Colombians Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah lead the 2019 ATP Doubles Team Rankings with 150 days until the start of the Nitto ATP Finals, to be held at The O2 in London from 10-17 November.

But the battle for the other seven team berths is intense as only 640 points separates second-placed Germans Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies (2,475), the Roland Garros champions, and the team they beat in the Paris final, ninth-placed French team Jeremy Chardy and Fabrice Martin (1,835).

Cabal and Farah, who reached the semi-finals at last year’s season finale, have amassed 3,000 points so far this year, centred largely on capturing their second ATP Masters 1000 crown at the Internazionali BNL d'Italia (d. Klaasen/Venus) and a title at the 500-level Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell (d. Murray/Soares).

Krawietz and Mies soared up 30 spots in the latest 2019 year-to-date standings after winning their second tour-level title of the year (also New York Open in February) in Paris, which represents their first Grand Slam championship crown. The pair also lifted four ATP Challenger Tour doubles trophies in the first five months of the year and lead third-place Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan (2,330) by 145 points.

The Bryan twins, the four-time former Nitto ATP Finals champions, are bidding to qualify for the 16th time (since 2001). Since Bob returned from a right hip injury that required surgery, the 41-year-olds have won their fifth Delray Beach Open presented by title (d. Skupski) and their sixth Miami Open presented by Itau (d. Koolhof/Tsitsipas) title.

Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau moved up two spots to fourth in the ATP Doubles Team Rankings on 2,110 points as a result of reaching the Roland Garros quarter-finals (l. to Pella/Schwartzman). The 2015 Nitto ATP Finals winners picked up their second Masters 1000 title last month at the Mutua Madrid Open (d. Schwartzman/Thiem).

Pierre-Hugues Herbert, who is currently focusing on his singles career, and Nicolas Mahut are in fifth position (2,090), based largely on their Australian Open title run that saw them complete the career doubles Grand Slam in January. Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic are in sixth on 1,960 points, but only 30 points separate last year’s World No. 1 team and seventh-placed Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo (1,950) and eighth-placed two-time former Nitto ATP Finals titlists Henri Kontinen and John Peers (1,920).

Chardy and Martin, winners of two ATP Tour titles this year at the Open 13 Provence (d. McLachlan/Middelkoop) and the Millennium Estoril Open (d. Bambridge/O’Mara), jumped 15 places after their Roland Garros final run and are 85 points behind Kontinen and Peers, who sit in the final automatic qualification spot.
