ATP: No change in the top 20

The top 20 in the ATP rankings, published on Monday, remained unchanged and Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz continues to dominate his throne due to his withdrawal from the Australian Open tennis tournament.

The 19-year-old could lose his place in the first place to the Norwegian Casper Ruud, the third in the world, if the latter reached the final in Australia or if the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas 1 fourth, and the Serbian Novak Djokovic, the fifth, sanctified in Melbourne.

Alcaraz, who in September after winning the US International became the youngest No. 1 player in the history of the ATP circuit since its inception in 1973, should resume the competition habit in mid-February in Buenos Aires.

The reigning Australian Open champion, his compatriot Rafael Nadal, the second, cannot regain the top spot in the ATP rankings, which he held for 209 weeks.

Quebecer Félix Auger-Aliassime is seventh.
