Spain's Rafael Nadal has gone past Norway's Casper Ruud to move up to number two in the new ATP rankings. With Nadal as the number two seed, the Spaniards dominate the ATP rankings as Carlos Alcaraz already holds the top spot.

This is the first time since Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi in 2000 that two players from the same country hold the top two spots in the ATP rankings. Casper Ruud dropped 205 points after losing in the quarter-finals at Seoul last week, which allowed Nadal to move up to the second spot.

Meanwhile, Japanese player Yoshihito Nishioka climbed to a career-high ranking of 41, 15 places up from his previous ranking if 56, after winning the title in Seoul. Nishioka took

out Ruud in the quarter-finals of the tournament and went on to beat Denis Shapovalov in the final.

Switzerland's Marc-Andrea Huesler was the biggest riser inside the top-100 in the new ATP rankings. The Swiss moved up 31 spots to find a place at 64 after winning the title in Sofia. Huesler entered the 2022 season with six wins to his name and, after his triumph over Holger Rune, he is 10-8 on the season.

21-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic currently holds the number seven rank after being unable to play in many top tournaments this year due to his vaccination status. However, the Serbian beat world no.14 Marin Cilic 6-3 6-4 in the final in Tel Aviv to win his 89th career title.
