Daniil Medvedev v Vasek Pospisil Live Streaming & Predictions

With three ATP and WTA tournaments played last week, including a Masters 1000 competition, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that there were a few shuffles in the men’s and women’s rankings for the new week.

Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Dominic Thiem suffered surprise defeats in their quarterfinal rounds at the Shanghai Masters. While this didn’t leave in an impact in their rankings this week, Djokovic’s early defeat will eventually result in him losing the top spot to Rafael Nadal by next month.

The top ten rankings remained unchanged except for Karen Khachanov and Kei Nishikori who traded placed with Khachanov now standing at 8 after reaching the round of 16 in Shanghai.

Matteo Berrettini reached the semi-finals in Shanghai and as a result moved up two places, ranking just outside the top 10 at 11.

Thiago Monteiro returned to the top 100 after reaching the semi-finals of the Challengers tournament in Santo Domingo. Steve Johnson moved up by thirteen places after reaching the finals of the Challengers event in Fairfield.

Lucas Pouille moved up three places entering the top 20 after reaching the round of 32 in Shanghai and so did Reilley Opelka who ranks at 37 now.

Alexander Bublik moved up six places after he successfully qualified for the Shanghai Masters but lost in the round of 64.

Borna Coric dropped out of the top 20 after losing in the round of 64 in Shanghai to Andrey Rublev who gained two spots on reaching the round of 16.

In the WTA rankings, the top 20 remained unchanged at the close of the Asian Swing as players move onto the European leg of the remaining season. Ashleigh Barty still stands at No.1.

The biggest news of the week came in the form of 15-year-old, Cori Gauff, who moved up thirty-eight places to rank at 71 after winning her first WTA title at Linz on defeating French Open winner Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 1-6, 6-2. Gauff became the youngest player to win a WTA title in the last fifteen years. Ostapenko also moved up nine places after her finals appearance.

After her win at the Tianjin Open, Rebecca Peterson moved up fifteen places ranking at 44. She defeated Heather Watson in the finals, with the latter returning to the top 100 by moving up a staggering thirty-seven places to rank at 88. Peterson defeated Ons Jabeur in the semi-finals. Jabeur also moved up eight places.

Camila Giorgi dropped twenty-nine places, Timea Babos dropped five places and Nao Hibino dropped nine places leaving them all at a close position from dropping out of the top 100.

Towards the end of this year’s season, all players will look to grab as many points as they can from the remaining tournaments of the season.
