Jordan Thompson, twenty-two year Australian, is the mover of the week. He climbed up the rankings by winning the Anning Challenger in China over the weekend. He has been working furiously behind the scenes on the Challenger Tour to improve his ranking and he is doing as great a job this season as he did last season. In addition to this title, he has made it to three semifinals, one quarterfinal and won a second title on the circuit this season. I have yet to see him play; however, now that he’s in the top 100 I expect to see him as direct entry into the main draw of the bigger tournaments.

Milos Raonic is back in the top ten, replacing Richard Gasquet. The remaining top nine stayed the same and in the same positions on the ATP Tour.
The top 10 members on the WTA Tour stayed the same with no change in their positions from last week.
SPECIAL MENTION: Alexander Zverev (GER) is at an all-time career high this week at 43.
