Before the start of the two 1000s events in Canada and the United States of America, which precede the US Open (last Grand Slam of the year), the race classification has been updated, guaranteeing qualification for the Nitto ATP Finals for the top eight tennis players.
The most important change of the week is undoubtedly Stefanos Tsitsipas regaining fourth place, who scored 3435 points thanks to the win in Los Cabos. The Greek player overtook Jannik Sinner and Andrey Rublev in one shot, even if he remains far from the podium of this important classification. The Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz (who will surely participate) is still in the lead, ahead of the Serbian Novak Djokovic, who should have an official ticket to Turin at the end of the Rogers Cup, even if the participation after winning the first two Slams of the season is already certain.
Daniil Medvedev retains third place with an opportunity to secure qualification with the Toronto triumph.
The other players
The Italian Jannick Sinner, who is currently sixth with a score of 3185, still has the situation in the table under control: Even if Holger Rune (seventh) is not far away, the Blue has a lead of around 800 points over the American TaylorFritz. who he has brushed but who is currently the first eliminated from the competition.
The American is expected to face Norway’s Roland Garros runner-up Casper Ruud, who is eighth and just 100 points behind him. Candido, 21, is set to secure one of eight spots in Canada or Cincinnati next week.
In the background after the US Open, the China Tour and other indoor hard court tournaments for mortgage qualification are available. In conclusion, the chances of seeing Sinner in Turin remain very concrete, although of course the Italian must not underestimate his opponents who can regain ground with a good result in the next events in America.
Tsitsipas will be one of the main stars of the upcoming US tournaments, culminating in the last major of the year in Flushing Meadows.
