Rafael Nadal and Joao Sousa are going to face off in the 4th round in Wimbledon for the 3rd time of their career. This is their live rankings and projections.
Rafael Nadal’s live rankings
Rafa is currently ranked no.2 and has no chances to overtake Novak Djokovic as the new world no.1 at the end of Wimbledon since the Serbian has already 10,595 points (live) while if the Spaniard wins the Championships he will have 9,225 points.
However, the Mallorcan needs to be careful to a possible “assault” of his friend and rival Roger Federer that can take his place as the new world no.2 if Nadal loses in the 4th round and the Swiss reaches the final or in the eventuality that Roger wins the tournament.
Joao Sousa’s live rankings
The Portuguese managed to reach the second week in Wimbledon to give a significant boost to his ranking. In fact, Joao is already 14 places in the live rankings (no.55). Beating Rafa would make him to break in the top40 (38).
