The best of his career: Nicolas Jarry’s new ATP ranking after being finalist in Rome

Despite the fall this Sunday against Alexander Zverev, the national tennis player will appear on Monday in his best position in the ATP ranking.

Nicolas Jarry was not able to party in Rome. The Chilean fell in the definition against the German Alexander Zverev at the Masters 1000 in Rome this Sunday. Despite the result, his performance in the Italian tournament will bring him a significant rise in the ATP rankings.

After reaching the final of the Italian tournament, the Prince went from 24th place, where he started the tournament, to 17th place, the best of his career.

The keys to Jarry’s rise

As the final approached, his coach, the Spaniard César Fábregas, gave the keys to his student’s rise. “I see Nico very well all week. He went less and more every game. He had trained at a very good level in the previous days. “I was ready to have a really good tournament,” he said.

The Iberian recognizes that the level of the Santiago native has improved throughout the tournament. “The first two matches, against the Italians (Stefano Napolitano and Alexandre Muller), were very hard. Also with the counter stands. Nico was able to hold on and continue. He had the attitude and mentality to get them out. Since the match against Muller, he has been looser, with aggressive and dominant tennis,” he added.

Along the same lines, Fábregas adds that it was Jarry’s mentality that kept him in the quarter-finals and semi-finals, when they were on the rise. “He played very good matches against Stefano Tsitsipas and Tommy Paul, who are great players. Nico was in good spirits, physically and with brutal determination. Thanks to this, we are in the final. We are very excited to be able to bring the cup home,” he noted.

“Zverev is a great player, who plays at a high level. But Nico is ready to face it and move the game forward. This Sunday, he will be in full force to compete and fight a complete battle. It is essential that you continue to impose your game and maintain the plan that you are going to propose. It’s a day to leave your skin on the pitch and squeeze every last drop out of it,” concluded the Spaniard.

Pending history

After passing the semi-finals, Jarry has already achieved his best performance in a Masters 1000. In fact, in his career he has five Challenger titles and two ATP titles. So far he has not been able to celebrate an ATP 500.

With the title that eluded him in Rome, a 25-year curse is extended. Until now, Chilean tennis had celebrated five M1000s, all achieved by Marcelo Ríos. El Chino was champion in Monte Carlo, Indian Wells, Miami, Rome and Hamburg. After Ríos there were finals, but the trophy never returned to the country again.
