The location was then official Presentation of the ATP was updated Monday morning. This is the first time that Rune has made it to the top ten.
The day before, he had very unexpectedly beaten tennis icon Novak Djokovic in the ATP1000 final in Paris. He did it after a comeback with sets 3-6, 6-3, 7-5.
This victory makes Rune the first reserve of the ATP play-offs in Turin. There, Casper Ruud is qualified in the sense that he is well within the top eight of the standings. Since world number one Carlos Alcaraz called off, Rune has moved up the reserve roster. The Dane will be able to play the tournament in the next case of injury or illness on the pitch.
Ruud is still number four in the ATP rankings. He was world runner-up after losing the US Open final in September, but has since struggled with his form and retired early in several competitions. Last week there was a stoppage in the round of 16 of the Paris Masters.
