The carder smiles and jokes with Sener, his executioner, despite losing his second straight final in Umag, after winning his first five games. Something like that had to come and they knew it from the tennis player’s closest environment. Antonio Martinez Cascalis, founder of the JC Ferrero Equelite Academy, where Alcaraz has become a tennis player, says that he accompanied Murcian in Umag. Carlitos is in the process – even more so young – and he has had to go from going to tournaments with the illusion that he’s just being there, to being the center of attention, one of the pictures, the main favourite, the one who has to appear in the pictures…”The few months were The past is complicated since he turned 19 in May and the changes in everything have been so great: meeting celebrities, commitments, appreciation…”, continues Cascales. «The time will come for you to have more peace of mind, put up with all this and even clear a few of your non-work commitmentsBecause tennis at this level requires a lot. And while we understand that people, friends and the media are always there.” Everything went fast and would settle down. The next challenge is the North American Stadium and the US Open.
Carlos is number 4 in the world and from now on he doesn’t defend a lot of points in the fight for the ATP ranking. Yes in New York, where he became known to the whole world last year when he reached the quarter-finals, but not in the previous Masters 1000, a reflection of what changed his life: in Canada he did not participate because he did not have a rating and in Cincinnati he was beaten in the first round after passing Preliminary role. The ATP allocates some points based on the round reached in each session that expires in 52 weeks, which is why there is talk of defending what was achieved last year to add or not lose. Not playing as much in 2021 puts Carlos in a fight for the top spot between now and the end of the year, although that’s still the number one goal he has in mind. He defends 35 points in Cincinnati, 90 at Winston-Salem (he won’t go this year), 360 at the US Open, 90 at Paris Percy, 180 in Vienna and 10 at Indian Wells (in 2021 it was held on a rare date. Because of the pandemic) . If he has an excellent performance, he will continue to rise infinitely…
Number one in the air
Because number one is so high in the air and with so many suitors. Classification now says:
- 1. Medvedev 7625 points
- 2 – Zverev, 6850
- 3. Nadal 6165 points
- 4- Alkaraz 5,035
- 5. Tsitsipas 5000
- 6- Djokovic, 4770
RavBasically, he owns it It is better to sit on the throne. It’s a battle She’s been a stranger to him for a long timeBut if you get there it will be a great prize. The Balearic did not play in these tournaments last season due to a foot injury, which is why the panorama practically only adds up, while their rivals have obstacles. with The season finale is good or maybe even back to the top, although that wouldn’t change their calendar, which is currently Montreal and the US Open. He only defends 45 points in Washington, which you will lose on Monday, and 500 points in Canada, carried over from 2019 due to the special circumstances of the pandemic. To make the final count: If he wins in New York He will be number one unless Medvedev touches perfection and beats Los Cabos (where he is now), Cincinnati and Montreal, and reaches the US Open final. And they stayed next to each other. This is only this month. The odds will continue to grow the next day. In fact, if last year he was able to play normally, it stands to reason that he was already number one after winning two Grand Slams.
Djokovic has been seen He was hurt because the points were not distributed at Wimbledon due to the boycott of the Russian players and because he did not play in Australia due to the chaos caused by his lack of vaccination. also, Now he can’t go to the US Open, so you will lose 1200 finalist points for 2021 and not be able to add. He defended another 1,000 in Paris Bercy and 600 in the ATP Finals. It is almost unlikely to finish 2022 again as the best.
The current number is Medvedev is very committed to the impressive results achieved in the past year: Won in Canada (1,000 points), semi-finalist in Cincinnati (360), US Open champion (2000), and reached the final in Paris (600) and in the ATP finals (1,000). By repeating that, that he would definitely sign, he would keep the points for now. He himself admitted that he is waiting for that fight in the standings and that it is natural for Rafa to “finish the year in first place”. “But I can continue with that for a while,” he added.
a Zverev, ranked number two in the world, is throwing his weight on the injury he suffered in Paris. Before the US Open, he will lose 1,090 points from Cincinnati and Canada because he will not participate. It is also not known if he would have made it to New York, as Nadal could have already outdone him. In addition, he has to defend, among other things, his title in the ATP Finals (1300 points).
Tsitsipas, with 990 defending points, is also in the fray, in a similar position to that of Alcaraz.
