Our Rankings Round-Up is our weekly Wednesday piece in which we discuss the rises and falls in the weekly ATP, WTA, ITF, ITA, LTA and Tennis Europe rankings.
With another two-week tournament temporarily freezing the ATP and WTA Rankings, it’s time to focus on the juniors and our players at US College this week, after new ITA Rankings came out this time last week and Brits continues to impress at junior level.
In the Boys’ rankings, Alastair Gray‘s run to the final of the Grade 1 event in Malaysia last week earns him a 20-place surge up to 60th, overtaking Ewan Moore into the British junior #4 slot. Elsewhere, the event in Doha provided more huge rises for the likes of champion Joe Tyler, who is up 113 to #238, and losing finalist Aidan McHugh, who is up 92 to #281. Damian Rodriguez, Matthew Summers, Will Davies and Matthew Story all claim decent rises to around the 300-400 mark in the rankings after success in various different parts of the world. Ryan Gaskin is another who climbs 100+ places, moving up to #556 after his performance in Malta, and Paul Jubb continues to move up towards his true ranking, up 131 to #739.
In the Girls’ rankings, Jodie Anna Burrage‘s run to the final in Uzbekistan puts her just in the top 100, ranked #100 exactly after a 12-place rise. Megan Davies‘ title win in Doha gives her a 59-place boost to #262, while losing finalist Esther Adeshina jumps even higher, up 164 to #411. Anna Loughlan also benefits from a decent week in Malta with a 63-place rise to #693. Maia Lumsden, Eden Richardson and Francesca Jones all edge closer to the top 100 with slight rises.
In the collegiate ITA Rankings, Cameron Norrie drops down to third after being the second best for at least a month, while Julian Cash is still the second-best Brit at #49. Jathan Malik, Ryan Peniston and Jordan Angus are 75, 76, and 79 respectively, while Andrew Watson drops out. Jack Findel-Hawkins and Alex Sendegeya are outside the top 100.
In the Women’s rankings, Zoe Douglas drops out of the top 125, while Daneika Borthwick continues to rise, up to #55, while Emma Devine clings to a spot amongst the elite at #121.
