Second Serve


By Chris Oddo | @TheFanChild | Monday September 14, 2020

Andrey Rublev is on the cusp of a Top-10 debut after reaching the US Open quarterfinals and climbing to a career-high ranking of No.12 in the world (from 14). The Russian, who is 19-5 on the season with two titles, bowed out to Daniil Medvedev at the US Open quarterfinals last week.

Alejandro Davidovich Fokina was the biggest mover inside the Top 100. The 21-year-old Spaniard reached the round of 16 at the US Open on his debut and comes in at a career-high ranking of 70 this week.

Vasek Pospisil, who also reached the round of 16 for the first time at the US Open, rises 21 spots to 73 in the ATP ranking, his highest ranking since October of 2018.
