The Masters 1000 in Paris, France, has the potential to cause changes in the ATP rankings. In the last update, carried out this Monday, October 30th, Novak Djokovic remained at the top of the rankings for the 397th week in his career.

The current number 1 defends his runner-up position in the French tournament and the ATP World Finals title, which will be discounted next Monday, November 6th. In total, Djokovic will have 2100 points removed from his score, while Alcaraz will only have 180 points deducted, referring to the quarterfinals in Bency. Therefore, to overcome the Serbian, the Spaniard will need to reach the final, as long as his opponent in the decision is not Djokovic.

Even in a scenario where both players reach the final and Carlos beats Djokovic in that match, the Serb will remain at the top of the ATP rankings. To take first place, the Spaniard will need to reach the final and count on Djokovic being eliminated until the semifinals. In the ranking update this Monday, October 30th, Daniil Medvedev remained in third place, while Jannik Sinner rose to fourth place due to his title in Vienna, Austria. Andrey Rublev closed the Top 5 of the ranking.
