A major change. After a great tournament, there are usually great changes in the ranking and this time there were few of weight. In the elite, Stefanos Tsitsipas, who reached his first Grand Slam final at Roland Garros, lost to No. 1 Novak Djokovic, allowed him to move up one place and reach his best position, being No. 4 in the ranking after displacing Dominic Thiem .
At age 22, Tsitsipas completed his best Grand Slam and even took a 2-0 lead in the deciding match over Djokovic in sets. But finally the greater experience, solidity and physique of the Serbian weighed to prevail in five sets in a high-level final on the traditional clay of Paris.
That performance at the French Open, with six victories and the arrival of the great definition, served Tsitsipas, the first Greek in a Grand Slam final in singles, to take away the fourth place in the ranking from Thiem, who arrived (and lost ) two finals in Paris, both against Rafael Nadal. Precisely, the Spanish fell this time to Djokovic in the semifinal and remains N ° 3 ATP.
In this way, Djokovic, who had lost at Roland Garros 2020 in the final against Nadal, added more units and escaped at the top of the list. His escort is still Daniil Medvedev, who in turn took more advantage of the Spanish. Meanwhile, the Serbian passed Tsitsipas and also leads the race to the ATP Finals in Turin, with the addition only in 2021.
For his part, Roger Federer, who returned to play the French Open and agreed to the round of 16, where he did not show up to play due to physical discomfort, continues to benefit from the ranking frozen by the Covid pandemic and maintained eighth place.
Among Latin Americans, Diego Schwartzman came out of the Top 10 when he was displaced by the Spanish Roberto Bautista Agut, who went ahead one place. The Argentine, now No. 11, reached the quarterfinals in Paris but had made the semifinals a year earlier, losing in both cases to Nadal.
On his own, Chilean Cristian Garin managed to improve four places and thus returned to the Top 20 to finish 19th. After his best task in a Grand Slam, since he made the round of 16 in Paris, he established himself as second in the region, after losing to Medvedev.
