Men’s singles

Both the ATP Tour and WTA Tour opted not to reward ranking points at Wimbledon this year, due to the tournament’s decision to prevent Russian and Belarusian players from competing.

This means that despite Nick Kyrgios’ career-best run to the Wimbledon final, his ranking slips five spots to world No.45 in the latest ATP Tour men’s singles rankings. Had ranking points been awarded, the 27-year-old would have skyrocketed into the world’s top 20.

Chris O’Connell’s decision to skip Wimbledon has paid off, with the 28-year-old improving seven places to a career-high world No.101.

Rather than contesting qualifying at Wimbledon, O’Connell instead earned ranking points at ATP Challenger events and enjoyed a finals run in Portugal last week.

With Ajla Tomljanovic’s impressive quarterfinal run at Wimbledon not earning any ranking points, the 29-year-old has fallen in the latest WTA Tour women’s singles rankings.

Tomljanovic still remains Australia’s top-ranked woman, despite dropping 27 places to world No.71.

There is better news for Daria Saville, who rises seven spots to world No.91.
