ATP rankings update: Jannik Sinner topples Djokovic to become world no. 1

The latest ATP rankings, released on Monday, June 10th, have brought significant changes at the top of men’s tennis. Jannik Sinner has officially debuted as the new World No. 1. His rise to the top comes after an impressive performance at Roland-Garros.

Carlos Alcaraz, fresh off his title win at Roland-Garros, has also seen a significant boost in his ranking, moving up to the No. 2 spot. This shift has caused 24-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic to slip two places to No. 3. Djokovic, who is recovering from knee surgery, is likely to miss Wimbledon, where he is the defending finalist, potentially leading to further drops in his ranking in 2024.

Top 10 Changes

Alex de Minaur has reentered the top 10, climbing two spots to No. 9. His rise has come at the expense of Stefanos Tsitsipas, whose quarter-final exit at Roland-Garros was not enough to prevent him from slipping two places to No. 11.

Current ATP Top 10 (as of June 10, 2024):

  1. Jannik Sinner: 9,525 points
  2. Carlos Alcaraz: 8,580 points
  3. Novak Djokovic: 8,360 points
  4. Alexander Zverev: 6,885 points
  5. Daniil Medvedev: 6,485 points
  6. Andrey Rublev: 4,710 points
  7. Casper Ruud: 4,025 points
  8. Hubert Hurkacz: 3,995 points
  9. Alex de Minaur: 3,845 points
  10. Grigor Dimitrov: 3,775 points

  • Karen Khachanov: Down four places to No. 22
  • Jan-Lennard Struff: Up six places to No. 35
  • Corentin Moutet: The biggest mover, up 23 places to No. 56, following his round-of-16 run at Roland-Garros
