ATP Race to Turin Update after Madrid Open: Novak Djokovic falls out of top 10 ahead of return to action as Andrey Rublev leaps

Monday, 06 May 2024 at 19:30
Jannik Sinner remains the leader of the ATP Race to Turin after the Madrid Open, while Novak Djokovic falls out of the top-10. Madrid Open champion Andrey Rublev advanced to the top-5 and left Carlos Alcaraz further behind, while Felix Auger-Aliassime climbed more than 30 positions.
The second clay Masters 1000 tournament of the year concluded with two surprises in the final at Caja Mágica. Rublev crowned himself champion for the first time at the Madrid Open after overcoming Auger-Aliassime by 4-6, 7-5, 7-5 and regained positions in the Race after four consecutive defeats in the last two months.
On the other hand, the Canadian was outside the top-40 of the Race, but his first Masters 1000 final allowed him to climb to No. 16, just one position ahead of semifinalist Jiri Lehecka, who retired mid-match against the Canadian after only six games played.

The leaders remain on top

The first position in the Race comfortably belongs to Jannik Sinner. The 2024 Australian Open champion withdrew from the Madrid Open in the quarterfinals due to hip problems and maintains a record of 28-2 in 2024. His three titles so far place him in first position with 4,500 points, more than 1,500 points ahead of his closest pursuer, Daniil Medvedev.
The Russian former world No. 1 is in second place with 2,860 points after retiring in the quarterfinals of Madrid against Lehecka. Additionally, the third and fourth places are occupied by Casper Ruud (2,385) and Alexander Zverev (2,095), both eliminated in the round of 16 of the tournament and missed a good opportunity to earn points.

Djokovic out of the top-10 The world No. 1 has had a strange 2024 season in terms of his results, with only three events played and a record of 11-4. The Serbian withdrew from the Madrid Open days before its start and will return this week at the Rome Open. The 24-time Grand Slam champion is currently only in 12th place in the Race with 1,320 points and may not be qualifying for the ATP Finals temporarily.
On the other hand, injuries are beginning to take their toll on Alcaraz in the Race, as he dropped out of the top five and will also not be participating in the Rome Open, while preparing for Roland Garros.
