Another week is over on the ATP Tour and that means that players can check their progress in the rankings once again.

As every Monday, the new ATP Rankings were released and world no. 1, Novak Djokovic started already his 379th week as the highest-ranked player in the world. He's closely followed by Carlos Alcaraz, who is only 380 points behind him and can challenge for the Serb's top spot very soon.

Behind the two, Stefanos Tsitsipas sits in the third position with Casper Ruud ranked 4th. While the Greek and Norwegian are almost 1000 points behind the second Alcaraz and almost 2000 points ahead of the fifth Taylor Fritz, only 145 separates them as the battle for the third position is on.

Taylor Fritz recently became the highest-ranked American since 2009 as he reached the fifth spot, but now he's close to losing it. After winning the 2023 Dubai Championships, Daniil Medvedev jumped to the 6th spot and he is now only 20 points behind the American, who has 1000 points to defend at the upcoming 2023 BNP Paribas Open Indian Wells.

Defeated finalist from Dubai, Andrey Rublev, dropped to the 7th place but he still improved his points total as he now has 3660 points. The eighth player in the ATP Rankings, Holger Rune, reached his new career high after playing semifinals in Acapulco.

On the other hand, Rafael Nadal is ranked lowest in years as he dropped already to the ninth and he'll soon exit the Top 10 for the first time since he entered it in 2005. Felix Auger-Aliassime is the last player in the Top 10 with 3245 points.

The most significant moves were made by Alex de Minaur, who won the 2023 Mexican Open, and his final opponent, Tommy Paul. The Australian moved by four places to 18th and his American opponent closely follows him with the same improvement to the 19th spot.

Nicolas Jarry, the 2023 Chile Open Santiago champion, made the biggest move this week. The Chilean moved by 35 places to 52nd and his final opponent, Tomas Martin Etcheverry reached his new career high as he moved by 15 places to 61st.
