Schwartzman Returns To Top 20, Mover Of The Week

NEWS SOURCE: ATP News
ORIGINAL SOURCE – Schwartzman Returns To Top 20, Mover Of The Week

No. 20 Diego Schwartzman, +4
The Argentine did not drop a set en route to his maiden ATP Masters 1000 semi-final at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome. Schwartzman defeated Yoshihito Nishioka, Albert Ramos-Vinolas and Matteo Berrettini, before shocking Kei Nishikori in the quarter-finals. After falling to World No. 1 Novak Djokovic in three sets in the last four, the 26-year-old re-enters the Top 20 of the ATP Rankings, at No. 20, for the first time since 24 February.

No. 6 (Career High) Stefanos Tsitsipas, +1
For the sixth time this season, Tsitsipas rises to a career-high ATP Ranking. After a runner-up finish at the Mutua Madrid Open (l. to Djokovic), the #NextGenATP Greek defeated home favourites Jannik Sinner and Fabio Fognini en route to the semi-finals in Rome. Tsitsipas did not manage to join Novak Djokovic (2011 Madrid & Rome) as the second man to defeat Rafael Nadal in back-to-back clay-court tournaments, but jumps one spot to No. 6 in the ATP Rankings.

The Spaniard soars 12 positions to No. 26 in the ATP Rankings, his joint-highest position since 6 July 2014 (No. 24).
