World No. 1 Alcalas lost to No. 135 and was eliminated in the third round of the Rome Open
Carlos Alcaras (2nd, Spain), who will return to world No. 1 next week, failed to advance to the round of 16 after losing to No. 135 in the world at the BNL Italy International (Roma Open), the Men’s Professional Tennis (ATP) Tour Masters 1000 series.
Alkaras lost 0-2 (3-6, 6-7) to Fabian Marozan (135th, Hungary) in the 3rd round of singles on the 6th day of the tournament held in Rome, Italy on the 16th. Alkaras lost to a player outside the 100th place in the world rankings in November 2021 after losing 0-2 (4-6 5-7) to Hugo Gaston (France), who was 103rd at the time. Alkaras, who had a record of 30 wins and 2 losses before this game, suffered a third loss with the loss that day. Marozan, who was the first to advance to the final round of the ATP Tour, reached the round of 16 by catching a big fish and faced Borna Choric (Croatia), who is ranked 16th in the world.
Although he suffered a shocking defeat, Alkaras advanced to the third round of this tournament and became No. 1 over Novak Djokovic (Serbia) in the world rankings announced after the tournament. The Masters 1000 Series is a tournament in which 1,000 points are awarded to the winner, and is a tournament that belongs to the next level after the Grand Slam. The tennis ranking system is a method of accumulating points after converting the performance of the past year into points, but Alkaras did not participate in the Rome Open last year to treat an ankle injury. On the other hand, Djokovic, who won the Rome Open last year, has no change in points even if he wins this year.
Currently, in the men’s singles ranking, Djokovic is first with 6775 points and Alkaras is second with 6770 points. However, Alkaras passed the first round of the Rome Open on the 11th with a bye and earned 10 ranking points given for passing the first round. As a result, it has been confirmed that Alkaras will surpass Djokovic and rise to No. 1 in the rankings to be announced next week. Djokovic advances to the round of 16 and competes with Cameron Norrie (13th, England) for a place in the quarterfinals. 토스카지노
