Ranking: Sinner is Top 10 ATP for the first time and Thiem leaves the elite

New promotion and jump to the elite. Jannick Sinner, barely 20 years old, took another leap in quality, after reaching the semifinals in Vienna, and managed to get into the Top 10 of the ATP world rankings for the first time, being the new No. 9 of the list. Meanwhile, Austrian Dominic Thiem left that lot after more than five years.

Precisely, this week there was only one change among the top 10 of the men’s circuit and it was that castling. Sinner, coming off another major climb after his title in Antwerp, has now climbed to the semifinals in Vienna and secured his place in the Top 10.

The 20-year-old improved two places and went from 11 to 9 in the ranking, to affirm himself as the No. 2 in Italy, now two places behind Matteo Berrettini.

On his own, Thiem, absent from the circuit due to injury, fell three places and went from 9th to 12th place, thus leaving the Top 10 for the first time since June 2016.

The list is still headed by Djokovic, escorted by Russian Daniil Medvedev and Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas completing the podium. The fourth, now with the best score, is the German Alexander Zverev, the new champion in Vienna.

Among Latin Americans, Diego Schwartzman remained the leader. The Argentine rose one place and is No. 16, while his bodyguard in the region, the Chilean Cristian Garin, dropped one place and ranks 18th in the world.

From a great climb in the Challenger, the Argentine Juan Manuel Cerúndolo, who had just entered the Top 100 for the first time, this week improved another nine places to reach the final in Lima 2 and was 85th.
