ATP Rankings: Felix Auger-Aliassime on the up, Jack Draper passes Andy Murray to become British No 3
Felix Auger-Aliassime and Taylor Fritz swapped places in the top 10 of the ATP Rankings while further down the list Jack Draper moved up a few places to become the new British No 3.
Canadian No 1 Auger-Aliassime followed up last week’s Firenze Open title by winning the European Open on Sunday, beating Sebastian Korda in straight sets in the final to move up to No 9 while Fritz, who hasn’t played since winning the Japan Open, drops to No 10.
The rest of the top 10 is unchanged with Carlos Alcaraz still at No 1 on 6,730 points and the Spaniard is followed by Rafael Nadal, Casper Ruud, Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitispas, Alexander, Novak Djokovic and Andrey Rublev.
Outside of the top 10, British No 1 Cameron Norrie moves up one spot to No 13 while Matteo Berrettini climbs two places after finishing runner-up in Naples.
Further down Denis Shapovalov moves up one place to No 19 and Nick Kyrgios is back up to No 20 despite not playing.
Naples Cup champion Lorenzo Musetti is now at a career-high of No 22 while Stockholm Open winner Holger Rune, who defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Sweden final, is at No 24.
Outside the top 40, Jack Draper climbed to a new best of No 45 after reaching the second round of the European Open. It means he is now the British No 3 behind Norrie and Dan Evans with former world No 1 Andy Murray now No 4 at 49.
Both Draper and Murray will be in action at the Swiss Indoors as the former will take on world No 1 Alcaraz on Monday while Murray faces Russian Roman Safiullin on Tuesday. Norrie and Evans are playing at the Vienna Open.
There are plenty of ranking points on offer this week as there are two ATP 500 events – the Swiss Indoors in Basel and the Vienna Open in Austria.
Auger-Aliassime, Fritz, Hurkacz, Norrie and Berrettini are among those battling it out for the final spot at the ATP Finals in Turin.
