MOVER OF THE WEEK: Rafael Nadal
It was not a big move in terms of number, but it was a significant move in terms of positioning for the big and major tournaments. This week, the mover of the week honors go to Rafael Nadal. Can he hold on to the number two spot until the seedings are announced for Roland Garros?
The difference between the number two and three ranking positions is only one hundred and ten  points.
- If Medvedev plays any tournaments in the next few weeks and goes far enough in the draws to accumulate enough points, he can displace Nadal. That would knock Nadal out of the second seed position at Roland Garros.
- Nadal can secure the number two seeded position in Paris by winning the Mutua Madrid title or at least going far in the draw. Nadal does not have any points to defend in Madrid. The last time he played there was in 2019 and he lost in the semifinals.
