ATP Tour Rankings Report – Sept. 25, 2017


The top guns still are in that netherworld between the US Open and the big Asian tournaments.

Most of the healthy ones took part in the Laver Cup in Prague over the weekend.


But of course, that special event doesn’t offer any ATP Tour ranking points.

So it was a good opportunity for the rank and file to make hay while their sun shines.

Germany’s Peter Gojowczyk maximized as he earned his first ATP Tour title in Metz, France. And Bosnia’s Damir Dzumhur did the same in St. Petersburg.

Gojowczyk’s ranking – which ran between No. 100 and No. 300 for most of the last six years, rose to a career-best No. 66.

On the Upswing

rankingsGrigor Dimitrov (BUL): No. 9 —————-> No. 8 (Dimitrov – a Team 8 client – didn’t play the Laver Cup. But he jumps one spot because of Wawrinka’s failure to defend last year’s St. Petersburg points)

Fabio Fognini (ITA): No. 29 —————-> No. 27 (Finalist in St. Petersburg)

Damir Dzumhur (BIH): No. 55 —————-> No. 40** (First career title in St. Petersburg, and a career high)

Jan-Lennard Struff (GER): No. 54 —————-> No. 47

Peter Gojowczyk (GER): No. 95 —————-> No. 66** (First Tour title, and a career high)

Cedrik-Marcel Stebe (GER): No. 90 —————-> No. 79

Peter Polansky (CAN): No. 128 —————-> No. 122

Kenny De Schepper (FRA): No. 181 —————-> No. 161

Liam Broady (GBR): No. 242 —————-> No. 204

** = career high


On the Downswing

rankingsStan Wawrinka (SUI): No. 8 —————-> No. 9 (Wawrinka played St. Petersburg a year ago, but obviously missed it this time around.

Hyeon Chung (KOR): No. 46 —————-> No. 57

Julien Benneteau (FRA): No. 94 —————-> No. 110
