,410||8,420||8,455||8,500||8,590||8,770||9,130||9,610||10,410||(-2,000)|
|No. 2 Daniil Medvedev||7,980||7,990||8,025||8,070||8,160||8,340||8,700||9,180||9,980||(-360)|
|No. 3 Alexander Zverev||7,075||7,085||7,120||7,165||7,255||7,435||7,795||8,275||9,075||(-720)|
The one who has it better to continue on the throne on June 6 is Djokovic, who would extend his record for weeks at the top of the table to 373 weeks. He would lose his position, among other cases, if he does not reach the round of 16 and Medvedev, who is not exactly a specialist on clay and has not competed since the Masters 1,000 in Miami because he had a hernia operated on, reach the semi-finals. The Russian would also get the one back if he is a finalist and Novak is not; also if he is champion.
Zverev, remote options
The one who has it the most difficult is Zverev, who needs to lift the trophy and that Djokovic does not pass the quarterfinals and Medvedev the semifinals. The German is more likely to advance to second place, as can be seen in the table. This Saturday he participated in the day of the child of the French major, just like the one in Belgrade.
