Men’s singles

Four Australian men feature inside the world’s top 50 in the latest ATP Tour men’s singles rankings.

This is the highest representation of Australian men in the top 50 since March 2021.

Alexei Popyrin and Max Purcell each make their top-50 debuts this week after recording career-best runs at ATP Masters 1000 level in Cincinnati.

The 24-year-old Popyrin soars 18 places to world No.40 following his quarterfinal appearance. His previous career-high ranking was No.56, achieved earlier this month.

The 25-year-old Purcell, who was ranked outside the world’s top 200 in February, now sits at world No.47. He climbs 23 places after also reaching the quarterfinals. This betters Purcell’s previous high of No.62 in June.

Jordan Thompson returns to the top 50 for the first time since March 2021, rising five places to world No.50 after reaching the second round in Cincinnati as a qualifier.

Adam Walton is celebrating a major milestone this week too. The 24-year-old makes his top-200 debut, improving seven places to world No.199.
