The 2024 Italian Open was not a fruitful tournament for the top four ATP players, with Alexander Zverev, Nicolas Jarry and Alejandro Tabilo all benefitting.

Zverev and Jarry will meet in the men’s final in Rome on Sunday in what will be their seventh career meeting, with the German holding a 4-2 head-to-head lead.

ATP Top 10 before Rome

1) Novak Djokovic – 9,990
2) Jannik Sinner – 8,860
3) Carlos Alcaraz – 7,345
4) Daniil Medvedev – 7,195
5) Alexander Zverev – 5,435
6) Andrey Rublev – 4,740
7) Casper Ruud – 4,535
8) Stefanos Tsitsipas – 3,860
9) Hubert Hurkacz – 3,730
10) Grigor Dimitrov – 3,605

Sinner and Alcaraz were both unable to gain any points in Rome given they did not compete, and the pair are set to drop 90 and 45 points respectively from their runs at the 2023 event.

Djokovic missed the chance to strengthen his position as the world No 1 in the absence of his rivals, though, as he fell in the third round to Tabilo.

The Serbian will lose 130 points, having made the Italian Open quarter-finals last year, meaning Sinner and Alcaraz will marginally reduce the gap to top spot.

Medvedev has suffered the biggest ranking blow among the top four as his points tally will drop by 900 points from 7,195 to 6,295. The Russian lost in the last 16 to Tommy Paul, having won the tournament in 2023.

By reaching the final, fifth-ranked Zverev has cut the deficit to Medvedev to just 300 points in the Live ATP Rankings. If the German were to claim the title on Sunday, the 1000 points earned would take him 50 points clear of Medvedev and see him secure the world No 4 spot.

Rome quarter-finalists Hubert Hurkacz and Stefanos Tsitsipas will switch places, with the Pole climbing to eighth spot and the Greek dropping to ninth.

Chinese star Zhang Zhizhen, who reached the quarter-finals in Rome, will surge up 14 spots from 56th to 42nd — a new career-high.

Brazilian Thiago Monteiro, who lost to Zhang in the fourth round, has ensured his return to the top 100. The 29-year-old will jump 23 places to world No 83.

Alexandre Muller is another player set for a significant ranking boost after reaching the last 16 in Rome, with the Frenchman to climb 20 places from 109th to 89th.

Big Losers

Fabian Marozsan will slide five places from 36th to 41st after losing in the opening round to fall short of his fourth round result in 2023.

Former world No 12 Borna Coric will drop further down the ATP Rankings as his difficult season continued with a first round exit in Rome. The 27-year-old Croatian, who made the last eight at the Italian Open last year, is set to slip 15 places from 55th to 70th.

Yannick Hanfmann, who reached the quarter-finals in Rome as a qualifier a year ago, will fall a hefty 26 spots from 59th to 85th after losing in the opening round this year.
