ATP and WTA Rankings Update: Novak Djokovic on top, Rafael Nadal fourth, Casper Ruud sixth

    After the end of Roland Garros, a shake-up in the ATP Rankings introduced a new career-high for finalist Casper Ruud. The Norwegian player is now world number six, while Novak Djokovic retains the top spot

    However, he will fall off his throne next week when Daniil Medvedev becomes the top-ranked player in the world. Trailing right behind is Alexander Zverev, whose injury sabotaged his chances of dethroning Djokovic. 

    Meanwhile, Rafael Nadal climbed up a spot after his Roland Garros triumph pushing Stefanos Tsitsipas back to number five. Nadal is now the fourth-ranked player and the oldest men's champion in the history of the clay-court event. It is also the first time he has won both the Australian Open and French Open in the same year. 

    He has now equalised his compatriot Carlos Alcaraz's tour-leading four titles in 2022. Alcaraz is world number seven, followed by Rublev, who is in the eighth position. Auger-Aliassime is still ninth-ranked, and Matteo Berrettini is the tenth player. Marin Cilic dashed past six spots to become number 17, with Holger Rune moving up 12 places to number 28. 

    Iga Swiatek is number one, Anett Kontaveit debuts at number two, Ons Jabeur at number four

    On the other hand, the WTA rankings declared career-high for both Anett Kontaveit and Ons Jabeur as they have never been ranked higher, but the pair thrive behind Iga Swiatek at number one. Iga Swiatek met expectations and sacked the trophy extending her record of winning 35 matches in a row. Swiatek's second victory at the French Open gave the Polish international a lead of almost twice as many points as the second-ranked Anett Kontaveit. Swiatek won her sixth consecutive title this season, including the Roland Garros crown, and now has 8,631 points, which is 4,305 more than anyone else on the chart.

    It marks her tenth consecutive week as number one following the sudden retirement of Ashleigh Barty earlier on April 4. After the Polish international, we have Anett Kontaveit, who adorns the second rank, while Paula Badosa slid back to number three. Although the former ended her French Open campaign in the first round, Kontaveit appeared in back-to-back finals earlier this year, including St. Petersburg, where she clinched her sixth career title, and Doha, where she was a runner-up to champion Swiatek. 

    Meanwhile, Ons Jabeur occupies the fourth spot, a career-high. Sakari sits at the fifth position, as Jessica Pegula cracked into the top 10 at number nine. Elsewhere, Daria Kasatkina is world number 12, and Coco Gauff sits next. The American, who finished as runner-up in the 2022 French Open, moved up ten places to occupy the 13th position. It was delightfully shocking to witness Martina Trevisan jumping 32 spots to number 27.
