Djokovic Stays Top As Sinner Rises To Career-High World No. 3 In Latest ATP Rankings

Jannik Sinner was made to wait for at least 24 hours before he could officially become the new World No. 3.

That was because the Delray final between Taylor Fritz and Tommy Paul was affected by inclement weather and had to be postponed to Monday. Therefore, the ATP would only publish the new rankings following the conclusion of the last ATP final from the previous week.

Sinner motored to a new career-high ranking of No. 3, overtaking Daniil Medvedev, who dropped to fourth after his no-show in Rotterdam. The Italian succeeded Medvedev as the champion in the Netherlands, hoisting his second title of 2024 after winning the Australian Open.

Novak Djokovic continues his dominance of the World No. 1 ranking, posting an umpteenth week there. In second place is Carlos Alcaraz, who suffered a disappointing semifinal defeat in Buenos Aires and must now be feeling the pressure of staying in that position.

Alex de Minaur lost the Rotterdam final, but he ascended to a new best ranking of World No. 9. The Aussie's run, coupled with Fritz's title win Delray, knocked Stefanos Tsitsipas out of the world's Top 10 for the first time since 2019.

Tsitsipas' dip to 11th ends a remarkable streak of at least one player with a one-handed backhand being featured in the Top 10 of the ATP rankings since 1973. Alexander Bublik rises to 21st in the rankings, while fellow Kazakh Alexander Shevchenko climbs 12 places to 45th.

Miomir Kecmanovic drops out of the world's Top 50 (54th). The biggest mover in the Top 100 is Facundo Diaz Acosta, who sensationally bagged a maiden ATP title in his home city of Buenos Aires. The 23-year-old did not drop a set en route to winning the title at the Argentina Open.

Diaz Acosta soared 28 places to a new career-high mark of World No. 59. American Mackenzie McDonald dips to 61st, having not won a match in 2024. He has also not played since the Australian Open.

Federico Coria's fine run on the Golden Swing has earned him a place in the Top 100 again. The 31-year-old rose 21 places to 85th after his semifinal finish in Buenos Aires. You can track all your favorite players in the rankings by checking on our dedicated rankings page.
