Rafael Nadal went from fifth to fourth in the new ATP rankings revealed on Monday, thanks to his 14th French Open championship and 22nd Grand Slam trophy, while Roland Garros runner-up Casper Ruud jumped to a career-high No 6.
Despite losing in the quarterfinals of the French Open 2022 against Rafael Nadal, World No. 1 Novak Djokovic stayed at the top of the rankings table with 8770 points.
Nadal has won both of this year’s major titles so far, including the Australian Open in January, but his ranking has suffered as a result of his lack of action in the last year. Because of that foot, he only played two matches from the end of the 2021 French Open and the end of last season, and he missed even more time this year due to that condition plus a rib injury.
Marin Cilic of Croatia has re-entered the Top 20 after a strong showing in Paris. On his way to the semi-finals, the 33-year-old stunned World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev. Medvedev remained in second place with 8160 points, while Alexander Zverev remained in third place with 7795 points.
Meanwhile, following her runner-up performance to No. 1 Iga Swiatek at the French Open, American teenager Coco Gauff ascended to a career-high No. 13 in the WTA rankings on Monday.
