Rankings Watch: Bernard Tomic roars back into the top 100
Bernard Tomic is back in the ATP top 100 in style. After his Wimbledon performance dropped him to No. 124, the 21-year-old Australian rose 54 spots in the rankings to land at No. 70 after winning his first title of the year in Bogota, Colombia. Tomic's tournament victory, the second of his career, came the same week he missed the cut-off for the main draw of the U.S. Open and was dropped by his management company. With just 55 points to defend over the summer, he should put himself in good position for a U.S. Open wild card.
The biggest mover outside the top 100 was 17-year-old German Alexander Zverev, who jumped 124 spots to make his top 200 debut at No. 161. Zverev was ranked outside the top 800 at the start of the year, but won his first ATP Challenger event last month. Last week in Hamburg, Zverev became the youngest man to win an ATP tour-level match since Grigor Dimitrov and the youngest player to make the semifinals of an ATP 500 tournament since Rafael Nadal.
- David Ferrer is back up to No. 6 after making the final in Hamburg.
- Dominic Thiem is now the youngest man in the top 50. Thiem, 20, is up to a career high No. 47 after making the third round in Hamburg.
- Fabio Fognini fell five spots to No. 20.
- Hamburg champion Leonardo Mayer rose 19 spots to a career-high No. 27.
- Jerzy Janowicz continues to tumble. His descent to No. 53 is his lowest ranking since October 2012.
- Juan Monaco fell 19 spots to fall outside the top 100 for the first time in eight years. He's now ranked No. 105.
