The Italian’s leap forward after the triumph in Beijing
Jannik Sinner becomes number 4 in the ATP ranking. The Italian, 22 years old, rose from seventh to fourth position after his triumph in the ATP tournament in Beijing with a leap that will be certified by the new ranking on Monday 9 October. Sinner will rise to 4875 points, leaving behind the Greek Stefano Tsitipas (4615), the Dane Holger Rune (4605) and the Russian Andrei Rublev (4515).
Sinner chases the Big Three
Completing the top ten are the American Taylor Fritz (3955), the Norwegian Casper Ruud (3605) and the German Alexander Zverev (3450). Sinner stands at the foot of the podium, currently out of his reach. In third place is Daniil Medvedev, with 7490 points after the final lost in Beijing. The Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz, beaten by Sinner in the semi-final, is second with 8715 points. At the top, undisputed number 1, the Serbian Novak Djokovic with 11545 points.
The race to the ATP Finals
The triumph in Beijing is also fundamental for Sinner with a view to the 2023 ATP Finals, scheduled in Turin from 12 to 19 November. The blue puts a claim on fourth place in the Race to Turin – behind Djokovic, Alcaraz and Medvedev – with the certainty of avoiding the Russian in the group draw of the competition reserved for the best 8 in the world.
The Race ranking is drawn up based on the results obtained in the calendar year and not in the last 52 weeks, as happens in the ATP ranking. The end of the race coincides with the Paris-Bercy Masters 1000 which decrees the first 8 positions of the Race.
