Khachanov Breaks Into Top 10, Mover Of The Week
ATPTour.com looks at the top Movers of the Week in the ATP Rankings, as of Monday, 10 June 2019
No. 9 (Career High) Karen Khachanov, +2
The 23-year-old advanced to his first Grand Slam quarter-final at Roland Garros after beating Juan Martin del Potro in four sets in the fourth round. Having entered the Round of 16 clash against Del Potro with an 0-3 record in Grand Slam fourth-round matches, Khachanov backed up wins over Cedrik-Marcel Stebe, Gregoire Barrere and Martin Klizan to reach the last eight.
Despite falling to eventual runner-up Dominic Thiem in the quarter-finals, Khachanov becomes the first Russian since Mikhail Youzhny in February 2011 to occupy a spot in the Top 10 of the ATP Rankings. The Moscow-born star rises two positions to a career-high at No. 9.
No. 10 (Career High) Fabio Fognini, +2
At the conclusion of a European clay-court swing which began with a first ATP Masters 1000 trophy at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters (d. Lajovic), Fognini will enter the grass-court season as a Top 10 player. The Italian claimed three straight four-set wins at Roland Garros, which included a victory against Australian Open quarter-finalist Roberto Bautista Agut, before losing to Alexander Zverev in the Round of 16. Like Khachanov, Fognini also jumps two spots to a new career-high ATP Ranking, at No. 10.
No. 19 Stan Wawrinka, +9
Former champion Wawrinka reached his first Grand Slam quarter-final in two years at Roland Garros. The Swiss, who is rebuilding his ATP Ranking following two knee surgeries in August 2017, defeated in-form Chilean Cristian Garin, former World No. 3 Grigor Dimitrov and World No. 6 Stefanos Tsitsipas en route to the last eight. After a four-set loss to Roger Federer in the quarter-finals, the three-time Grand Slam champion leaps nine places to No. 19 in the ATP Rankings. This is the first time that Wawrinka has held a position in the Top 20 since 18 March 2018.
No. 28 Benoit Paire, +10
After picking up titles at the Grand Prix Hassan II (d. Andujar) and Open Parc Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes Lyon (d. Auger-Aliassime), Paire reached the Round of 16 at Roland Garros for the first time. The 30-year-old edged countryman Pierre-Hugues Herbert 6-2, 6-2, 5-7, 6-7(6), 11-9 in a memorable second-round clash en route to the last 16, where he fell in five sets to Kei Nishikori. Paire climbs 10 spots to No. 28 in the ATP Rankings, his highest position in almost three years.
