ATP Race Update: Tabilo Leads Ahead Of Zverev After Winning Maiden Tour-Level Title

ATP Race Update: Tabilo Leads Ahead Of Zverev After Winning Maiden Tour-Level Title

by Nurein Ahmed

After the mad scramble of the opening two weeks, the ATP Race has an unfamiliar name topping the standings.

Chile's Alejandro Tabilo has amassed 250 ranking points after his unexpected title win in Auckland as a qualifier this past week. The 26-year-old's first-ever ATP title took him to the top spot in the Race to Turin, which tallies points earned during the season.

Tabilo, who has now recorded 378 points since November 2023 (after winning the Brasilia Challenger also as a qualifier), overtook Alexander Zverev in the top spot.

The German had led the race after the first week following his majestic form at the United Cup, where his country won the tournament. But Zverev, like most of his peers, decided to take a rest with the Australian Open looming on the horizon.

Alex de Minaur sits in third place with 315 points (he earned 50 points after progressing into the second round of the Australian Open). The Aussie is celebrating his second week inside the world's Top 10. Grigor Dimitrov and Andrey Rublev are tied in fourth position.

Jiri Lehecka was the other newest ATP champion last weekend after winning in Adelaide and rising to the sixth spot. Notably, none of the usual suspects of Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz, Daniil Medvedev, and Jannik Sinner feature so high in the list.

However, that will drastically change following the conclusion of the Australian Open, where a maximum of 2,000 points will be up for grabs. Djokovic has topped the year-end rankings eight times in his career - the most of any man. At least three players are tied for seventh. These include Jack Draper, Emil Ruusuvuori and Holger Rune.

Hubert Hurkacz rounds up the Top 10. The ATP Race holds significance in determining the player who will finish the season as the ATP's No. 1, and most importantly, acts as qualifying criteria for the ATP Finals and Next Gen ATP Finals.
