David Goffin has dropped from thirteenth to fifteenth place in the new ATP ranking. Elise Mertens then rises again and is now sixteenth.
Goffin gave up last week in the first round of the ATP tournament in Halle, Germany. Due to an ankle injury, he also has to miss Wimbledon, which starts next Monday. There were no changes at the top of the standings. Serbian Novak Djokovic remains in the lead ahead of Russian Daniil Medvedev and Spaniard Rafael Nadal. On the Belgian side, Kimmer Coppejans (191st) and Ruben Bemelmans (217th) remained status quo. Zizou Bergs rose two places to 218th place.
In the new WTA ranking of Elise Mertens, despite her early elimination last week in Birmingham, has risen one spot to sixteenth place. Alison Van Uytvanck jumped seven places with her final victory at the ITF tournament in Nottingham and is now 57th. Van Uytvanck defeated Australian Arina Rodionova in two sets (6-0 and 6-4) on the English grass in the final. It was her twelfth overall victory at ITF level. Van Uytvanck has also won four WTA titles in the past.
The other Belgian players remained status quo. Kirsten Flipkens, who has not played since the end of March due to an ankle injury, is still 95th. Greet Minnen won two places and is now in 119th place. Ysaline Bonaventure remained 128th and Maryna Zanevska dropped five places to 194th.
At the top of the ranking nothing changed. Australia’s Ashleigh Barty retains the lead, ahead of Japan’s Naomi Osaka and Romania’s Simona Halep. (belga)
