Novak’s back!

Djokovic, who will return to the court at Monte-Carlo next week, has a 380-point lead over second-ranked Alcaraz. He will defend just ten points at Monte-Carlo, where he lost his first match to Alejandro Davidovich Fokina last year.

The World No.1 will defend a total of 1880 points between now and the end of Roland-Garros.

Alcaraz, meanwhile, only defends 10 points at Monte-Carlo as well. The 19-year-old is defending 1870 points between now and the end of Roland-Garros.

Medvedev up to No.4

Daniil Medvedev jumps back into the Top 4 after claiming the title in Miami. The Russian leapfrogs Casper Ruud and is 620 points behind third-ranked Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Italy's Jannik Sinner is back at his career-high ranking of No.9. The Miami runner-up is just 25 points behind 8th-ranked Holger Rune.

The biggest riser inside the Top 100 is American Chris Eubanks. A quarterfinalist last week in Miami, Eubanks jumps 34 spots to No.85 – he is one of 14 Americans inside the Top 100 this week.

Finland’s Emil Ruusuvuori is the biggest gainer inside the Top 50. He climbs 17 spots thanks to a Miami quarterfinal, and ends up at 37.

France’s Luca Van Assche also jumps 17 spots to make his Top 100 debut at No.91. The 18-year-old has never won an ATP level match, but claimed the Sanremo Challenger title last week, defeating Juan Pablo Varillas in the final. Van Assche also won the Pau Challenger title in February, defeating Arthur Rinderknech and Ugo Humbert in his semifinal and final rounds.
