The latest ups and downs in the ATP rankings

The results following one of the most exciting majors, sees Rafa Nadal slip out of the top five while the other two members of the Big Three hang on to their positions, with Novak Djokovic, despite losing the US Open final, still safely ensconced at the top and Roger Federer secure in ninth place.

Nadal has not played since losing to Djokovic in the French Open semi-finals due to a foot injury and now sits sixth in the rankings while his young Spanish compatriot and protégé, teenager Carlos Alcaraz, who many believe will be Nadal’s successor and first round vanquisher of Cameron Norrie at Flushing Meadows, has risen 17 places to 38.

Alcaraz shone at the US Open where he showed he is more than likely to be a force to be reckoned with, becoming the youngest US Open men’s quarter-finalist in 58 years but a thigh injury brought his run to an end and he retired from his last-eight clash with Canada’s Felix Auger-Aliassime.

Auger-Aliassime climbs four spots to 11th while there are eye-catching rises for two others who performed above expectations by reaching the quarter-finals of the final Grand Slam of the year — South African Lloyd Harris gains 15 places to lie in 31st spot and Dutch qualifier Botic van de Zandschulp moves up 55 spots to 62nd.

The recently installed US Champion, Daniil Medvedev remains in situ at No.2.

However Medvedev’s predecessor as US Open champion, Dominic Thiem, who was unable to defend his title by a wrist injury, is another to slide down the rankings, from six to eight.


Daniel Evans retains his place as British No.1

Norrie also moves up but only by one spot to 28 while Kyle Edmund and Andy Murray remain just outside the top hundred, 106 and 116 respectively.
