David Goffin rises one place after title in Montpellier, Elise Mertens has to give up one in the world ranking

David Goffin stijgt een plek na titel in Montpellier, Elise Mertens moet er eentje prijsgeven op wereldranglijst

David Goffin sees his tournament victory in Montpellier translated into a place win on the new ATP ranking. De Liège is fourteenth. It is the only change in the top thirty of men’s tennis. Elise Mertens has to lose her place in the new world ranking of women’s tennis. The Limburg is eighteenth.

Goffin flips over Canadian Milos Raonic. He is barely ten points behind Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut, against whom he won his fifth ATP title on Sunday.

The highest ranking of the Luikenaar is number 7 in November 2017. This week he is at work in Rotterdam where he opens against the German Jan-Lennard Struff (ATP 37).

The Australian Alexei Popyrin enters the top 100 in 82nd place thanks to his title in Singapore. He climbs 32 positions. The victory in the double was for Sander Gillé and Joran Vliegen. They improve slightly on the double ranking. Flying is 35th (+2) and Gillé 38th (+3).

The jump of the week comes in the name of the Argentinian teenager Juan Manuel Cerundolo. He immediately won the title for his own people in Cordoba in his first ATP tournament and rises 154 places to number 181.

Kimmer Coppejans remains the second Belgian in 185th place (-3) ahead of Ruben Bemelmans (200th, -2).

Mertens drops one spot

Elise Mertens is overtaken in the ranking by the Polish Iga Swiatek. He won the Adelaide tournament last weekend and thus took a second title, after Roland Garros last year. The nineteen-year-old Polish rises three positions to number 15.

There are no other shifts in the top thirty. Australian Ashleigh Barty retains first place ahead of Japanese Naomi Osaka and Romanian Simona Halep.

Also with the other Belgians everything remains the same. Alison Van Uytanck (WTA 66), Kirsten Flipkens (WTA 92) and Greet Minnen (WTA 113) remain in place.
