Serbian Novak Djokovic, who was absent from the Indian Wells and Miami Masters tournaments, regained first place in the world tennis rankings without playing, taking advantage of the loss of Spaniard Carlos Alcaras in the semi-finals of Miami.
After being crowned in Indian Wells, Alcaras (19 years old) regained the world number one position from Djoko. But the young Spaniard lost his title in Miami, losing in an exciting semi-final match against Italian Yannick Sener, who returned and lost the final against Russian Daniel Medvedev.
This is the 380th week in the rich march of Djokovic (35 years) at the top of the world tennis rankings, which is a record.
“Noli” is 380 points ahead of Alcaras, who lost 640 points, while Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas retained third place, but a thousand points behind Alcaras.
And with his coronation in Miami, Medvedev climbed the rankings and became fourth at the expense of the Norwegian Casper Rudd.
The Russian is considered the star of the beginning of the season, after being crowned in Rotterdam, Doha, Dubai and Miami. At the age of 27, he won his fifth Masters 1000 tournament title and the 19th of his career.
Despite his final loss, Siner climbed the rankings to enter the top ten club and become ninth.
And with his continued absence from the stadiums due to injury, Spanish legend Rafael Nadal fell back and became fourteenth.
