MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP Rankings Report – As of July 11, 2022

WIMBLEDON – Hail the seven-time Wimbledon champion, as Novak Djokovic’s reward is to drop to No. 7 in the world.

But the big number for him is 21: he has 21 majors now, because Wimbledon counts as one, even with no ranking points dispensed.

That puts him one behind Rafael Nadal, and one ahead of Roger Federer.

The question for him is: when is he going to play again? The North American summer in Montreal, Cincinnati and the US Open, for now, looks out of the question.

But things can change in a hurry.

ON THE UPSWING

Rafael Nadal (ESP): No. 4 =======> No. 3 (Nadal drops 360 points, but he’s still so far ahead of the next tranche in the rankings that he continues to have a cushion).

Jannik Sinner (ITA): No. 13 =======> No. 10 (He lost in the quarterfinals to Djokovic, after being up two sets to none. But he doesn’t drop any points from 2021, so he’s golden).

Emil Ruusuvuori (FIN): No. 49 =======> No. 43 (Ruusuvuori lost in the second round. But he had no points to lose from 2021).

Brandon Nakashima (USA): No. 56 =======> No. 49 (Nakashima made the fourth round, losing to Kyrgios. But he moves up because he was only defending 15 points. It puts him into the top 50 for the first time, at a career high).

Thiago Monteiro (BRA): No. 89 =======> No. 73 (The Brazilian lefty wins the Salzburg Challenger).

Pedro Cachin (BRA): No. 120 =======> No. 98 (Cachin, at 27, has jumped into the top 100 for the first time in his career, after winning the Challenger in Todi, Italy).

ON THE DOWNSWING

Novak Djokovic (SRB): No. 3 =======> No. 7 (It’s a tough blow for Djokovic, who also may bypass the opportunity for another 4,000 points in North American – and alread missed out on 2,000 in Australia in January. Just imagine where he’d be; as it is, he’s just 1200 points behind the No. 1 spot).

Matteo Berrettini (ITA): No. 11 =======> No. 15 (Considering he’s losing 1200 points, it could be a lot worse for Berrettini, who had to withdraw from Wimbledon before the start because of COVID, and may well have helped paved the way for Nick Kyrgios in the bottom half of the draw).

Denis Shapovalov (CAN): No. 16 =======> No. 23 (Shapovalov was shocked by Brandon Nakashima in the second round at Wimbledon, but his semifinal points from last year are gone and, with that, his spot in the top 20).

Karen Khachanov (RUS): No. 22 =======> No. 27 (Khachanov didn’t get a chance to play at Wimbledon. But he still would have dropped 315 points. Then again, had he played, the ATP probably wouldn’t have removed the points. So it’s a chicken-egg situation).

Nick Kyrgios (AUS): No. 40 =======> No. 45 (Get to the Wimbledon final – drop five spots in the rankings. With those 1200 finalists’ points, he’s in the top 20, most likely).

Ilya Ivashka (BLR): No. 44 =======> No. 54 (Banned, the Belarussian can’t defend the 160 points from 2021).

Cristian Garin (CHI): No. 43 =======> No. 56 (The quarterfinalist had a good run last year as well. But those points fall off, and he’s out of the top 50).

Marton Fucsovics (HUN): No. 59 =======> No. 97 (Tough blow for Fucsovics, one of the one most affected by the ban. He drops 350 points from a year ago).

Vasek Pospisil (CAN): No. 134 =======> No. 143 (After losing in Wimbledon qualifying, Pospisil played a hard-court Challenger in Malaga but lost first round).

Sam Querrey (USA): No. 157 =======> No. 281 (Ouch for Querrey, who lost in the first round of Wimbledon, but drops 180 points from a year ago).

Brayden Schnur (CAN): No. 306 =======> No. 347 (Schnur is out for awhile with a back issue, and will take a protected ranking when he returns).

Roger Federer (SUI): No. 97 =======> No. —- (Those 600 points from the 2019 final are finally gone. And Federer now has no ranking No wonder it seemed so … bittersweet at the centenary celebration last weekend).
