When the rankings are updated on May 22, Alcaraz will pass Novak Djokovic for the top spot, ensuring he will receive the No. 1 seeding at the French Open, which begins on May 28.
After defeating Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6-4, 6-1 in his Italian Open debut, Carlos Alcaraz will retake the No. 1 ranking.
In the first game of the match, Alcaraz double-faulted, giving Ramos-Vinolas a break of serve, but immediately recovered and used his well-hidden drop shot to set up the crucial break at the end of the first set.
