After a week marked by the Monte-Carlo Masters 1000, Andrey Rublev won a rank in the ATP ranking updated on Monday and now overtakes Roger Federer. Among the French, following his performances in the Principality, Lucas Pouille made good progress during the week.
Before the ATP 500 Barcelona and ATP 250 Belgrade tournaments, the Masters 1000 in Monte-Carlo did not greatly upset the hierarchy. Indeed, at the end of the first big clay tournament of the season, and despite some surprises such as the early eliminations of Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, only one change took place in the top 10 of the ATP ranking. Indeed, finalist in the Principality, the Russian Andrey Rublev passes 7th and therefore overtakes the Swiss Roger Federer, which should only play two tournaments on the ocher surface this season (Geneva and Roland-Garros).
On the other hand, the top 20 has undergone some modifications, with in particular the Belgian David Goffin moved from 15th to 12th place, the Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta and the Canadian Denis Shapovalov notably losing one rank as a result.
Nice jump in the standings for Pouille
The other big change concerns the Italian Fabio Fognini, winner of the last edition in Monte-Carlo in 2019 and eliminated in the quarter-finals this year, who tumbles nine places and finds himself 27th. The main beneficiary of this is another Italian in the person of Jannik Sinner. At 19, the native of San Candido joined the top 20 for the first time in his young career with this 19th place.
Also author of a good week in Monte-Carlo, the Briton Dan Evans gained seven places and is now 26th. On the side of the French, absent from the Masters 1000, Gaël Monfils loses another rank (15th), while Pouille wins 14 and passes 72nd at ATP, following his 8th final on the Rock. On the other hand, Pierre-Hugues Herbert fell eight places.
