LIVE RANKINGS. Novak Djokovic becomes number 3 if Alcaraz wins the French Open – Tennis Tonic

In the dynamic world of professional tennis, the live ATP rankings are an ever-changing landscape that reflects the latest achievements of the players. As we approach the climax of the French Open, one of the most prestigious Grand Slam tournaments, fans and analysts are eagerly anticipating the possible outcomes.

Currently, Novak Djokovic, a name synonymous with excellence in tennis, occupies the top spot in the rankings. However, he will be overtaken by Jannik Sinner in the ATP rankings.

Hot on his heels is young Spanish sensation Carlos Alcaraz, positioned at number three but with a significant chance of breaking the status quo. If Alcaraz emerges victorious at the French Open, the points he gains would catapult him past Djokovic, causing a ripple effect down the rankings.

Here’s a simplified view of the situation: Djokovic, as defending champion, entered the tournament with a hefty sum of points to defend (2000). Unfortunately, his journey ended earlier than expected, resulting in a loss of points. On the other hand, Alcaraz, who had fewer points to defend compared to last year’s semi-final (720), has made a deep run in the tournament. Each victory brings him closer to the coveted title and a significant increase in ranking points.

The French Open is known for its generous points award, with the winner receiving a total of 2,000 points. This massive injection of points is enough to propel any player within striking distance of the top into the upper reaches of the rankings. For Alcaraz, winning the French Open would not only be a personal milestone, but also a strategic leap forward compared to Djokovic in the rankings (8580 points vs. 8360 points)

Should Alcaraz lift the trophy on the clay courts of Roland Garros, he would secure enough points to surpass Djokovic and relegate the Serbian star to third position.
