Sinner n.1 and Alcaraz n.2 in the new ATP ranking

As of today, the ranking will be officially led by an Italian for the first time. Behind him, the Spaniard takes over Djokovic

June 10, 2024 is a date that will remain historic for Italian tennis, with the official announcement of Jannik Sinner’s world number 1, the twenty-ninth in the history of the ATP ranking. Not only that: behind him there is not the entertaining Novak Djokovic but Carlos Alcaraz, who with his victory at Roland Garros took over the Serbian and thus returns to number 2 in the world. So, for the first time, the computer and the ranking also certify that the era of the Sinner-Alcaraz couple has officially begun, and “threatens” to continue for a long time. In fact, there is no doubt that today the best are the two: they won the first two Slams of the year, Jannik and Carlitos are 21 years old, and both have archived, albeit slowly, the era of the Big Three, the last noble representative of that time, Novak Djokovic, overtook and beat in a slam.


Jannik Sinner so n.1 in the world ranking, first Italian in history, with 9,525 points, then Alcaraz on 8,580 points and Djokovic in third place with 8,360 points, after the collapse due to his withdrawal before the quarter-finals of Roland Garros. The Serbian, who underwent knee surgery, also misses Wimbledon, where he defended the final of 2023, and also definitely risks the podium, because Alexander Zverev, finalist in Paris and number 4, now has 6885 points, so very close, because Djokovic still loses 1200 points. In 5th place is Daniil Medvedev (6,485 points) followed by Andrey Rublev (4,710 points), Casper Ruud (4,025), Hurkacz (3,995), Alex de Minaur (3,845) and Grigor Dimitrov (3,775), who Top 10, 35 closes. Points ahead of Stefanos Tsitsipas. In the new ranking, there are eight Italians in the top 100. In addition to the new king of the ranking, Jannik Sinner, there are Lorenzo Musetti (at number 30), Matteo Arnaldi in 34th place (new best ranking), the Luciano Darderi in the 41st, Flavio Cobolli in the 50th, Lorenzo Sonego in the 58th, Luca Nardi in the 73rd and Matteo Berrettini in the 95th. Now everyone on the field, where Italy could also be a big protagonist.
