Medvedev still n°1, Monfils only Frenchman in the Top 50

If Daniil Medvedev has not yet won a single tournament in 2022, he nevertheless consolidates his place as world No. 1 in the ATP ranking published on Monday. Defeated in the final of the Halle grass tournament on Sunday by Hubert Hurkacz, the Russian has therefore just fallen twice in a row in the final (beaten at ‘s-Hertogenbosch by Tim van Rijthoven the previous week), but he scored points in the heat and is guaranteed to keep his crown at the end of Wimbledon, Grand Slam where no points will be awarded and of which he will be deprived.

The collapse of Ugo Humbert

For the French, on the other hand, the sight of the classification is a bit of a pain since there is now only Gaël Monfils in the Top 50. An unprecedented situation, not seen since February 2005! Positioned in 23rd place, the French n°1 now defends the fort alone, after the spectacular collapse of Ugo Humbert. Victorious in Halle in 2021, but eliminated in the second round of the German tournament this year, the Messin lost 458 points at once, dropping from 50th to 103rd place in the world!
