ATP Rankings and Brits Top 10

The main talking point from a British perspective is that Cameron Norrie has finally made his overdue top 10 debut with strong performances at Indian Wells and Miami. The Brit lost in the quarter-finals in his title defence in California to Carlos Alcaraz before losing in the fourth round in Miami to Casper Ruud. Norrie will now look to make further progress on his favourite surface in the European clay court swing.

Speaking of Alcaraz and Ruud their strong run to the Miami final, which Alcaraz won, secured them career-high rankings. Alcaraz is now eleven in the world while Ruud is up to seven in the ATP rankings. Both enter the clay season in fine form and will look to translate their confidence into more deep runs on the red dirt.

Finally on the ATP side Daniil Medvedev was unable to reclaim his world number one spot after losing in the Miami quarter-finals to Hubert Hurkacz with the Russian now out of action for up to two months due to hernia procedure. Novak Djokovic will enter the clay court season as the best player in the world having only played one tournament in 2022.

An honourable Brits mention goes to Jack Draper who’s latest challenger victory in St. Brieuc sees him at 124 in the world. The 20 year-old is now on the brink of the top 100 having won four challenger level titles this season.

Moving onto the women’s side, we have a new world number one after Ash Barty’s stunning retirement from tennis. That world number one is Iga Swiatek who comprehensively defeated Naomi Osaka to claim the sunshine double in Miami. Now heading into her favourite time of the year who can stop the Pole from dominating the tour.

Speaking of Osaka she is the biggest climber of the rankings having climbed 42 spots to 35 in the world after a very impressive run to the final in Miami. Now the three-time grand slam champion will look to overturn her bad fortunes on the clay as she aims for a seeded spot at Roland Garros.

In other ranking news Barbora Krejcikova and Paula Badosa were also back to their career high rankings to complete the top three in the world. While Emma Raducanu is at a new career high of world number 12 despite not getting a lot of wins on the board in 2022 and the Brit will hope that changes on the European clay courts.
