Few changes in the last week in the Top Ten where the winner of the s’Hertongenbosch tournament gets the Best Ranking: Alex De Minaur. The Australian gains two positions and is now the number 7 in the world.

Ruud and Hurkacz lost a position; little stuff in the Top 30 where Sebastian Korda earned a little something and Francisco Cerundolo made progress. Stable Lorenzo Musetti and immediately behind enters the top of the series Jack Draper who gains nine positions: the winner of the tournament in Stuttgart is the number 31 in the world, but Stuttgart gives great sensations to the finalist, our Matteo Berrettini. In a recent interview, Stefanos Tsitsipas praised Jannik Sinner.

"He’s a very talented guy, but above all, a great guy, on and off the track. One of the most pleasant people on the circuit, I greatly admire your great competitiveness. In my opinion, he is a great representative of this sport, tennis needs people like him because he is a great example for children and for all working people," he said.

Sinner will debut in Germany for the first time ever as the number one in the world, but will have to deal with a rather complicated draw and that will see immediately affixed to insidious opponents.
