Anyone knows what's going to happen?
If, for instance, no tournament is played until july, will Djokovic add 12 more weeks at #1 to his current 281 tally?

Hey, mate, what happened to your flag? You used to have an Italian one and now this? Have you fled the country?

Yes just for a few hours, as you know Slovenia borders with Italy.

But that said, do you have any info on how the cancellation of tournaments will impact ATP ranking?

No idea. I think as for now the ATP will deduct the IW points from last year but if the problem persists and more big tournaments are cancelled they may entertain the idea of freezing the rankings - but that's just my wild guess. This situation is completely new to ATP as well.

Thus the Swedish flag? Well, at least your flag choice is in line with your opinions.

Jesus Christ, let's talk about serious stuff.
I need to know if Djokovic will add weeks to his #1 tally, i want to bet a huge sum on him surpassing Sampras in the next few weeks.

The first ATP Tour Masters 1000 event of the tennis calendar, the Indian Wells 2020 has been cancelled due to a case of coronavirus locally. Subsequently, what will be the impact on the singles rankings following the cancellation of the tournament?

All the players will certainly drop their points gained at the last year’s Indian Wells Masters. The ATP world rankings work on a 52 weeks basis. Hence, the players drop their points after 52 weeks regardless of whether the tournament happens or not.

ATP ranking scenarios for the ‘Big Three’ after Indian Wells 2020

Novak Djokovic
The World No.1 Novak Djokovic earned only 45 points last year as he was defeated in the round of 32 against Philipp Kohlschreiber. Dropping only 45 points, Djokovic is confirmed to maintain the top spot for at least three more weeks. Hence, the Serb will extend his record of staying as World No.1 for 284 weeks.
However, this might be bad news for the 17-time Grand Slam champion as he was looking invincible this season. He could have added 955 points to his points tally and hence extend his gap with Nadal.

Rafael Nadal
World No.2 Rafael Nadal reached the semifinals of the Indian Wells Masters 2019. The Spaniard will hence drop 360 points in the ATP rankings. This will further widen his gap with the No.1 Djokovic. However, there will not be any change in rankings for Nadal and he will stay on the second spot.
Nadal had an opportunity to reclaim the world No.1 spot at the Indian Wells Masters 2020. The Mallorcan could replace his rival Djokovic at the top if he won the title and Djokovic didn’t reach the semi-final.

Roger Federer
The Swiss maestro will be the least affected of all players as he was already going to miss the event. The 20-time Grand Slam winner is currently recovering from knee surgery and had pulled out of the tournament earlier. The defending finalist will lose 600 points after the Indian Wells week. However, Roger Federer will still hold his No.4 spot in the ATP rankings.

Impact on other top 10 players in ATP rankings
The defending champion Dominic Thiem is the most affected player of all as the Austrian will drop 1,000 points and will not be able to defend any points this year. Though Thiem will remain on the third position, his gap with Federer has narrowed down to just 15 from a difference of 415 points.


However, to one’s surprise, there won’t be any movements in the top 10 of the ATP rankings. All the top 10 players will hold their rank as it is until 6th April.
Top 5 ATP rankings after Indian Wells 2020 week –
1. Djokovic – 10,175
2. Nadal – 9,490
3. Thiem – 6,045
4. Federer – 6,030
5. Medvedev – 5845

Correct me if I'm wrong, but they can't freeze the rankings because other tournaments are being played.
