The player from Murcia will regain the second spot in the ranking if he achieves the same result as Jannik Sinner on the clay of the Monte Carlo Country Club.

Carlos Alcaraz fell from the top two positions of the ATP ranking after 567 days. The player from Murcia had maintained the number 1 or number 2 spot since September 12, 2022, when he became the youngest tennis player to lead the rankings.

Carlitos are now third in the world rankings, behind Novak Djokovic and Jannik Sinner, the recent champion of the Miami Open, who leads him by 65 points.

The Italian, with just a week’s margin, must go to the Monte Carlo Masters 1000 to defend 360 points from the semifinals of 2023. This means that Alcaraz only needs to match the result of his rival in the Monegasque territory to regain the second spot in the rankings, accoring to Marca.

It’s worth remembering that the protégé of Juan Carlos Ferrero was absent from last year’s Monte Carlo edition due to post-traumatic arthritis in his left hand.

The tournament, along with Rome, is the only one where he has the margin to gain points before Roland Garros because he is the reigning champion of the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell and the Mutua Madrid Open.
