The 2019 tennis season will remain in the annals of the history of the Italian movement. And to strengthen this belief more stories, more news converge: the latest is that, after the historic qualification to the ATP Finals in London, Matteo Berrettini enjoys his new best ranking, climbing to eighth place in the world rankings . The 23-year-old from Rome, the third Italian for record in the standings behind Panatta (number 4) and Barazzutti (number 7), is already sure to close 2019 in the top ten, the first Italian to do it 41 years after Barazzutti.
The merit is also and above all for access to the ATP Finals scheduled in London from 10 November. And‘the third Italian in history, after Adriano Panatta (1975 in Stockholm) and Corrado Barazzutti (1978 in New York) and, for the 23-year-old Roman, is the culmination of a spectacular season finale that began with the Grand Slam semifinal at the US Open and continued with entry into the Top Ten of the world rankings. Berrettini therefore has fun with other ‘Masters’ such as Nadal, Djokovic, Federer, Medvedev, Thiem, Tsitsipas and Zverev. Not bad for the entire blue movement, which was able to record the entry of eight Italians in the top 100 in the world, the victory of Fabio Fognini at the Master 1000 in Montecarlo and now also the participation of Jannik Sinner at the Next Gen in Milan, and the 18 year old from Val Pusteria and the last announced champion .

returns to the top of the world rankings one year later and for the eighth time in his career . Second oldest number 1 ever at 33 (only Federer did better, at 36 in 2018), the Majorcan will try to defend the lead until the end of the year from Novak Djokovic, undermined yes but in great shape as evidenced by the success of Paris-Bercy. Tsitsipas (6th) also climbs up one position, overtaking Zverev, Khachanov’s exit from the Top Ten allows Gael Monfils to return to the top ten in the world after almost two years. Fabio Fognini stable in 12th place, Italy enjoys six other tennis players among the top hundred in the world: Lorenzo Sonego (53 °, +1), Marco Cecchinato (72 °, -1), Andreas Seppi (74 °), Stefano Travaglia (86 °, +2), Jannik Sinner (95 °, -2) and Salvatore Caruso (97 °, -1).

Behind the Ukrainian are Kvitova and Bencic, while Kiki Bertens takes ninth position at the expense of Serena Williams.
