12 players have secured a new career-high ranking within the top 100 of the ATP ladder entering November.

It has been a week of firsts for a number of top men’s players as 12 see themselves at the highest ranking they have ever achieved.

Inside the top 50, Jannik Sinner, Cameron Norrie, Aslan Karatsev and Carlos Alcaraz are among those climbers. Sinner is into the top 10 for the very first time, now ranked ninth in the world.

He joins compatriot and world number seven Matteo Berrettini to make it two Italians inside the top 10.

India Wells champion Norrie climbs one spot higher from 14th to 13th. After first breaking the top 20 last week, Karatsev climbs further to 16th in the rankings. After starting the year at 112th in the world, he has now scaled 96 spots over this season.

Alcaraz is now 35th after first cracking the top 40 back in September. The Spaniard is the only teenager ranked within the top 40. Lorenzo Musseti is the next highest ranked teen at 67th.

Beyond the top 50, Soonwoo Kwon is 52nd, with Americans Mackenzie McDonald, Jenson Brooksby, and Marcos Giron now 54th, 56th and 57th respectively.

Frenchmen Benjamin Bonzi and Arthur Rinderknech are 60th and 62nd, with another American in Brandon Nakashima now 65th. Finally, Argentine Juan Manuel Cerundolo is 85th and Dutchman Tallon Griekspoor is 88th.

Among the youngsters, Sinner, Alcaraz, Brooksby and Nakashima have all qualified for the Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan. Defending champion from 2019, Sinner is also in contention to make the ATP Finals proper.

He is currently eighth in the Race to Turin, sitting in the final qualification spot for the event. Should he qualify, home fans would see two Italians competing at the event in its inaugural year in Italy, Berrettini and Sinner.
