The world ranking leader, Iga Świątek, will join Wimbledon as the top ranked tennis player. This time, the points scored in the tournament will not count toward the WTA ranking or – in the case of the men’s – the ATP rating.
Among the women, the Estonian Annette Kontaveit came in second place, and the Tunisian Anas Jaber was third.
The top ten also included: Paula Padusa (Spain), Maria Sakkari (Greece), Karolina Pliskova (Czech Republic), Danielle Collins (USA), Jessica Pegola (USA), Garbine Muguruza (Spain), Emma Raducano (UK).
The lack of Wimbledon award points this year is bad news for Hubert Hurkacz, who reached the semi-finals in London last year. This time Hurkacz is also one of the quiet candidates, especially after winning the championship at Halle.
There, in the final, Hurkacz defeated Daniil Medvedev, the leader of the Russian ranking, 6: 1, 6: 4. This, however, will not play at Wimbledon, because the tournament authorities prevented Russians and Belarusians from entering it.
For this reason, Serbian Novak Djokovic is the best ranked tennis player, ahead of Rafael Nadal of Spain and Casper Ruud of Norway.
Hurkacz enters the tournament, who is in seventh place, ahead of Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas, Carlos Alcaraz of Spain and Felix Auger-Aliassime of Canada. The top ten were closed by Matteo Berrettini (Italy), Cameron Nouri (Great Britain) and Janek Sener (Italy).
