Sonego Breaks Into Top 30, Mover Of Week
No. 28 Lorenzo Sonego, +6 (Career High)
The Italian has broken into the Top 30 of the FedEx ATP Rankings for the first time, rising to a career-high No. 28 after he captured his second ATP Tour title on Sunday at the Sardegna Open. Sonego beat Laslo Djere 2-6, 7-6(5), 6-4 in the Cagliari final and is now one of four Italians in the Top 30 (also No. 10 Matteo Berrettini, No. 18 Fabio Fognini and No. 22 Jannik Sinner). He had featured in the Top 40 since the week beginning 2 November 2020.
The 25-year-old Sonego, who partnered compatriot Andrea Vavassori to the Cagliari doubles title, became the first player to capture singles and doubles titles in the same week since Feliciano Lopez at the 2019 cinch Championships in London. He is also the first Italian to lift a tour-level trophy on home soil since Filippo Volandri at Palermo (d. Lapentti) in October 2006. The last Italian to complete a title ‘double’ was Berrettini at the 2018 Swiss Open Gstaad.
No. 12 Pablo Carreno Busta, +3
The Spaniard is closing on the Top 10 for the first time since 25 February 2018. Carreno Busta, who rises three spots to No. 12, clinched his first trophy on home soil on Sunday by beating fellow Spaniard Jaume Munar 6-1, 2-6, 6-4 at the AnyTech365 Andalucia Open. It was his 200th tour-level match win.
