ATPTour.com looks at the movers of the week in the Race following a three-tournament week on Tour.
No. 12 Jannik Sinner, +1
The Italian is up to 12th in the Pepperstone ATP Live Race To Turin after he enjoyed a run to the semi-finals at the Sofia Open. The 21-year-old, who competed at the Nitto ATP Finals last year as an alternate, defeated Nuno Borges and Aleksandar Vukic before he was forced to retire in the third set against #NextGenATP Dane Holger Rune.
No. 15 Novak Djokovic
The 35-year-old further boosted his Turin hopes at the Tel Aviv Watergen Open, where he clinched his third tour-level crown of the season. Djokovic defeated Marin Cilic in the final and did not drop a set in a dominant run at the ATP 250 event. If 15th-placed Djokovic, this year's Wimbledon champion, stays within the Top 20 in the Race if will qualify for the Nitto ATP Finals.
