The post Wimbledon rankings are up.

Rafael Nadal has reached a new low. The 22-times grand slam champion has missed much of the season with an injury and that has seen him drop to world no. 140 this week.

Carlos Alcaraz retained the world No. 1 position in the latest ATP rankings released on Monday July 17th after beating Novak Djokovic in the 2023 Wimbledon final.

With no points being handed out for Wimbledon last year, other players mostly increased their cumulative ranking points but there was no change in this week’s top 10.

ATP Rankings Top 10

1. Carlos Alcaraz (Spain) 9,675 points
2. Novak Djokovic (Serbia) 8,795
3. Daniil Medvedev (Russia) 6,520
4. Casper Ruud (Norway) 5,005
5. Stefanos Tsitsipas (Greece) 4,850
6. Holger Rune (Denmark) 4,825
7. Andrey Rublev (Russia) 4,525
8. Jannik Sinner (Italy) 3,975
9. Taylor Fritz (United States) 3,310
10. Frances Tiafoe (United States) 3,130

Our champ will miss the Toronto and Cincinatti events, the traditional warm-ups for the US Open, as he continues his recovery.

We wish Rafa a swift recovery and look forward to seeing him back on the court, showcasing his exceptional talent and passion for the sport. VAMOS RAFA!


  1. 140..can be 1140 ranking as far as I go. RAFA IS NO. 1 in my rankings, and has been for as long as I’ve followed and been his fan, and his fan alone. If I live to be 100 or just next wk, my Rafa is Numerous Uno. He himself does not put much interest in rankings or even winning the most GS. He loves this game..this is his passion outside his family. Stop all this rubbish printing. We need to just remember Rafa in our thoughts for a full and complete recovery. Then the world will see the man that Rafa Nadal truly is. He has faced and suffered so many injuries during his career..if that was another they would have retired years back. Vamos our Rafa for ever and a day.

  2. Current rank means nothing to us or Rafa. I’m stunned people like FAA are still in the top 20!! Rafa will regain some rank when he returns. And you watch… if he feels good he won’t retire!!! We know he’s the GOAT. We love him and look forward to his thunderous return!! Vamos, Rafa!!

  3. It’s now time for Rafa to hang up his racquet. He has nothing to prove because he’s the legend in the sporting world of tennis along side with RF. For me Rafa is THEGOAT.

      • Davis Cup (5), Olympic gold medals (2), Gentleman (his entire life), amount of tax paid to his home country (millions)

        The GOAT debate is a thing that is dependant on a lot more than trophies alone. Someone who is a credit to the game and a positive role model could be considered the GOAT. When it comes to the whole GOAT thing, I don’t particulary care, neither does Rafa.

  4. “All good things come to an end”. Nadal will always be at the top, so this sill ranking makes no difference.

  5. Once the physical side is healed, the heart – indeed the soul will remember what it knew all along. Rafa just needs to keep faith and be in touch with that deepest part of himself.

    How do qualifiers like Emma Raducanu and most recently, Marketa Vondrousova in crutches only the year prior, go and win a major? There is something bigger than their youth or their lack of experience that brings forth results such as these.

    Rafa with his armoury of talent, will and passion for the sport he loves, the foundation he has built and made strong all these years – will see him through.

    Just watch….

  6. To be honest I thought his ranking was much lower since he didn’t play for such a long time.

  7. this Rafael Nadal fans article is ridiculous, again with the ranking! Of course he will drop, he has not played.
    He is still number one in my book. No one will ever come close to him regarding his game, his personality and the excitement he brought to the court. He had his own ranking period.
    Hope he heals well and hope we see him back on the court at least one more time.

    • Yeah. Totally agree. He’s the best player ever in the history of tennis. Especially when you take in to consideration all the injuries he’s endured yet still came back, time and time again. Rafa has been off the tour for about half a year, I don’t care what his ranking is right now.

      I have to say though, I think he’ll be back on court a lot more than one more time. You can’t improve upon perfection, Rafa is perfect, in every way.
