Second Serve


By Chris Oddo | @TheFanChild | Monday August 14, 2023

Holger Rune is a Top 5 player and Jannik Sinner is at a career-high No.6 in Monday’s ATP rankings.

The Dane and Italian each leapfrogged Casper Ruud, who drops to No.7 in the post-Toronto ATP rankings.

For those wondering if the new generation is upon us in men’s tennis, take note of the fact that there are two 20-year-old’s inside the ATP’s Top 5, and one half of the ATP’s top six is 21 or younger today.

Sinner, who won his maiden Masters 1000 title on Sunday in Toronto is just 175 points back of Rune in the rankings–but he is 1,000 points clear of Rune in the ATP’s Race to Milan rankings.

Career High for De Minaur and Paul

Toronto proved happy hunting ground for Alex de Minaur, who reached his first Masters final, and Tommy Paul, who earned his first win over a reigning No.1 by defeating Carlos Alcaraz en route to the semis.

De Minaur rises six spots to a career-high of 13; Paul rises one spot to career best 13.

Alejandro Davidovich Fokina also clicked a new high, rising 14 spots to a career-high 23 thanks to his trip to a maiden Masters semifinal in Toronto.

Alcaraz Stays on Top

20-year-old Alcaraz remains at No.1 this week, entering his 33rd week at the ATP's top-ranked player. The Spaniard leads Novak Djokovic by 600 points in the 52-week rankings, and 910 points in the Race to Milan standings.

Other Risers

The biggest riser inside the Top 50 was American Mackenzie McDonald, who defeated Andrey Rublev en route to the last eight at Toronto. The biggest riser inside the Top 100 was Taro Daniel, who qualified and reached round three in Canada.

Here are some other notable risers inside the Top 100:

No. 36 Andy Murray, +4
No. 43 Mackenzie McDonald, +16 (Career High)
No. 48 Aleksandar Vukic, +14 (Career High)
No. 54 Marcos Giron, +16
