Tipsarevic Climbs The Rankings

WEEK: 04.24.2017

The mover of the week is Janko Tipsarevic.  It has been a slow climb back up the rankings after injury derailed his career. He was off the Tour from the end of the 2013 season until April of the 2015 season.  He won a Challenger tournament over the weekend to gain some much needed points ahead of the Roland Garros’ draw.  In 2012 he was ranked as high as number 8, so he has the game; the question is whether his body will allow him to climb to such lofty heights once again?  He will keep fighting but the field of opponents has evolved once more and it will not be easy for the Serbian to recapture his glory days.

PLAYERS (within  the top 100) SPOTS MOVED NEW RANK
Janko Tipsarevic (SRB) UP  18 71
Frances Tiafoe (USA) UP  15 72              (CAREER HIGH)
Federico Delbonis (ARG) DOWN  14 98
Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR) DOWN  14 82
Ernesto Escobedo (USA) DOWN  12 85
Qiang Wang (CHN) UP  12 56              (CAREER HIGH)
Laura Siegemund (GER) DOWN  12 49

ATP Tour:  David Goffin is back in the top ten at #10, replacing Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.  Rafael Nadal and Kei Nishikori traded positions, #5 and #7 respectively.  The remaining top ten members stayed the same and maintained their positions from last week.


WTA Tour: the top ten members remained the same from last week; however, despite not playing a tournament since the Australian Open, Serena Williams has regained the number one ranking and Angelique Kerber has dropped to number two.  This will be a short-lived position since Williams will be off the Tour for the rest of the season and Kerber is bound to gain lots of points to surpass her once again.
