Second Serve

 


Fabio Fognini has made history for Italy. The 32-year-old from San Remo, Italy has become the oldest man to crack the ATP’s Top 10 since 1973, and the first from Italy to rank in the Top 10 since Corrado Barazzutti in 1979.

"To reach the Top 10 is like the fulfilment of a dream. I see myself as a kid on a tennis court with a racquet bigger than me and I think, 'This kid has gone a long way'," Fognini told ATPTour.com. "Right now I am happy and I want to thank my family, my wife, my son and all the people who have always been close to me."

Also making a Top 10 debut is Russia’s Karen Khachanov. The 23-year-old comes in a spot ahead of Fognini at No.9 in the world thanks to a maiden major quarter-final at Roland Garros.


Other rankings risers include Stan Wawrinka, who rises nine spots to No.19 to make a return to the Top 20 for the first time since March of 2018.

Wawrinka’s buddy Benoit Paire rises ten spots to No.28, while Argentina’s Leonardo Mayer and Juan Ignacio Londero each jump 20 spots in the rankings based on round of 16 performances in Paris. Mayer comes in at No.48 while Londero comes in at No.58.
