ATP ranking: Alcaraz in the Top 10 before his 19th birthday: the first after Nadal … in 2005

Always first, Alcaraz is already in the elite

This is undoubtedly the event of the week in the world rankings. At just over 18 years and 11 months, Carlos Alcaraz made a resounding entry into the Top 10 on Monday in the wake of his third title (already) in 2022 in Barcelona. Here he is even 9th, with over 200 points ahead of Félix Auger-Aliassime who completes this closed club from which Cameron Norrie leaves (11th). For 17 years to date and Rafael Nadal’s breakthrough (18 years and 10 months), we hadn’t seen it. And given his current dynamic, we can imagine that his ascent has just begun, Andrey Rublev, however winner in Belgrade and also triple crowned this season, ahead of him only by 198 points.

Inspired, Gasquet starts off well


There is no other change to report in the Top 10, aside from the observation that Novak Djokovic, finalist in front of his audience in Serbia, consolidate his throne a little. His dolphin Daniil Medvedev, still injured and whose return date is not yet known, now shows 320 units of disbursement compared to the number 1 in the world. It should also be noted that Alexander Zverev, 3rd, gets some air with respect to Rafael Nadal who got rid of the 500 points of his coronation in 2021 in Catalonia.

Fognini recovers, Thiem falls

Finalist in Barcelona, ​​Pablo Carreño Busta (18th) also earns a place at the expense of compatriot Roberto Bautista Agut (19th), but it is the status quo elsewhere in the Top 20. To find traces of another significant development, it is therefore necessary look over. Therefore, Fabio Fognini’s progress should be noted. Dropped to a level he hadn’t known for ten years after Monte-Carlo, the Italian recovered thanks to the semi-final in Belgrade: he doubled 12 of his colleagues to find the Top 50.

For Dominic Thiem, however, this week is difficult to face. Winner in Barcelona in 2019, he had so far kept half of the points for this performance thanks to the gradual thawing of the ranking. The Austrian gives up 250 points and 39 places this Monday: his status as a member of the Top 100 is hanging by a thread (93rd). He hasn’t ranked so badly in more than eight years (he was 101st the week of March 3, 2014) and still has hundreds of points to defend this season on clay. Unless there is a clear return to form, he may then still slip.

Ups and downs

  • There are 12 who know their best placement this week in the Top 100: Carlos Alcaraz (9th, +2 places), Botic van de Zandschulp (40th, +1), Pedro Martinez (42th, +1), Alex Molcan ( 46 °, +1), Francisco Cerundolo (47 °, +1), Sebastian Baez (58 °, +1), Emil Ruusuvuori (62 °, +11), Oscar Otte (63 °, +7), Daniel Altmaier ( 66 °, +1), Holger Rune (70 °, +2), Jiri Lehecka (88 °, +5) and Carlos Tabernr (92 °, +2).
  • For others, however, it is soup of grimaces. David Goffin (55th, -6 places), Kei Nishikori (64th, -8), Jan-Lennard Struff (69th, -6), Hugo Gaston (72th, -8) and Dominic Thiem (93, – 39) lose a lot of ground.
