Last week we had only two tournaments in Marrakech and Houston, but giving the fact that last year’s Monte Carlo points are already dropped, we have some interesting moves in the rankings.
Grigor had a disappointing campaign in Marrakech where he lost in the opener against Robredo. But with Monfils dropping five places (he lost 600 points because he was the runner-up in the Principality last year), Grigor is now ranked 11. The Bulgarian is just 25 points shy from world no.10 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
The American no.1 reached the semi-final in Houston to climb two places and be ranked no.14 (career high).
Kei took advantage of the fact that Nadal lost 1000 points (he is the defending champion in Monte Carlo); the Japanese gains two places and he is back to be the world no.5
After winning the title in Marrakech, Borna climbs 30 places to be the new world no.49. Much more to come.
The upcoming American reached the semi-final in Houston after beating John Isner in a passionate match that was solved after three tiebreaks. After his run in Texas, the youngster goes up 18 places in the rankings to be the new world no.73 (career high). More to come.
Here the full rankings.
