Or in short, Chang was an Ozeki (Champion) Ferrer is a Sekiwake. (Junior Champion) ;-)

Current sanyaku ranked players:
Yokozuna: Novak Djokovic (Dai-Y), Andy Murray, Roger Federer (Dai-Y), [Rafael Nadal is an inactive Dai-Y]
Ozeki: Stan Wawrinka
Sekiwake: none. Komusubi: Tomas Berdych (ex-O), Milos Raonic (ex-S), Kei Nishikori (ex-S), Gael Monfils, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (ex-S), Lucas Pouille

Active ex-sanyaku-ranked players
Cilic, Del Potro, Ferrer. Sekiwake: Baghdatis, Haas, Gasquet. Komusubi: Robredo, Verdasco, Melzer, Youzhny, Janowicz, Dimitrov, Gulbis, Kyrgios, Thiem.
