Novak Djokovic, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Casper Ruud are among the top favourites to win the current Australian Open. Since an injured Carlos Alcaraz had to skip the first slam of the year, Djokovic, Tsitsipas, and Ruud have the opportunity to snatch the top spot of the ranking from the Spanish player.
Novak Djokovic and Stefanos Tsitsipas can become world number 1 only if they win the Australian Open. Casper Ruud can be the leader of the ATP Rankings if he wins the tournament in Melbourne or he is the runner-up, but not to Djokovic and Tsitsipas.
These are the latest live rankings. (Click here for the latest updates).
