ATP Rankings Report – Oct. 9, 2017


Belgium’s David Goffin bumps Pablo Carreño Busta out of the top 10 and re-enters it himself with his title at the Japan Open in Tokyo.

Meanwhile, despite being on the sidelines, Stan Wawrinka climbs back to No. 8 as Grigor Dimitrov drops to No. 9.


And another player who didn’t even play last week reaches a new milestone.

Canadian Denis Shapovalov gets bumped up one spot as twice-his-age Ivo Karlovic drops down three spots. And that’s enough to putthe 18-year-old at No. 50. So for the first time in his career, he’s a top-50 player.

Shapovalov received a wild card into the Masters 1000 tournament in Shanghai this week. He’s due to play Viktor Troicki in the first round on Tuesday.

On the Upswing

rankingsDiego Schwartzman (ARG): No. 29 ————-> No. 26 ** (a career high for one of the Davids on the ATP Tour)

Adrian Mannarino (FRA): No. 31 ————-> No. 29 (Tokyo final gets him back into the top-30. Now, he needs to find some more sticks).

Andrey Rublev (RUS): No. 39 ————-> No. 35** (another career high for the Russian, who exits his teenage years in 10 days)

Yuichi Sugita (JPN): No. 40 ————-> No. 36** (at 29, the Japanese player reaches another career high)

Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR): No. 44 ————-> No. 41

Ryan Harrison (USA): No. 52 ————-> No. 46

rankingsLeonardo Mayer (ARG): No. 54 ————-> No. 49

Evgeny Donskoy (RUS): No. 89 ————-> No. 74 (The Russian wins the Kaohsiung Challenger)

Filip Krajinovic (SRB): No. 95 ————-> No. 79** (The 25-year-old would be a serious contender for comeback player of the year were it not for that Federer guy; and he reaches a career high. Back in May, he stood at No. 291)

Maximilian Marterer (GER): No. 132 ————-> No. 108** (The 22-year-old German wins Monterrey, reaches a career high, and can seriously begin thinking about the main draw in Australia)

Cameron Norrie (GBR): No. 136 ————-> No. 111** (almost a carbon-copy story for Norrie, also 22 and just a few months out of college)

Bernard Tomic (AUS): No. 162 ————-> No. 144

(** = career high)

On the Downswing

rankingsSam Querrey (USA): No. 15 ————-> No. 17

Nick Kyrgios (AUS): No. 19 ————-> No. 21 (A title in Tokyo last year was replaced by a final in Beijing this year – 200 points he couldn’t defend)

Gael Monfils (FRA): No. 35 ————-> No. 42 (shocking to see him outside the top 40)

Jan-Lennard Struff (GER): No. 48 ————-> No. 58

Janko Tipsarevic (SRB): No. 79 ————-> No. 88 (after double hamstring surgery, Tipsarevic is gone for awhile)

Frances Tiafoe (USA): No. 74 ————-> No. 92 (Tiafoe won the Stockton Challenger a year ago, and had to try to defend at the ATP Tour level. That’s the challenge in the transition)

Marcos Baghdatis (CYP): No. 85 ————-> No. 95

Daniel Evans (GBR): No. 109 ————-> No. 135
