Carlos Alcaraz headlines the post-Wimbledon rankings as the Spaniard retained his world number one ranking at SW19. After losing the world number one spot to Novak Djokovic at Roland Garros, Alcaraz responded in fine fashion by regaining his place at the top of the ATP rankings by winning Queen’s Club. That meant things were set up perfectly for a thrilling Wimbledon final where it was all on the line as Alcaraz ended Djokovic’s ten year Centre Court unbeaten streak to retain his place as the best player in the world. Now Alcaraz will turn his attention to his US Open title defence in September.
As there were no ranking points to defend at Wimbledon there were bound to be ranking rises for those who did well at SW19 which included Mallorca champion Christopher Eubanks. Eubanks made a sensational run to a first Grand Slam quarter-final which included victory over Stefanos Tsitsipas as the American now rises to 31 in the world. There was also a six place rise for Matteo Berrettini who reached the second week at Wimbledon while Roman Safiullin climbed 49 places to number 43 in the world after his run to the Wimbledon quarter-finals.
Noticeable ranking falls included Nick Kyrgios falling down four places to 37 in the world as he withdrew from Wimbledon just a day before being scheduled to play with the Australian continuing to deal with injuries. There was also a 17 place fall for Pedro Cachin as he is now at 67 in the world while Zhizhen Zhang falls down 18 places to 70 in the world.
Finally the Brits maintained steady positions in the rankings as Cameron Norrie has found out the benefits of no ranking points to defend despite making the semi-finals at Wimbledon last year. Norrie was eliminated by Eubanks in the second round this year but remains at 13 in the world as he prepares to defend a heavy amount of ranking points in America. Dan Evans will defend semi-final points in Canada and his first round exit at Wimbledon was met with a one place rise up the rankings to 29 in the world. Meanwhile Liam Broady’s run to the third round of Wimbledon sees him climb up to 130 in the world as edges nearer to the world’s top 100.
The main story on the women’s side was the remarkable journey of Marketa Vondrousova as she claimed her first Grand Slam title by knocking out five seeded players including Ons Jabeur in the final. Vondrousova had only won four matches on grass before this year’s Wimbledon but the Czech Republican became the first unseeded player to win the women’s singles title with effortless tennis. As a result Vondrousova is into the top ten for the first time in her career as she now looks to continue the momentum into the US hard court swing.
Another big story from Wimbledon was the sensational run of Elina Svitolina who reached the semi-finals. The Ukrainian was aggressive and precise as she defeated four Grand Slam champions to reach the last four including beating world number one Iga Swiatek. As a result Svitolina earned a 49 place rise up the rankings to 27 in the world. There was also a 36 place rise for 17 year-old sensation Mirra Andreeva who is now 66 in the world as the future looks bright for the aggressive teen.
There wasn’t too many significant falls down the rankings with their being no ranking points defended although Karolina Pliskova is out of the world’s top 20 after a first round exit at Wimbledon while Petra Martic and Bernarda Pera moved out of the world’s top 30.
As for the Brits, Katie Boulter and Jodie Burrage have moved to career high rankings after positive performances over Wimbledon. Boulter reached the third round for the second consecutive year and was rewarded with a 16 place rise up the rankings at 73 in the world. Meanwhile Burrage is now into the world’s top 100 after winning her first ever match at Wimbledon as both players have a US Open main draw place in their sights.
