The rankings report this week starts with the most in-form player this season in the form of Jannik Sinner. The Italian bounced back from a semi-final defeat to Carlos Alcaraz in Indian Wells by claiming the title in Miami. The Italian defeated an red-hot Grigor Dimitrov convincingly in the final which means Sinner is now the new world number two, overtaking Alcaraz in the rankings. Now Sinner focuses on the clay court season with three titles to his name as he looks to close down Novak Djokovic at the top of the ATP rankings.

As for Dimitrov, the Bulgarian achieved another landmark week as he defeated three top ten players on his way to a second Masters 1000 final in the space of four months. Another final means Dimitrov is back into the world’s top ten for the first time in six years as he is gradually getting back to his best tennis.

In other ranking moves there were big boosts for Miami quarter-finalist Fabian Maroszan and Tomas Machac. Maroszan is up to 19 places to 38 in the world in a run that saw him defeat Holger Rune on his way to the last eight. Meanwhile Machac climbed up 17 places to 43 in the world as he continued his incredible start to the season. Notable falls down the rankings saw Alex De Minaur exit the world’s top ten while Emil Ruusuvuori fell down 17 places to 65 in the world.

It was a positive week for Andy Murray who won back-to-back matches for the first time since last August as the Brit climbed up three places to 59 in the world but the former world number one is likely to be out for the majority of the clay court season. There was also steady rises for Jack Draper and Dan Evans while Liam Broady fell down the rankings by 17 places to 148 in the world.
