Disaster for Federer, good operation for Mededev

The day after Rafael Nadal’s 21st Grand Slam crown, still fifth in the hierarchy, Daniil Medvedev, beaten in the final by the Spaniard, got closer to Novak Djokovic, absent in Melbourne. As for Roger Federer (30th), he no longer appears in the world’s top twenty for the first time since April 2001. On the French side, Gaël Monfils climbs to 16th place. Mannarino and Moutet gain eleven places.

Medvedev on the heels of Djokovic, Federer and Thiem in distress. While waiting to perhaps dislodge him very quickly from his throne as leader, Daniil Medvedev, beaten in the final of the Australian Open by Rafael Nadal on Sunday, puts pressure on the Serb. This Monday, the Russian is only 890 points behind the great absentee of this first Major of the season within an unchanged Top 10.

Despite his 21st Grand Slam coronation, the extra-terrestrial Nadal indeed retains his fifth place in the hierarchy for the moment, ahead of Matteo Berrettini, dominated by the Majorcan in the quarter-finals and who climbs to sixth position, instead of by Andrey Rublev, who is down another rank. Still away from the courts, Roger Federer now appears in thirtieth place. The Swiss who had reached the semi-finals in Melbourne two years ago fell again (-13) and left the Top 20. What had not happened to him since April 23, 2001.

Top 15 straight ahead for Monfils

The crossing of the desert also continues for another champion Dominic Thiem. Also at the stop, the Austrian fell to 37th place. For Gaël Monfils, on the other hand, the barometer is looking good at the start of the season. Quarter-finalist in Melbourne, the French number 1 climbs to sixteenth place (+4). A fruitful fortnight also for Adrian Mannarino, who rose from 69th to 58th place, as for Corentin Moutet, who also jumped eleven places (89th), Richard Gasquet (75th, +6) and Benoît Paire (54th, +2). Forced to forfeit before his second match, against Briton Evans, Arthur Rinderknech paid the price in the standings. The Varois, 48th before this Australian Open, fell to 60th place.
