(Paris) The Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz, back at the top of the ATP rankings at the end of June thanks to his victory at Queen’s, approaches Wimbledon with the status of world No.1, while the American Tommy Paul regains the best ranking of his career ( 15th), Monday.
No change is recorded in the Top 10 this week, Alcaraz ahead of Serbian legend Novak Djokovic (2nd) – who will defend his title in the London Grand Slam – and Russian Daniil Medvedev (3rd).
You have to drop down to 15th place to see Tommy Paul come back two places, thanks to his final on Saturday at the Eastbourne tournament. The 26-year-old American thus regains his best ranking, already reached in mid-June.
His victorious opponent in Eastbourne, the Argentinian Francisco Cerundolo, certainly also scored points, but that did not allow him to improve on his 19th place.
In addition to the confidence accumulated before Wimbledon, he can however be proud of having been the first Argentine titled on grass since 1995.
