The top 10 of the ATP Rankings is unchanged ahead of Wimbledon with Jannik Sinner starting his first Grand Slam at the top, but there was a lot of movement further down the rankings.

Following his rise to No 1 after the French Open, Sinner was always assured of starting Wimbledon at No 1 in the rankings and his title run at Halle Open a fortnight ago means he will stay there after the tournament irrespective of how he performs at the grass-court Grand Slam.

The Italian is followed by Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz, Alexander Zverev and Daniil Medvedev and the four will battle it out for the No 2 position at the All England Club.

Andrey Rublev, Hubert Hurkacz, Casper Ruud, Alex de Minaur and Grigor Dimitrov complete the top 10 while just below them Taylor Fritz moved up one place to No 12 on the back of winning a third Eastbourne title.

Fritz will start Wimbledon as the American No 1 again as Tommy Paul moved down one spot while Ben Shelton sits at No 14.

There is one new entry in the top 20 as Alejandro Tabilo jumped five places to move to a career-high No 19 after becoming the first Chilean player to win a grass-court title with his success coming at the Mallorca Championships.

He is one of two Chileans in the top 20 with Nicolas Jarry sitting at No 20.

Outside the top 20, British No 1 Jack Draper will start his home Grand Slam at a career-high of No 28 after moving up one spot while Gael Monfils moves up seven places to No 33.

Australia’s Max Purcell was one of the big winners as he surged 26 places to No 68 after finishing runner-up to Fritz.

Outside the top 100 there was a 23-spot jump for Great Britain’s Billy Harris as he now sits at a career-high of No 116 after his run to the semi-final in Eastbourne. Harris was outside the top 200 at the beginning of May and at No 348 at the same time last year.

American Christopher Eubanks was the big loser as he dropped 20 places to No 62 after he was unable to defend his Mallorca title. The bad news for Eubanks is he has 360 points to defend at Wimbledon after reaching the quarter-final last year.
