Djokovic increases his lead over Nadal by 400 points: 1,410

One of the rewards that Novak Djokovic obtained this Monday for his triumph in the final of the 1,000 Masters in Rome was the extension of his advantage as number one in the ranking over two, Rafa Nadal. Given that the Serbian was runner-up in the tournament last year when he fell precisely against the Spanish, the victory against Schwarztman earned him 400 points, because he defended 600. With them he accumulates 11,260 in the ranking, 1,410 more than Nadal.

Djokovic has in his hand to finish 2020 as the leader, since he can still add a maximum of 1,280 goals at Roland Garros, since in 2019 he lost in the semifinals and left with 720. There Nadal has nothing to gain because he was champion and took the 2,000 that it means to win the trophy. In the remainder of the year, Nole cannot add to the 1,000 Masters in Paris, because he won it, but he can in the ATP Finals, in which he did not pass the group stage and took 200 points out of a maximum of 1,500.

Nadal, for his part, can add up to 640 points to his account at Paris-Bercy after falling in the semifinals and obtaining 360. And also in the Finals, since last year it did not reach the groups either and had 400 as a prize. With the open possibility that they will compete in one of the new tournaments on the calendar, the fight is still alive, but with more chances of success for Djokovic.
