Auger-Aliassime still 7th in the standings


Quebecer Félix Auger-Aliassime remained seventh in the world on Monday after the publication of the new ATP rankings. 

His compatriot Denis Shapovalov is 27th. 

The ATP ranking, from which Serbian Novak Djokovic regained the lead after his victory at the Australian Open, sees German Alexander Zverev drop to 16th place on Monday.

Zverev, still world No.2 at the end of August before disappearing from the circuit for several months due to a serious ankle injury, is the only member of the Top 20 to fall back after another slip which cost him two places.

The American Frances Tiafoe (+1, 14th) and the Spaniard Pablo Carreno (+1, 15th) took the opportunity to overtake the German, eliminated on Saturday by Switzerland in the Davis Cup.

Besides Djokovic, the podium continues to be occupied by the Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz followed by the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas.

In the Top 100, the progression of the week is the work of the 25-year-old Russian Roman Safiullin, who is progressing from 18th place and climbed to 82nd after winning the Koblenz tournament.

Swiatek dominates an unchanged Top 20 

Polish Iga Swiatek dominates a Top 20 on Monday 20 in the unchanged WTA ranking, in which the podium is still occupied by Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka, crowned at the Australian Open, and Tunisian Ons Jabeur.

The French Caroline Garcia, beaten Sunday in the final in Lyon by Alycia Parks, failed to overtake Jessica Pegula and remains 5th. On the other hand, she grabbed a few points and is only 205 points behind the 4th.
