ATP Rankings (17/06/24): Jack Draper - Roland Garros 2024 and Andy Murray - Indian Wells 2024

ATP Rankings (17/06/24): New British No.1 crowned, as another keeps falling

The first week of main tour grass court action is over, with a new name in the winner’s circle enabling a new British No.1 in the ATP rankings.

At the Stuttgart Open, Jack Draper claimed his first tour title after fighting back to beat Matteo Berrettini in the final.

It was third time lucky for Draper, who had lost his two previous main tour finals on the hard courts of Sofia and Adelaide.

As a result of his victory, Draper has risen nine places to a new career-high ranking of world No.31, overtaking Cameron Norrie to become British No.1 for the first time. The 22-year-old is the youngest man to become British No.1 since Andy Murray in 2009.

The other main tour winner of the week was a more familiar face in Alex de Minaur, who claimed his ninth ATP title at the tournament in ‘s-Hertogenbosch.

De Minaur is also now at a career-high ranking of No.7, leapfrogging Casper Ruud and Hubert Hurkacz.

Big Movers

Although he was beaten in the Stuttgart Open final, the aforementioned Berrettini is the biggest upward mover of the week inside the top 100.

It was only the Italian’s fifth tournament of the year, having struggled with injuries and illness.

But when on the matchcourt, Berrettini has thrived having reached finals in Phoenix and Stuttgart, as well as winning the title on the clay of Marrakech.

Consequently, Berrettini has now climbed another 30 places upto world No.65, as he looks a real threat once again ahead of Wimbledon.

It was also a positive week for Brandon Nakashima, who reached his first main tour grass court semi-final in Stuttgart before being beaten by eventual champion Draper.

The American has now risen another seven spots up the rankings to No.63.

While the grass court season is now underway, there were also some ATP Challenger events taking place on clay, with both Luciano Darderi (+7 to No.34) and Hugo Gaston (+13 to No.69) taking advantage after winning the titles in Perugia and Lyon, respectively.

Some of the other significant upward movers in the ATP rankings this week include Sumit Nagal (+6 to No.71), Aleksandar Vukic (+7 to No.80), Daniel Altmaier (+7 to No.82), James Duckworth (+13 to No.88), Denis Shapovalov (+6 to No.111), Hamad Medjedovic (+11 to No.120), Juan Manuel Cerundolo (+27 to No.154), Billy Harris (+21 to No.162) and Gijs Brouwer (+41 to No.191).

It was another poor week for Andy Murray, who exited the first round of the Stuttgart Open after a straight sets defeat to Marcos Giron.

As a result, the Brit has dropped his points from winning the Nottingham Challenger title last year and fallen a further 32 places to exit the top 100 for the first time since 2022 (No.129).

However, Murray was not the only big faller of the week, with Jan-Lennard Struff (-6 to No.41), Jordan Thompson (-6 to No.43), Marton Fucsovics (-13 to No.68), Christopher O’Connell (-7 to No.75), Emil Ruusuvuori (-15 to No.87), Arthur Cazaux (-15 to No.90), Rinky Hijikata (-18 to No.98), Richard Gasquet (-7 to No.123) and Felipe Meligeni Alves (-21 to No.149) also slipping down the rankings.

In Halle, Jannik Sinner is the top seed in his first tournament since becoming world No.1.

However, the Italian will also face some tough competition from the likes of Alexander Zverev, Daniil Medvedev, Andrey Rublev and defending champion Alexander Bublik.

ATP Rankings rules

ATP rankings track and rank all the players on tour over a 52-week period. Points are awarded for performance, with the biggest tournaments giving out the most points over the course of the year.

Those rankings are then used to determine a number of things, such as seedings at tournaments and deciding who qualifies for the season-ending ATP Finals in Turin.

ATP rankings points awarded/tournament

The following points are awarded for the different tiers of tournaments on the ATP Tour, with some slight alterations made for the 2024 season:

Tournament category W F SF QF R16 R32 R64 R128 Q
ATP Tour 
Grand Slam 2000 1300 800 400 200 100 50 10 30
ATP Finals +900
(1500 max)
(1000 max)
200 for each round robin match win
(600 max)
ATP Masters 1000 1000 650 400 200 100 50 10 (30) (10) 30 (20)
ATP 500 500 330 200 100 50 (25) 25 (16)
ATP 250 250 165 100 50 25 (13) 13 (8)

Admissible tournaments

To prevent players from manipulating the rankings by playing a large amount of smaller tournaments, only 19 tournaments are admissible over the course of the year to make up a ranking.

That number does not include the ATP Finals, with that treated as an extra earned opportunity to win rankings points. However, the bigger and most prestigious tournaments are considered ‘mandatory’ entries. For example, if a player lost in round one of a Grand Slam, they would not be permitted to omit it from their ranking in favour of an ATP 250 which earned them more points.

Therefore, players who compete at all the mandatory events in a season will have the following breakdown of admissible rankings points:

  • 4 Grand Slams
  • 8 Masters 1000
  • 7 ‘Best Other’ performances

The rankings always cover the previous 52-week period, so any points won further back than that are deducted from a player’s total. That player will, though, have the chance to ‘defend’ their points by repeating or improving upon their previous performance.

An example would be a player who was a defeated finalist at the Australian Open in 2024 will have 1300 points deducted from their ranking following the 2025 final. Those points would then be replaced by those won at the 2025 tournament.
