Tennis Power Ranking 2019:
Post-US Open Suffling
- Rafael Nadal – Rafa won his 4th US Open title and also took home the big trophy in Montreal. Rafa is #1 here and will soon be #1 on the ATP computer.
- Novak Djokovic – Djokovic’s epic Wimbledon title gives him 1/2 of 2019’s major haul. His shoulder is a point of concern, but the top two are pretty clear.
- Daniil Medvedev – The Russian came close to taking a maiden major. He also posted runner-up finishes in DC and Montreal while claiming Cincinnati. He is a player on the move.
- Roger Federer – Roger concluded his 2019 major campaign with an 18-4 record. He also owns 3 tournament titles this year. He did not grab a 21st major, but he is one of the most relevant players on tour even if his age shows from time to time.
- Grigor Dimitrov – The US Open reinvigorated his year even if he came up short in the semifinal round. He has some momentum. Can that carry over into 2020?
- Matteo Berrettini – This power player has a bright future ahead of him and like Dimitrov has momentum coming out of NY.
- Diego Schwartzman – He is at times outgunned on the court, but Schwartzman is always fighting and grabs wins that one would think might be out of reach.
- David Goffin – He did reach the Cincinnati final, but that showing plus getting drilled by Federer are not great signs.
- Gael Monfils – He made a nice run at the US Open. His game is aging well like a few others on this list.
- Roberto Bautista Agut – His Wimbledon semifinal run keeps him in my current top 10.
