Carlos Alcaraz replaced Novak Djokovic as World No. 1 in the latest ATP Rankings. Daniil Medvedev’s Italian Open title moved him up to No. 2 ahead of the French Open 2023 with Novak dropping to third place. The Spaniard’s second-round exit in the Italian Open was enough for him to get to the top of the rankings.
Holger Rune also moved up one place to No.6 replacing Andrey Rublev after his impressive final finish at the Italian Open. The Serb’s quarter-finals loss in Rome led to his drop to No.3. However, it is to be noted that Novak Djokovic has spent most weeks at No. 1 spot than anyone in the history of the sport’s computerized rankings.
The rest of the top 10 features Casper Ruud at No. 4, Stefanos Tsitispas at five, Andrey Rublev at seven, Jannik Sinner at eight, Taylor Fritz at nine, and Felix Auger-Aliassime at 10. Ugo Humbert and Tomas Etcheverry improved a lot as both moved up 12 and 15 spot in the rankings respectively. The biggest mover was Yannick Hanfmann who is up 37 spots following an impressive week in Rome.
Australia’s Aleksandar Vukic made his top 100 debut (World No. 95) after his runner-up finish at an ATP Challenger event in Oeiros (Portugal) helped him jump 32 spots. India’s Rohan Boppana and his teammate Mathew Ebden returned to the top 10 after seven years after their second-round exit in Rome.
In the women’s rankings, Iga Swiatek, the defending champion in Paris, remained at No. 1 in the WTA rankings, which she has led for more than a year. Swiatek is followed by Aryna Sabalenka at No. 2. Elena Rybakina jumped two spots to career-best No.4 after her Italian Open title. Yanina Wickmayer jumped 51 spots to join the top 150 players at No.140. Taylor Townsend was the biggest mover as she jumped 60 places and is at No.108.
