With the Rafael Nadal’s loss to Lloyd Harris in the knockout stages of the Washington ATP 500, something that was a surprise on the circuit, the ranking will undergo an important change from next Monday: Stefanos Tsitsipas will be the new N ° 3 in the world. Given this, Nick Kyrgios maintains a positive streak against the three new leaders.
The australian He twice beat Novak Djokovic (1st), Daniil Medvedev (2nd) and Tsitsipas (currently 4th).
He surpassed the Serbian in 2017 on both occasions: it was in Acapulco, in the quarterfinals, and also in the Indian Wells Masters 1000. He is one of the few top players in the record against Nole.
Something similar happened against the Russian, but in 2019. First he beat him in the Masters 1000 in Rome and then in the final of precisely the ATP 500 in Washington, a triumph that earned him the title that he could not defend in this edition.
Finally, the Greek had beaten him in the 2019 Washington semifinals and 2020 ATP Cup, both on hard court.
This statistic became possible after Nadal’s departure from the Top 3, because against Manacorí he is at a disadvantage: the Spanish leads the series 5-3.
In this way, the current N ° 77 in the world will not be in the foreground of the ranking but he does have the privilege of having successfully beaten the new Top 3 of the circuit.
