Del Potro rose two spots to third place in the ATP Race To London by beating the likes of John Isner and Rafael Nadal, prior to the final against Novak Djokovic. Del Potro has a 43-11 record on the season, which includes two titles at the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presentado por HSBC (d. Anderson) and his first at ATP World Tour Masters 1000-level at the BNP Paribas Open (d. Federer).
Del Potro is attempting to qualify for the fifth time overall - and first time since 2013 - and join Nadal, Djokovic and Roger Federer at the season finale.
No. 2 Novak Djokovic, +1
Djokovic captured his 14th Grand Slam championship crown (tied third with Pete Sampras in the all-time list), and is now just three titles from second-placed Nadal (17), with his third US Open trophy. The 31-year-old, who was in 15th place in the ATP Race To London on 2 July, is now up to second and 1,035 points behind Nadal (7,480), ensuring a potential battle royale for the 2018 year-end No. 1 honour.
No. 12 David Goffin, +5
The Belgian jumped five places to 12th in the battle for a spot at the season finale, following a run to the US Open fourth round (l. to Cilic). Last year’s runner-up in London (l. to Dimitrov) went 9-3 on the North American hard-court swing.
No. 15 Milos Raonic, +4
The Canadian, a qualifier at the Nitto ATP Finals in 2014 and 2016, continued his return to top form by advancing to the fourth round in the Big Apple, beating Stan Wawrinka in the third round before falling to John Isner. He moved up four spots to 15th.
No. 16 Borna Coric, +4
The 21-year-old Croatian improved to 29-15 on the season after reaching the fourth round of a Grand Slam championship for the first time, losing to Del Potro.
