Ruud climbs two places in ATP standings, Djokovic remains first

The Norwegian Casper Ruud climbed two places this Monday in the ATP rankings to achieve the best position of his career (12th), after his triumph on Saturday in the Kitzbühel tournament, his third in three weeks, against the Spanish Pedro Martínez.

Serbian Novak Djokovic, who was left without a medal at the Tokyo Olympics, remains first in the world with a solid lead of almost 2,000 points.

The Olympic tennis tournament does not award points in the ATP ranking.

Ruud has won back-to-back in Bastad, Gstaad and Kitzbühel, all of them clay court tournaments.

Upon reaching the final in the Austrian event, the first of his career, Martínez climbed 21 positions in the ranking on Monday, placing himself 76th.
