Following the conclusion of Roland Garros, the ATP rankings saw massive changes, with Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz emerging as the biggest winners.

Sinner officially takes control of the men's rankings in a historic first for Italy with 9525 points. The 22-year-old is the new World No. 1, ending Novak Djokoivc's 428-week reign at the top. He was a semifinalist at the clay-court Grand Slam.

Djokovic's withdrawal from the French Open after the fourth round because of a knee injury has seen him slip to third in the fresh rankings, and he could face a further rankings slide if he doesn't play at Wimbledon.

Alcaraz, meanwhile, motors into the top two and above Djokovic with 8580 points. He is the 2024 Roland Garros champion after defeating Alexander Zverev in five sets in Sunday's final.

Zverev, for his part, added 580 points to his tally and has a cushion of 400 points on fifth-placed Daniil Medvedev. The other big change in the Top 10 is Alex de Minaur's rise to ninth after becoming the first Australian man in 20 years to reach the Roland Garros quarterfinals.

Stefanos Tsitsipas, therefore, dips to 11th. Grigor Dimitrov is now the only one-hander in the Top 10. Tommy Paul (13th) can become the new American No. 1 in the coming weeks, with Taylor Fritz set for a lengthy absence because of a back injury.

Five Italian men are ranked inside the Top 50, with Flavio Cobolli making his debut (50th) this week. Corentin Moutet rose 23 places to 56th. India's Sumit Nagal soared to a career-high ranking of No. 77 after winning the Heilbronn Challenger last Sunday.

Zizou Bergs is another player with a career-best ranking (81st). He reached the third round in Paris as a qualifier and accounted for a shock win over in-form Alejandro Tabilo.

Croatia's Borna Coric fell 15 places to 88th, while former World No. 1 Andy Murray is on the verge of a Top 100 exit (97th) after missing his title defense in Surbiton. Be sure to track all your favorite players by checking our dedicated rankings page after Roland Garros.
