Here is all you need to know about the latest WTA and ATP Rankings released on August 22, 2022.
Croatian Borna Coric made an incredible jump of 123 places to become world number 29 in the latest ATP Rankings after his title-winning campaign in Cincinnati.
Coric, who was world number 152 before the ATP1000 Masters event, beat Lorenzo Musetti, Rafael Nadal, Roberto Bautista Agut, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Cameron Norrie and Stefanos Tsitsipas to win the biggest title of his career and become the lowest-ranked player to ever lift a Masters trophy.
Finalist Tsitsipas moved two spots to fifth while Norwegian Casper Ruud, with his second-round loss to local wildcard Ben Shelton, dropped two places to seventh.
Semifinalist Norrie and quarterfinalist Auger-Aliassime reached career-high rankings of nine and eight, respectively.
Elsewhere in the top 100, Argentine Pedro Cachin climbed 22 spots reached a career-high ranking of 66 after clinching the title at the Challenger event in Santo Domingo.
Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia re-entered top 20 for the first time in three years after beating Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic to clinch the Cincinnati Masters title.
Former world number four Garcia, ranked 35th before the tournament, started as a qualifier and beat three top 10 players on her way to becoming the first ever qualifier to win a WTA1000 title.
Kvitova climbed up seven spots to 21.
Belarussian Aryna Sabalenka, with her semifinal finish, went past Romanian Simona Halep to sixth. Halep slipped one place to seventh after she withdrew from the event before her second-round match against Russian Veronika Kudermetova due to a thigh injury.
US Open champion Emma Raducanu jumped two spots to 11. British teenager beat 23-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams in the first round in what was probably the American’s penultimate event of her long and illustrious career. Raducanu defeated Victoria Azarenka in the second round before going down to Jessica Pegula in the round of 16.
Madison Keys, the other semifinalist in Cincinnati, climbed four places to 20. Keys has entered top 20 for the first time in more than a year.
