Zverev's remarkable win at Rome means that he also ousts Kyrgios and Pouille out of this table.

Well, went MIA for a bit (where I live "a bit" is >= 2 months:grin2:).
OK, here's the show (any other NPR Politics Podcast tards out there?):


1532 F.Crist. Jianu 15 ROU 18.9.2001
1399 Chun Hsin Tseng 15 TPE 8.8.2001
1121 N.Alv. Varona 16 ESP 18.5.2001
1024 Sergey Fomin 16 UZB 1.2.2001
683 Rudolf Molleker 16 GER 26.10.2000
220 Auger-Aliassime 16 CAN 8.8.2000
144 D. Shapovalov 18 CAN 15.4.1999
108 Casper Ruud 18 NOR 22.12.1998
64 Frances Tiafoe 19 USA 20.1.1998
47 Andrey Rublev 19 RUS 20.10.1997
8 Alex Zverev 20 GER 20.4.1997
7 Dominic Thiem 23 AUT 3.9.1993
6 Marin Cilic 28 CRO 28.9.1988
5 Novak Djokovic 30 SRB 22.5.1987
1 Andy Murray 30 GBR 15.5.1987


So, Jianu from Romania enters, there was a thread about him here, look for it, if interested. Now 6 of the 15 players on the list are born in the noughties (or aughts, if you come from the other side of the pond). Scary (and I feel so old).

Chun Hsin Tseng is still here, but Alvarez Varona from Spain comes above him, now when I saw the name, it rang a bell and looking at older messages in this very thread - voila! - he was the youngest player ranked in the beginning of 2016.

Molleker goes up 240 places after his impressive run in Hamburg qualies, beating fellow teenager and list member Ruud and Leo Mayer, then taking 7 games off Khachanov in the 1st round.

We find all of Auger-Aliassime, Shapovalov and Casper Ruud higher-ranked than we left them 2 months ago, all at or about their career-highs (Shapovalov was at his CH 130 on Monday but is down to 144 in the live rankings because of Toronto points falling off earlier this year).

Rublev's maiden title, apart from being an impressive feat by itself, means also he's back in the list for the first time in almost 2 years. He's defending less than 200 points by the end of the year and as he'll most probably enter the main draws of all the mandatory tournaments and maybe even will be seeded in some non-mandatory ones, it's safe to say that he'll be year-end Top 50 at least.

Alex Zverev has not only entered Top 10, he'll be No. 8 next Monday, because of the Canada Masters being played very early last year. He is defending only 55 points in the US Series, and his immediate rivals Nishikori, Raonic and Dimitrov have won a ton of points here, so he'll most likely keep his ranking at least until Saint-Petersburg (where he's the defending champion).

Thanks once again, @Slasher1985, for your marvelous ranking site OpenEraRankings

It is worth mentioning that Novak has been part of this list for a whopping 13 consecutive years! And the fun part is that before Alex Zverev got ahead of him this year, the previous younger player to outrank him was... Mischa!

Well, haven't posted in a while - real life caught up with me. I even haven't participated in a single FITD tournament this year (and last year, I almost qualified for the WTF). Excuses, excuses. Anyway, herewith an updated list:


1407 C. Alcaraz Garfia 15 ESP 5.5.2003
1317 F. Cristian Jianu 16 ROU 18.9.2001
1141 Chun Hsin Tseng 16 TPE 8.8.2001
1062 N. Alvarez Varona 16 ESP 18.5.2001
929 Sergey Fomin 17 UZB 1.2.2001
904 Marko Miladinovic 17 SRB 7.12.2000
494 Rudolf Molleker 17 GER 26.10.2000
185 F.Auger-Aliassime 17 CAN 8.8.2000
135 Corentin Moutet 19 FRA 19.4.1999
42 D.Shapovalov 19 CAN 15.4.1999
30 Andrey Rublev 20 RUS 20.10.1997
3 Alex Zverev 21 GER 20.4.1997
1 Rafael Nadal 31 ESP 3.6.1986


So, there have been not many changes since the last update.
1. The changes:
  • Garfia - the youngest player ranked
  • The Serbian Miladinovic - the guy reached AO Junior SF this year. Most of his points come from reaching his first futures final in Antalya earlier this month. There he took a set off Ilkel and before that had beaten 4 player ranked higher than him. One to watch, I think;
  • Dimitrov is out because Zverev got the No. 3 ahead of him
  • Tsitsipas is just two places and 19 points behind Shapovalov and he can get ahead of him if he wins his next match in Estoril vs. KAndy;
2. Movements in the rankings since the beginning of this thread:
  • Jianu - +215 places since 07-26-2017
  • Chun Hsin Tseng - +240 places since 01-31-2017
  • Varona - +722 places since 01-07-2016
  • Fomin - +376 places since 01-31-2017
  • Molleker - +540 places since 01-31-2017
  • FAA- +562 places since 08-10-2015
  • Moutet - +365 places since 01-31-2017
  • Shapovalov - +509 places since 03-22-2016
  • Rublev - +165 places since 08-10-2015
  • Zverev - +83 places since 08-10-2015
Once again, honorable mention to Tsitsipas - it's interesting to follow how he's been moving parallel to Shapo. He's been ousted from the table by Casper Ruud a year ago and then also Denis moved ahead of him. Look where Ruud is now. Also worth noting is that Nicola Kuhn is just several points behind FAA and is very good on clay. I would expect him to enter the table in the next couple of months. However, he broke a toe and will miss the whole clay season. It's a pity, he had WC's for both Barcelona and Madrid.

Are you sure Garcia is the youngest player ever ranked? Felix Auger-Aliassime was also ranked at a very young age, similar to Garcia.

How do you generate this list? You have a script or something? I hope this is not manual?

You could take help from http://live-tennis.eu owner, or even just consulting its age-based lists will make things faster.

^ ATP Open Era & Live Rankings has a lot more features (and can be accessed directly from MTF! Just hit LIVE ATP at the top blue bar). You can even sort on custom ages (for example, 16-18), or by custom date of births. Or by age and country. Or by age and country and career high!

I've been trying to generate an up-to-date list, but the date-of-birth field has disappeared from the XLS version of OpenEraRankings. Also it is not possible to sort by DOB on the Web-site itself. I'm trying to do something with direct copy-paste to Excel right now and will post the results later. I'm interested to see how the new ranking system (ranked players were cut by more than half) is affecting the topic of this thread.
