No. 1 Novak Djokovic, +1
Despite not competing in Miami, Djokovic has risen to No. 1 in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings for a record-extending 381st week. Defending champion Alcaraz’s defeat to Sinner in a dramatic three-set semi-final at the ATP Masters 1000 event meant the Spaniard dropped 640 points, enough for seven-time year-end No. 1 Djokovic to return to top spot.
No. 9 Jannik Sinner, +2
A stirring run to his second championship match appearance in Miami has propelled Sinner back into the Top 10 of the Pepperstone ATP Rankings for the first time since last September. The Italian defeated Grigor Dimitrov, Andrey Rublev, Emil Ruusuvuori and Alcaraz en route to the final, where Medvedev’s rock-solid baseline game ultimately proved too strong.
No. 11 Karen Khachanov, +5
A first ATP Masters 1000 semi-final appearance since 2019 has lifted Khachanov to the brink of a Top 10 return. The 26-year-old, who reached his career-high of No. 8 in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings in 2019, notched his first Top 10 win in 24 attempts against Stefanos Tsitsipas en route to the final four in Miami.
No. 37 Emil Ruusuvuori, +17 (Career High)
Emil Ruusuvuori reeled off a series of confident wins at Hard Rock Stadium to reach his maiden ATP Masters 1000 quarter-final. The Finn dispatched Nuno Borges, Roberto Bautista Agut and Taro Daniel in straight sets before battling past Botic van de Zandschulp in a tense three-setter. Despite defeat to Sinner in the last eight, the 24-year-old Ruusuvuori springs 17 places to a career-high No. 37.
