The race for World No.1 could reach its climax following the conclusion of the 2023 Roland Garros tournament, as four tennis stars are in contention for the prestigious position.
Although Carlos Alcaraz currently sits as the World No.1, the Spaniard will be engaged in a four-way battle with Daniil Medvedev, Novak Djokovic and Stefanos Tsitsipas to see who emerges as the top dog over the next two weeks.
Below are each players current standing and what he has to do to achieve World No.1 ranking.
Carlos Alcaraz: The current World No.1 has 6,815 ranking points, and a title win will ensure he maintains that position.
Daniil Medvedev: The Russian has 6,330 ranking points, and would also return to the top, a position he once held, if he wins the title in Paris.
Novak Djokovic: The 22-time Grand Slam champion has 5,955 ranking points, and can only return to the top if he makes a run to the final. However, should the Serbian face and lose to Medvedev in the final, then the Russian will hold the World No.1 position.
Stefanos Tsitsipas: The Greek star's chances of becoming World No.1 for the first time are slim as he would have to win the French Open and hope Alcaraz loses before the fourth round, Medvedev before the quarter-final and Djokovic before the final.
