ATP Race: Novak Djokovic, Daniil Medvedev and Carlos Alcaraz almost in turin

The first part of the 2023 season has ended in the ATP Tour and it's time for the first balance sheets to evaluate the year's performance of the best tennis players in the world. A certainly important yardstick for comparison is the Race Ranking for the ATP Finals in Turin, which takes into account the points obtained from January to November.

The situation is rather peculiar and in the coming weeks the fight to conquer one of the top eight places will become more and more intense and become very interesting. In Italy, at the PalaAlpitour, the participation of Novak Djokovic is almost official: the Serbian champion, having even won two Grand Slam titles this year, can also place himself in the top 20 to be sure of being in the game in November.

Currently at the top, the 36-year-old from Belgrade could already clear the pass by winning Wimbledon, given that the limit is currently set at 6545 points (of course it will drop as the weeks and tournaments go by). The other two athletes who are almost inside are Daniil Medvedev and Carlos Alcaraz, both with over 4000 points collected.

Down from the podium there is a lot of balance: Tsitsipas has a small margin on Holger Rune, Jannik Sinner and Casper Ruud, all enclosed in less than 300 points. Not far away are Taylor Fritz and Karen Khachanov, who want to be in the match for Turin.

The scenario:

Novak Djokovic 4745
Daniel Medvedev 4310
Carlos Alcaraz 4175
Stefanos Tsitsipas 2950
Holger Runes 2485
Jannik Sinner 2365
Andrey Rublev 2305
Casper Ruud 2205
Taylor Fritz 2040
Karen Khachanov 1900
Cameron Norrie 1625
Frances Tiafoe 1570
Tommy Paul 1515
Alexander Zverev 1450
Jan-Lennard Struff 1322

WTA Finals, Sabalenka ahead of Swiatek

A lot of balance also in the Race of the women's Tour.

At the moment it is Aryna Sabalenka who leads the group, ahead of Iga Swiatek and Elena Rybakina (rather detached from the others). American Jessica Pegula is fourth, with a margin of about 300 points from Roland Garros finalist Karolina Muchova.

Currently completing the top 8, albeit by tiny margins over the rest of the competition, are Coco Gauff, Belinda Bencic and Barbora Krejcikova.
