By Chris Oddo | @HetFanChild | Monday May 6, 2024

After reaching his first Masters 1000 final in Madrid this weekend, Felix Auger-Aliassime returns to the Top 20 for the first time since October last year. The Canadian is the biggest riser in the ATP top 100 in this week’s rankings (+15).

The 23-year-old Auger-Aliassime, a former world number 6, ends the week with his 200th career ATP victory and is back on track to be seeded at the Slams.

There was only one player emerging in the ATP top 10 this week: Andrei Rublev. The Russian claimed his second Masters 1000 title, jumping two places to No. 6, while Casper Ruud and Stefanos Tsitsipas each dropped one spot to No. 7 and No. 8 respectively.

Djokovic, still number 1

At the top of the rankings, Novak Djokovic remains 1130 points ahead of Jannik Sinner. The Serbian legend enters a record 423rd week at the top of the WTA rankings.

Djokovic is 12th in the Race to Turin standings but will be hoping to pick up some big points this week in Rome, where he is the top seed, and later this month at Roland-Garros, where he will bid for a record 25th major title.

Navone, Tabilo Career Heights

Argentina’s Mariano Navone and Chile’s Alejandro Tabilo each claimed the challenger title and reached new ranking milestones this week. Navone rises ten places after winning the Cagliari title on Sunday. The 23-year-old was only outside the Top 100 in February.

The 26-year-old Tabilo, who won his first title in Auckland in January, won the Aix-En-Provence Challenger and jumps six places to a career-high 32.
