Carlos Alcaraz’s cancellation for the Australian Open 2023: a severe blow for the tournament – and of course for the youngster himself. Because Alcaraz is not only the reigning US Open champ, but also number 1 in world tennis.

And Carlos Alcaraz (ATP No. 1, currently 6,820 points) could have extended his lead in Melbourne: As is well known, 2,000 points are awarded for Grand Slam tournament victories (final: 1,200; semifinals: 720; quarterfinals: 360; round of 16: 180) . Alcaraz, on the other hand, only has 90 to defend, because last year it was already over in round 3. Conversely, this also means that he will not lose a lot of points and will have 6,730 points after the tournament.

His pursuers must therefore show results. only which ones?

Shouldn’t the Ruud, Tsitsipas and Djokovic fulfill their possibilities? Alcaraz would remain at the top despite his rejection.
