Change in the elite. Daniil Medvedev achieved the only rise in the Top 10 of the ATP world rankings of the week, by surpassing Roger Federer and returning to No. 4 from the listing. The Russian did it after his conquest of the Masters 1000 in Paris, but he had already made it happen with his access to the semifinals in the French capital.
Despite his irregular year, the Russian, fourth from his country to win the last Masters 1000 of the season, was able to indulge himself in climbing an important position. And it was, this Monday, the only change among the top 10 of the classification.
The Russian got just over 300 points from the Swiss, inactive due to injury and that he could only play in this 2020 special the Australian Open. On his own, Medvedev thus equaled his best position, as he was No. 4 ATP after last year’s US Open, when he lost to Spain’s Rafael Nadal in the final.
Precisely, the southpaw continues to be Novak Djokovic’s escort on the list and thus they arrive at the closing date of 2020, at the ATP Finals in London that will begin next Sunday. The Serbian has already made sure to finish the season as World No. 1Regardless of what happens in London, to match American Pete Sampras with six years finished at the top.
