Jannik Sinner confirms himself as n.1 blue in the new Pepperstone ATP Rankings. The South Tyrolean thanks to the quarter-finals reached at the US Open climbs two positions, finishing at n.11. Matteo Berrettini it loses its place, new n.15 in the world, while it is stable at n.30 Lorenzo Musetti. Fabio Fognini gains five positions, climbing to n.55, while Lorenzo Sonego goes down a step, passing to n.64. The most interesting movements are those of the Azzurri NextGen who, thanks to the excellent results in the challenger tournaments, climb many positions reaching their best ranking. Francesco Passaro climbs to n.125 (+21 places), Luca Nardi to position n.142 (+33), Matteo Arnaldi is n.161 (+26) and Francesco Maestrelli, in these days sparring for the Davis Cup blues in Bologna , enters the ATP top 200 for the first time, settling at n.180 (+25).

As for the Pepperstone ATP Rankings, September 12, 2022 marks a historic date: Spanish Carlos Alcaraz, winning his first Slam title at the US Open at 19 years, 4 months and 6 days, he becomes the youngest # 1 in the world rankings since the rankings were compiled on the computer (1973). The results of the US Major caused a real revolution at the top of the ranking. Alcaraz climbs to the throne of world tennis, climbing three positions from # 4, while former # 1 Daniil Medvedev, having failed to defend last year’s victory at Flushing Meadows, slips to fourth, overtaken by both the US Open finalist 2022 Casper Ruud, new n.2 (to the best ranking with a remarkable leap of five places) than from Rafael Nadal, n.3. The German Alexander Zverev, absent in New York, drops to number 5.
Stefanos Tsitsipas (# 6) and Novak Djokovic (# 7) give up a position, while the British Cameron Norrie earns eighth place, scoring his best ranking. Andrey Rublev returns to the top 10 in ninth place (plus two compared to the last pre US Open ranking) and the Polish Hubert Hurkacz remains stable in tenth place. The most important leap in the new ranking is that of Karen Khachanov: thanks to the semifinal at the US Open he goes from 31st to 18th position. It is also best ranking for Frances Tiafoe, a real surprise of the tournament, for the first time among the best twenty in the world (n.19). Australian Nick Kyrgios closes the top 20: plus five places for him after the New York Grand Slam.

Several changes in the women’s world rankings after the latest WTA update published at the conclusion of the US Open. As for the Italian players, three new “best” (Lucia Bronzetti, Elisabetta Cocciaretto, Nuria Brancaccio)a decisive step forward in terms of points (Lucrezia Stefanini) and a new entry among the top ten Italians in the ranking (Brancaccio, finalist in the WTA 125 in Bari, who climbs 133 places in one fell swoop).
They are always guided by Martina Trevisan, who is confirmed at number 27, three points off her record (24) reached on 18 July. The 28-year-old Tuscan left-handed – out in the first round at Flushing Meadows thanks to the muscle strain in her left thigh that had already forced her to retire in the second round in Cleveland – in this 2022 she won her first WTA trophy on the clay of Rabat and has reached the semifinals at Roland Garros, best career result in a Grand Slam.
Jasmine Paolini, number 55 WTA, climbs a step, while Lucia Bronzetti, now in 57th place, gains two positions, who again touches her personal best.
On the other hand, both Camila Giorgi, who dates back to number 61, and Elisabetta Cocciaretto, who further tweaks her “best” by going to seat in armchair n.93, gain six positions: the 21-year-old from Fermo had entered the top for the first time in her career 100 last August 22 and in New York she was the only Italian – between men and women – to overcome the qualifications.

In the top 10 of the WTA ranking, absolute certainty is represented by the undisputed leader, the Polish Iga Swiatek, queen of New York (third Slam in career): she has more than double the points of the direct pursuer, the Tunisian Ons Jabeur who, thanks to the final at the US Open, second place in the world resumes and is now followed by Estonian Anett Kontaveit.
Two “new-entries”: the American Coco Gauff, who thanks to the quarterfinals in New York, makes her entry for the first time in her career in the top ten, positioning herself at number eight, and the French Caroline Garcia, semifinalist, who grabs the tenth chair: for the 28-year-old from Sain-Germain-en-Laye it is a return to the top at the end of a summer season also illuminated by success in Cincinnati. For the moment, the Russian Daria Kasatkina and the Spanish Garbine Muguruza greet the world elite.
