Djokovic leads the men’s world rankings, but is only 200 points ahead of Alcaraz

The distance between the world number one Novak Djokovic and the second Carlos Alcaraz in the world rankings of men’s tennis players decreased to only 200 points.

The Spanish US Open champion returned two weeks ago after several months of forced rest and triumphed in Buenos Aires, before reaching the final in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday.

The Serbian classic has been resting since winning the Australian Open and could continue to rack up points in Dubai this week, while Alcaraz will be interested in the tournament in Acapulco. The fact that the 19-year-old Spaniard picked up a thigh injury in Brazil could “have a say” in the intercontinental race, and it remains uncertain whether he will travel to Mexico.

Leader Djokovic begins his 378th week at the top of the ATP rankings, overtaking legendary Steffi Graf for the all-time world number one. Among the Hungarians, Marton Fukusovic, who said bye in the Dubai qualifiers, dropped one place to 79th, while Fabian Marozán finished in 161st and Zsombor Perros in 177th.

In the women’s category, Iga Swiatek, who lost the final in Dubai, lost her lead from 4,800 to 4,485 points. The three-time Polish Grand Slam champion still has a street lead over Belarusian Australian Open winner Aryna Zapalenka, while Czech Barbora Krejkova, who beat her on Saturday, moved up 14 places to 16th.

The best Hungarian, Anna Bondar, who competed in Monterrey this week, remains 76th, followed by Dalma Galfi, who competed in Austin, in 83rd, and Ovardi Bana, who suffered a serious ankle injury in Mexico, improved two places to 89th.
