Ranking movers: Kokkinakis improves to new career-high
Australian Thanasi Kokkinakis rises to world No.65 in the latest ATP Tour singles rankings.
Thanasi Kokkinakis’ most consistent season to date has been rewarded in the latest ATP Tour men’s singles rankings.
The 27-year-old jumps up two spots to a career-high world No.65 after reaching the semifinals at an ATP Challenger tournament in Sydney last week.
This effort improves Kokkinakis’ season record to 40 wins from his 63 completed matches and sees him leapfrog Chris O’Connell to become the sixth highest-ranked Australian.
Aussie No.1 Alex de Minaur is also on the rise, moving up one spot to world No.12 following a quarterfinal appearance at an ATP Masters 1000 tournament in Paris.
Philip Sekulic (up nine spots to world No.273) is at a new career-high too, while Blake Mott (up 35 positions to world No.403) sits at his highest ranking since February 2018.
Mott has been a standout performer on the Australian Pro Tour in recent weeks, winning 18 of his past 23 matches. The resurgent 27-year-old advanced to the quarterfinals in Sydney last week, which was his best result at ATP Challenger level since 2017.
