Rafael Nadal of Spain has surpassed Casper Ruud of Norway in the latest ATP rankings, moving up to position two. The Spaniards lead the ATP rankings, where Rafael Nadal is seeded second behind Carlos Alcaraz.

Two players from the same nation are now holding the top two positions in the ATP rankings for the first time since Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi in 2000. After losing in the quarterfinals at Seoul last week, Casper Ruud dropped 205 points, which allowed Nadal to climb up to the second slot.

Novak Djokovic, a 21-time Grand Slam victor, is currently ranked seventh despite missing out on many of the year’s top tournaments because to his immunisation status. To win his 89th career championship, the Serbian defeated Marin Cilic, the world’s No. 14, in the Tel Aviv final, 6-3, 6-4.

Yoshihito Nishioka of Japan advanced 15 positions after winning the title in Seoul, reaching a career-high rating of 41. This is compared to his previous level of 56. Ruud was defeated by Nishioka in the tournament’s quarterfinal round, and Nishioka then defeated Denis Shapovalov in the championship match.

Marc-Andrea Huesler of Switzerland was the top-100 player who rose the most in the latest ATP rankings. Following his victory in Sofia, the Swiss rose 31 positions to take the number 64 spot. Huesler entered the 2022 season with six wins to his name and, after his triumph over Holger Rune, he is 10-8 for the season.
