A hung set earlier than heading for a sixth trophy: how Djoko equaled Federer


Winner for the seventh time on the Heart Court docket, Novak Djokovic was the principle loser of the unilateral resolution of the All England Membership in strictly accounting phrases. The “Djoker” formally ends with 4820 factors, which is… stack 2000 lower than Carlos Alcaraz. With 6820 factors, he would due to this fact come again as much as the younger Spaniard, however the latter had reached the spherical of 16 on English grass. He would due to this fact have preserved 180 margin factors over Djokovic regardless of his absence on the Turin Masters and the Serbian’s full card on the Pala Alpitour final week.

World No. 1 Alcaraz like no different: “He’s nearly an anomaly within the historical past of tennis”

Rafael Nadal was disadvantaged of 720 factors in his semi-final at Wimbledon, the place he forfeited earlier than going through Nick Kyrgios. His remaining whole ought to thus have been 6740 factors. Regardless of his two Grand Slam titles this yr, the Mallorcan ought to due to this fact have been content material with the third step of the rostrum. However the prime three would actually be in a handkerchief: solely 260 factors would separate the primary from the third.

Behind, the 2 massive winners of this reworked classification with Wimbledon are clearly Nick Kyrgios and Cameron Norrie. The Australian, twenty second on the earth on the finish of this season, would have really completed on the gates of the High 10 with the factors of his remaining in London. With 3070 factors, he would are available eleventh place, the perfect rating of his profession. He would level simply behind Cameron Norrie, who couldn’t capitalize on his first main semi-final. The Brit could be tenth. On the prime of the desk, when it comes to locations, Kyrgios and Norrie are clearly the principle losers from the shortage of factors at Wimbledon.

Decrease within the hierarchy, two gamers can have massive regrets. David Goffin, first. The Belgian had a tough season, nevertheless it was at Wimbledon that he had his greatest lead to main tournaments by reaching the quarter-finals. For nothing, no less than when it comes to rating. 52nd on Monday, he ought to have been twenty locations greater. Ditto for Christian Garin (quarter-finalist). The Chilean, eighty fifth on the earth, loses about forty locations within the case.

And what about Tim van Rijthoven. The Dutchman, the good revelation of the brief grass season, had reached the spherical of 16 earlier than dropping to Novak Djokovic. He due to this fact misplaced 180 factors within the case. With these, the good Batavian server wouldn’t be a hundred and fifteenth like as we speak, however round a hundred and fifteenth place.
