ATP ranking: Medvedev continues his harvest, Van Assche at the gates of the top 100

Unbeatable? Or almost … Danil Medvedev put an end to the crazy series of Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals of Dubai on Friday March 3 who had not lost since his 15 games played in 2023. He became one of the few people to have beaten the Serb at least five times in his career. The Russian then won in the final against Rublev to lift his 3rd title in 3 weeks. In Indian Wells which starts on March 8, it will be difficult to beat the new 6th in the world who now has 14 wins in a row.

In the top 10, Holger Rune moved up to 8th at the expense of Rafael Nadal who will go down again (9th). Alexander Zverev is gradually regaining his level. Thanks to his convincing semi-final in Dubai, the German climbed to 14th place in the world. Alex de Minaur and Tommy Paul both broke into the top 20, rising 4 places each. The Chilean Nicolas Jarry is one of the best progressions in this ATP ranking with 35 places gained after his title in Santiago.

Among the French also there is positive with Ugo Humbert who is now 77th after his defeat at the challenger of Pau (previously 89th). A failure that benefited Luca Van Assche who was stronger in this tournament and won ahead of his compatriot. The young player grabbed 39 places (110th) and positioned himself just ahead of his friend (111th) Arthur Fils.

What are the differences between the ATP ranking and the Race ranking?

Unlike the “classic” ATP ranking, which is updated every week taking into account the points earned over the previous 52 weeks, the ATP Race ranking only takes into account the points earned during the current season and gradually accumulates the ten -eight best results.

How is the ATP ranking calculated?

The ATP ranking consists of awarding points based on the performance of each player during major competitions. In total, 18 competitions are taken into account and the points accumulated are valid for 52 weeks. Thus, for example, the winner of a grand slam garners 2000 points, the runner-up 1200 points, the semi-finalist 720 points and so on. For each major tournament the points are not the same, because at the masters 1000 the victory awards 1000 points, the final 600 points, and the semi-final 360.

The leaderboard is updated weekly and the points are valid for one year, but instead of being added up, they are compared. In other words, the performance of the player on a competition of the current year is compared to that of the same competition the past year. The points obtained are added to his total to obtain a new total for the week, for a new ranking that comes out every Monday.
