If Djoker is the number to catch (we are not talking about Tsits getting to #2), then the points for anybody else simply do not matter. Just like any race, yes you have to pass everybody, but the goal is to pass the number one guy, so he sets the pace.Don't be a Nadal hater. Djokovic, Nadal, Federer and even Thiem are blocking Tsitsipas from reaching the #1, as they are all over him in ATP points. Even the most hardcore Federer fans can see it. It is completely untrue that only Djokovic is stopping Tsitsipas from reaching the #1.
