ATP Race to London Shakeups Following the French Open

The ATP Race to London is going to be another close one this year. Let’s take a look at who’s leading following the French Open.

With men’s singles tennis seeing several veteran greats and up and coming stars going at it, the ATP Race to London is gearing up to get even tighter. Following the French Open, all eyes are on King of Clay Rafael Nadal. The Spanish superstar won his 12th title at Roland Garros and is now eager to see what happens at Wimbledon.

This week, Nadal swapped places with world number one Novak Djokovic for the top position in the ATP Race to London. Behind them is none other than Roger Federer.

The Swiss tennis legend moves up one place in the singles race following his own impressive performance at Roland Garros. Federer made it to the semifinals, falling to eventual champion Nadal in straight sets.

Behind Federer is Austrian tennis star Dominic Thiem. This year’s runner-up to Nadal at the French Open, Thiem is vying for any and all success he can experience on the 2019 ATP Tour. Despite back to back second place finishes at Roland Garros, Thiem is on fire. He moves from the fifth position into the fourth place in the ATP Race to London.

Two major shakeups come just behind Thiem. Rising ATP star Stefanos Tsitsipas has emerged this past year as one of the next big things on the ATP Tour. He falls two places in the singles race though and is now number five. Behind him is Japanese tennis star Kei Nishikori who jumps two places and positions himself nicely in the sixth spot.
