It’s obviously the performance of the week and it’s reflected in the world rankings. Winner 7-6, 6-2 over Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final of the Cincinnati Masters 1000, Borna Coric made a phenomenal jump of 123 places and moved up to 29th at the ATP, his best rank since May 10, 2021. This perf secures him a seeded position at the US Open ( August 29-September 11). Former 12th in the world (in November 2018), the Croatian had tumbled to 278th place last May, following serious health problems (operation on the right shoulder, followed by a long absence from the circuit).
Tsitsipas gains two places (5th), to the detriment of Casper Ruud, but it is above all the progress of Félix Auger-Aliassime and Cameron Norrie that deserves to be noted. Respectively 8th and 9th in the world, the Canadian and the Briton thus obtained the best ranking of their careers. Daniil Medvedev retains his world number one spot.
Eight Frenchmen emerge in the top 100. Gaël Monfils (25th) loses three ranks but the performance of the week goes to Constant Lestienne. Winner of the challenger tournament in Vancouver (beating Arthur Rinderknech in the final), he moved up 19 ranks and moved up to 75th in the world – obviously his best result. Benjamin Bonzi and Adrian Mannarino lost two places (50th and 65th), Hugo Gaston three (71st), Quentin Halys five (76th) and Richard Gasquet seven (91st). Apart from Lestienne, only Rinderknech is gaining ground (58th, +6).
