By John

Jump in the rankings and best ATP ranking for three Italian tennis players – Flavio Cobolli (n.62), Luciano Darderi (n.73) and Matteo Gigante (n.148) – in the new ranking published today, which does not see any particular changes in the top 10 if not the return to number 9 of the Norwegian Casper Ruud thanks to the final reached in Acapulco.

The upcoming Masters 1000 in Indian Wells could project Jannik Sinner into second place, overtaking Carlos Alcaraz, who crossed rackets with Rafa Nadal during the night, beating the former world no.1 in an exhibition in Las Vegas.

Behind Sinner, in the Italian team among the top 100 Lorenzo Musetti remains at number 26, while Matteo Arnaldi rises to number 40 and Lorenzo Sonego drops to number 55, ahead of Cobolli and Darderi. Few changes for the Italians in the WTA rankings, after the conclusion of the «500» in San Diego and the «250» in Austin.

Five remain in the top hundred, with Jasmine Paolini remaining leader and reiterating the “best ranking” of 14th place signed after the triumph in Dubai. Lucia Bronzetti, number 53, takes a step back, while Martina Trevisan, number 59, takes one forward, overtaking Elisabetta Cocciaretto, now at number 60 with four positions less than seven days ago. Sara Errani slips back ten steps: the Italian veteran is now number 100. The top ten remains unchanged, still led by the Polish Iga Swiatek ahead of the Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka and the American Coco Gauff.
