Following another exciting week of tennis on the ATP Tour, there have been more changes in our top ten. There are a few injury worries for our top stars, and there's a potential return to the top ten for a number of players. With Rome on the way, we're really starting to get a good feel for how players are shaping up this clay court season.

A crazy week of action in Madrid saw some huge upsets and a few worrying signs with Roland Garros just around the corner. It was a much-needed strong week for Andrey Rublev, who picked up a second Masters 1000 title, putting an end to his four-match losing streak. Things went well for Felix Auger-Aliassime as well, who took advantage of others' misfortune as he sailed through to the final, whilst others sustained injuries. But for young stars Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz, injuries in the capital, have seen them forced out of next week's tournament in Rome.

With that in mind, it's time to have a look at our latest ATP Power Rankings. Did injuries see Alcaraz and Sinner fall? Did Rublev do enough to return to the top ten? Let's find out!

ATP Power Rankings ahead of Rome Masters

1. Jannik Sinner (Previous Ranking - 1)

The impressive Italian has had a dream 2024 so far, but things may be quickly unraveling. He was unable to take to the court for his quarter-final in Madrid and has been forced to withdraw from his home tournament next time out. A worrying press conference from the 22-year-old hinted at a potential withdrawal from the French Open as well, which would be a huge shame considering the form he's been in so far this year. That being said, his form regardless of any injury concerns, keeps him firmly in the top spot.

2. Novak Djokovic (Previous Ranking - 2)

The Serb took a break after Monte-Carlo, so missed out on the mayhem in Madrid. He'll be back in action for Rome however, and with the likes of Sinner and Alcaraz out injured, will no doubt be the favorite to pick up a first title of the season. Speaking of those injuries, a strong few weeks for Djokovic and with Roland Garros not long away, the number one spot could well be back on the cards...

3. Carlos Alcaraz (Previous Ranking - 3)

Another week, another injury for Alcaraz, who's also withdrawn from the Rome Masters next week. The Spaniard lost to the eventual champion in the quarter-finals but re-aggravated an arm injury which will see him miss the final clay Masters of the season. Fans will hope that the now 21-year-old will be ready to go for the French Open, where if fit, he would be a strong contender for the title.

4. Daniil Medvedev (Previous Ranking - 4)

The Russian was next in the long line of injuries suffered in Madrid, as he retired mid-match against Jiri Lehecka in the quarter-finals. It doesn't seem to be as severe as his rivals, however, and he'll be ready to try to defend his Italian Open title this week. It will be a tough ask but as we always say with Medvedev, you just never know.

5. Casper Ruud (Previous Ranking - 5)

Things were bound to slow down at some point for Ruud, and a last-16 defeat shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. Nevertheless, the Norwegian has been in great form as of late, and he'll hope that getting knocked out slightly earlier, will give him a better chance of a deep run in Rome. If he were to do so, a place in the top four may well be up for grabs.

6. Alexander Zverev (Previous Ranking - 6)

It has been a very underwhelming clay-court season for Zverev so far, and he certainly didn't wow fans in his fourth-round defeat to Francisco Cerundolo. We know that the German can produce big results on the surface, and will be hoping to bounce back with a big week in Italy. He'll need to, or the chasing pack could make a move.

7. Stefanos Tsitsipas (Previous Ranking - 7)

Similarly to Ruud, the Greek crashed back down to earth losing to Thiago Monteiro in his first round in Madrid. After two finals in two tournaments, Tsitsipas showed more of the form that we had come to expect in 2024. With his place in these rankings heavily inflated by those few weeks in Monte Carlo and Barcelona, he'll need a strong performance in Rome, to prove his worth in the top ten.

8. Alex de Minaur (Previous Ranking - 8)

1-1 in his recent battles against Rafael Nadal, the Australian came up short this time as he fell at the first hurdle in Madrid. Not the most inspiring of weeks by any stretch, but he'll have a good chance to perform in Rome, with a few of the big names out injured. It's weeks like these that De Minaur has capitalized on so far this season, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him make a run to at least the quarter-finals in Italy.

9. Andrey Rublev (Previous Ranking - Unranked)

LLLL...W! The losing streak is over and in a big way. Rublev's 2024 seemed to be unraveling, and unraveling fast as he fell quickly out of our top ten, off the back of a number of disappointing performances. It seemed to be a completely different Rublev that turned up in Madrid however, battling past Alcaraz, Taylor Fritz, and Auger-Aliassime en route to the title. If he can back up his big win in Spain, with a solid week in Rome, then we may well see the Russian heading back toward the top five.

10. Hubert Hurkacz (Previous Ranking - 10)

There were a few contenders for the number 10 spot on the rankings, but once again Hurkacz held on. Fritz and Grigor Dimitrov may feel hard done by, but the Pole's title in Estoril has just enough weight to keep him alive and kicking in these rankings. The 27-year-old fell to Fritz in the last 16 and will need a better week than the American next time out if he wants to hold on to 10th place.
