After only two ATP 250 tournaments (Estoril and Munich), the ATP ranking changed very little on Monday, especially since most of the world leaders were at rest before the Masters 1000 in Madrid.
With only Alexander Zverev present on Bavarian clay and Denis Shapovalov on Estoril, the top 20 of the ATP ranking was generally at rest last week, ahead of Masters 1000 in Madrid which is held from May 2 to 9 at the Caja Magica. Suddenly, with the elimination of the German in the quarter-finals and the Canadian in the eighth, no change is to be reported among the top 20 in the world. On the other hand, it is then that things move a little.
Semi-finalist in Munich, Casper Ruud gains two places and finds himself in 2nd place, his best career ranking, less than 100 points from the top 20, which the Norwegian sees more than ever. On the other hand, the Chilean Cristian Garin moves away, after his defeat in the quarter in Portugal, which makes him lose three ranks. Winners respectively in Munich and Estoril, the Georgian Nikoloz Basilashvili (31st, +4) and the Spaniard Albert Ramos-Vinolas (37th, +9) logically take the opportunity to grab some places.
Good progress for Moutet
On the French side, Gaël Monfils remains the leader of the Blues. Although withdrawn from Madrid, the 15th in the world should not lose too many ranks, even if the margin is necessarily reduced with this new absence.. Behind, Ugo Humbert, Adrian Mannarino and Benoit Paire are all victims of the progression of Basilashvili, and all lose a place in the standings.
While the French in the top 100 almost all lose one or more ranks, the good progress of the week is to be credited to Corentin Moutet. Released in the quarter-finals in Estoril by the future winner, the native of Neuilly-sur-Seine gained six places and now finds himself Gilles Simon and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in 67th place. Also note, that Pierre-Hugues Herbert passes 85th, after his 8th final in Portugal.
