Nadal races Djokovic number 1 in the world: Can “overturn” at Indian Wells
The player who holds the number one position in the world, Novak Djokovic will attend the Indian Wells 2020 with an impressive string of achievements 18 straight victories and has not lost any match since the new year. The Serbian has won all three tournaments in 2020, the ATP Cup, the Australian Open and the Dubai Tennis Championship.
However, Nole’s number one position in the world has not been firmly established by the name Rafael Nadal. The Spaniard also got off to a good start in 2020, reaching the quarter-finals of the Australian Open 2020 and winning the Mexican Open without losing a set.
Currently, Djokovic is getting 10,220 points on the ATP rankings, more than 370 points compared to Rafael Nadal. This means that the Spanish tennis player can completely take over Nole at Indian Wells 2020.
If you win the championship, Rafael Nadal will gain 640 points by reaching the semi-finals last season. Along with the existing score, the Spaniard will reach 10,490 points. However, that is only a necessary condition. Eligibility is required that Djokovic must not pass the quarterfinals of Indian Wells. Last season, Djokovic was eliminated in the third round and earned only 45 points from Indian Wells.
If this is repeated this year, Nadal will have a great opportunity. However, the Serbian tennis player will not let that easily happen. Therefore, the first ATP 1000 tournament of the year will be extremely worth watching.
