The Portuguese João Sousa rose today to the 41st place in the world tennis classification, reaching the best position ever since May 8th (2017) in a table that continues to be led by the Spaniard Rafael Nadal.
João Sousa, who was knocked out in the first round of the Umag tournament last week in Croatia, was up three places from last week’s standings.
In pairs, the Portuguese rose to 59th place, reaching his highest ever rating after reaching the semi-finals of the Umag tournament, in which he teamed with Mexican Santiago Gonzalez.
In the ‘top 10’ the only change was the exchange of places between the Austrian Dominic Thiem, who rose to eighth, and the American John Isner, who came down to ninth.
At the top, behind the Spanish are Swiss Roger Federer, second, and German Alexander Zverev.
