Medvedev returns to the top 10

Daniil Medvedev dropped out of the top 10 for the first time since July of 2019 after the Australian Open, but the 27-year-old has made a swift return after claiming the Rotterdam title on Sunday. Medvedev, who defeated Jannik Sinner 5-7, 6-2, 6-2 in Sunday’s final at the ABN Amro Open, rises three spots to No 8, pushing Hubert Hurkacz out of the top 10, to No 11.

For his efforts in Rotterdam, Sinner jumps two spots from 14 to 12.

Kokkinakis jumps 41

The biggest riser inside the top 100 is Thanasi Kokkinakis, who jumps 41 spots after claiming the Manama Challenger title. He comes it at No 100 this week.

Griekspoor and Varillas hit career-high rankings

Tallon Griekspoor rises to a career-high ranking of 40 after reaching the semi-finals at Rotterdam. The 26-year-old jumps 21 spots to blast through his previous career high of 44.

Peru’s Juan Pablo Varillas, the fifth man from his country to rank inside the top 100, comes in at a career-high No 81 after reaching the semi-finals in Buenos Aires. Varillas knocked off Dominic Thiem and Lorenzo Musetti in successive matches after qualifying in Argentina to reach his first career semi-final.

Mmoh better again

Michael Mmoh of the United States hits a new career-high at No 82 (+5). The American achieved his best Grand Slam result at the Australian Open, when he reached the third round as a lucky loser. Last week in Delray Beach he upset Denis Shapovalov en route to the quarter-finals.
