Novak Djokovic may be playing pretty sparingly at the moment but his place as the world No 1 is still more than secure.

The Serb began a record-extending 422nd week as ATP world No 1 on Monday, still 1,330 points ahead of Jannik Sinner, the No 2. However, with Djokovic not playing in Madrid this week, the Italian could close the gap with a good run.

Sinner also has a bit of a cushion over the No 3, Carlos Alcaraz, who drops 500 points having missed Barcelona (he also pulled out of Monte-Carlo the previous week) due to injury.

Casper Ruud cut the gap between himself in sixth and the No 5, Alexander Zverev, thanks to his win in the Barcelona final, where he took out the Monte-Carlo champion, Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Struff rises after first title

Jan-Lennard Struff climbs four places to No 24 after his first career title, having beaten Taylor Fritz in the Munich final. Fritz is also on the move, up two to No 13, while Frances Tiafoe also climbs two to 21.
