Welcome to SI Tennis Power Rankings – a new recurring feature on SI.com that goes beyond the regular ATP and WTA rankings to grade and rank the top 20 men's and women's players by more than just points earned on tour. While tournament results and quality of play are considered, SI Tennis’ Power Rankings also take into account those unquantifiable metrics that make the sport so compelling—everything from injuries and meltdowns to big upsets and recent title wins, as well as other subjective assessments. Each edition of SI Tennis Power Rankings is intended to capture a more seasonal and timely portrait of the current tennis rankings.

Check out the newest edition of SI Tennis Power Rankings below.



ATP Power Rankings
 
  • 1

    ATP

    1Novak Djokovic
    ATP Ranking: 1
    Previous Power Ranking: 1
    A 25-2 start to the season and the dominant force on hard courts, Djokovic finished the first quarter by winning the three biggest tournaments of the season so far: Australian Open, Indian Wells and Miami. Now begins the assault on Paris. 

  • 2

    ATP

    2Roger Federer
    ATP Ranking: 2
    Previous Power Ranking: 3
    Federer is actually down at No. 6 in the ATP Race rankings, primarily because he's only played five tournaments and opted to skip Miami. His only two losses this year came to Andreas Seppi at the Australian Open and Djokovic in the Indian Wells final. But Federer still got the better of the Serb on Dubai's quick hard courts to win his seventh title there. 

  • 3

    ATP

    3​
    Andy Murray
    ATP Ranking: 3
    Previous Power Ranking: 2
     
    Murray hasn't been able to solve his Djokovic problem, losing all three of their matches this year. He hasn't won a title yet in 2015 but he made two of the biggest finals of the year in Australia and Miami. He's getting closer. 

  • 4

    ATP

    4TOMAS BERDYCH
    ATP Ranking: 8
    Previous Power Ranking: 5
    Berdych hasn't followed up his big win over Rafael Nadal with another, but the Czech has been consistent. He's made the at least quarterfinals of every tournament this year and made the semifinals or better at five of six.

  • 5

    ATP

    5David Ferrer
    ATP Ranking: 7
    Previous Power Ranking: 9
    Ferrer lost just one match in the first two months of the season and was the first man to three titles this year (Auckland, Rio de Janiero and Acapulco). His 22-3 start is incredible given how tempting it was to write him off after a dip in 2014. 

  • 6

    ATP

    6Kei nishikori
    ATP Ranking: 4
    Previous Power Ranking: 8
    Nishikori No. 7 in the ATP Race to London and 1-3 against Top 10 opposition at ATP events. His North American swing was disappointing, with losses to Ferrer, Feliciano Lopez and John Isner. 

  • 7

    ATP

    7Milos raonic
    ATP Ranking: 6
    Previous Power Ranking: 7
    Raonic started the year playing some of his best tennis in a tight three-set loss to Federer in the Brisbane final and notched his first win over Nadal in Indian Wells. His big-man tennis just keeps improving.  

  • 8

    ATP

    8STAN WAWRINKA
    ATP Ranking: 9
    Previous Power Ranking: 8
    Wawrinka came flying out of the gates with titles in Chennai and Rotterdam and a run to the Australian Open semifinals. But he hasn't beaten a Top 30 player since, losing to Sergiy Stakhovsky, Robin Haase and Adrian Mannarino in his last three tournaments. 

  • 9

    ATP

    9RAFAEL NADAL
    ATP Ranking: 5
    Previous Power Ranking: 6
    Nadal's level has improved month-to-month and things will pick up for Nadal when the tour turns to clay. But aside from his Buenos Aires title, he hasn't been able to make much of an impact in 2015—yet. 

  • 10

    ATP

    10BERNARD TOMIC
    ATP Ranking: 27
    Previous Power Ranking: Out of Top 20
    While no one was looking, Tomic played nine tournaments—the most of anyone currently ranked in the Top 10 of the ATP Race rankings—and made the quarterfinals or better at six of them. All while nursing a toothache. 

  • 11

    ATP

    11JOHN ISNER
    ATP Ranking: 19
    Previous Power Ranking: 17
    Isner's play over the last four weeks has jump-started his season. In Miami heat beat Grigor Dimitrov, Raonic and Nishikori in succession before losing to Djokovic, all on the heels of a quarterfinal run in Indian Wells. He is the definition of a player trending the right way and if he stays aggressive on clay, he can be an impact player. 

  • 12

    ATP

    GILLES SIMON
    ATP Ranking: 13
    Previous Power Ranking: Out of Top 20
    Since losing to Jerzy Janowicz early in Montpellier, Simon hasn't taken a bad loss. He won his first title of the season in Marseille and made the fourth round of Indian Wells and Miami. Consistent. 

  • 13

    ATP

    13Kevin Anderson
    ATP Ranking: 16
    Previous Power Ranking: 12
    Consistent but not formable, Anderson has had a good start to the season, making the fourth round at the Australian Open (l. Nadal), final in Memphis (l. Nishikori), semifinals of Acapulco (l. Nishikori), and fourth round of Miami (l. Murray). 
  • 14

    ATP

    feliciano lopez
    ATP Ranking: 12
    Previous Power Ranking: 11 
    Up to a career-high ranking at No. 12, Lopez is struggling with his consistency. He did well to make the fourth round at the Australian Open and quarterfinals at Indian Wells, but he's taken losses to No. 156 Aljaz Bedene, No. 73 Victor Estrella Burgos, and No. 104 Marsel Ilhan.  

  • 15

    ATP

    15GAEL MONFILS
    ATP Ranking: 18
    Previous Power Ranking: 14
    With just five tournaments under his belt this season, Monfils continues to struggle with injuries. In his first tournament in over month at Miami, he retired after taking a heavy fall against Berdych. But when he's played he has been solid, making the quarterfinals or better at three events. 

  • 16

    ATP

    Juan monaco
    ATP Ranking: 39
    Previous Power Ranking: Out of Top 20
    Monaco is up to No. 23 in the ATP Race rankings after ending a 0-4 start to the season in Rio de Janiero. Since then he's made the quarterfinals or better at three of four tournaments, including a Miami quarterfinal. 

  • 17

    ATP

    Grigor dimitrov
    ATP Ranking: 11
    Previous Power Ranking: 10
    What is up with Dimitrov? Ever since he imploded against Murray at the Australian Open he's been flat, losing to Gilles Muller, Ryan Harrison Tommy Robredo and Isner. 

  • 18

    ATP

    Ivo karlovic
    ATP Ranking: 22
    Previous Power Ranking: 19
    The Delray Beach champion had a poor Indian Wells-Miami double, failing to win a set in either tournament. Two of his last three losses have been to players outside the Top 100. 

  • 19

    ATP

    GUILLERMO GARCIA-LOPEZ
    ATP Ranking: 24
    Previous Power Ranking: Out of Top 20
    Bolstered by a title run in Zagreb, Croatia, the Spaniard is up to No. 16 in the ATP Race rankings.  

    • 20

      ATP

      Pablo Cuevas
      ATP Ranking: 23
      Previous Power Ranking: Out of Top 20
      Cuevas is up to No. 18 in the ATP Race rankings thanks to a strong run on South American clay. The Uruguayan won Sao Paulo and made the quarterfinals in Rio and Buenos Aires.
