Alcaraz wins to return to number one spot

Carlos Alcaraz needed only one hour, 11 minutes to sweep past in-form Daniil Medvedev to win the Indian Wells title and return to world number one.

The US Open Champion climbed above Novak Djokovic at the top of the ATP rankings with a 6-3 6-2 victory. It is the 19-year-old Spaniard’s third career Masters 1,000 title. It was Medvedev’s first defeat in 19 matches, having won successive tournaments in Rotterdam, Doha and Dubai.

Djokovic was forced to miss the tournament in California because he was unable to enter the United States because he is not vaccinated against Covid-19. He will also miss this week’s Miami Open, where Alcaraz is defending champion.

Alcaraz is only the second player after fellow countryman Rafael Nadal to win at least three Masters 1,000 titles as a teenager. He has taken then tennis world by storm since his ATP tour debut in 2020 and ended 2022 as world number one. However, a hamstring injury saw him miss the Australian Open, and Djokovic’s victory there saw the Serb reclaim the number one position.

Alcaraz returned to competitive action in February, winning the Argentina Open and reaching the final of the Rio Open before his Indian Wells win. He must defend his Miami Open title in order to retain his spot at the top of the rankings.

Nadal drops out of top ten for first time since 2005

Meanwhile Alcaraz’s compatriot Nadal has dropped out of the world’s top 10 for the first time since April 2005 – a run of 912 consecutive weeks. The 36-year-old, who has slipped to 13th, has not played since injuring his left leg at the Australian Open, but is hoping to return to action in Monte Carlo in April. This will be a return to his favourite surface of clay, and Nadal will hope to be fit enough to challenge for a record-extending 15th title in the French Open at the end of the clay court season.

Rybakina wins Indian Wells

Elena Rybakina gained revenge for her Australian Open final loss by beating Aryna Sabalenka in straight sets to win the Indian Wells title. Wimbledon champions Rybakina of Kazakhstan won 7-6 (13-11), 6-4 to claim her first WTA 1000 victory.

French Open 2023 Outright Winner Odds

Djokovic’s superb start to 2023, including his record extending Australian Open win, sees him remain as the bookies’ favourite to win the French Open, despite Alcaraz’s return to number one in the ATP rankings. The US Open champion is second favourite. Alcaraz, is ahead of countryman Nadal. Nadal has won the French Open a staggering 14 times, and despite his recent fitness issues, cannot be ruled out, despite slipping to 13th in the rankings
