New USA Career-High Rankings, Feb. 23, 2015


Each week I will bring you a list of USAmerican players who have reached a new career-high ranking (CHR). This list covers all players in the Top 1000. Any player outside the Top 1000 will not be included unless they actually have earned at least one point from their previous career-high ranking. See all the CHR posts.

Not included: Thai-Son Kwiatkowski (1005), Reilly Opelka (1106)

The four guys at the top - all of whom spent at least some time in college - are all having solid years, and putting themselves within spitting distance of French Open qualies:

  •  Novikov is in the best shape - he's already near the cut-off and is defending 0 points through the end of April, which is the cut-off for Roland Garros qualies. (His career high came via a quarterfinal at the Morelos, Mexico challenger - lost in three sets to eventual champion Victor Estrella Burgos.) 
  • Nguyen has some work to do - he is defending 9 of his 177 points during that time. (He also reached the Morelos QF.)
  • Jung and Smith are defending 28 and 21 points, respectively. So they'll need a couple of big results to make it. (Jung also made the Morelos QF, while Smith (welcome to the Top 300!) qualified and made the second round.)
(Krueger, who made his jump thanks to Di Wu falling, is defending 25 points through April.)

Two other mentions: Quigley qualified for his first ATP main draw in Delray Beach, recording wins over two Top-200 guys in the process. Here's a nice article from tennis.com about his grind.

Finally, a big jump for 18-year-old Alex Rybakov, courtesy of his first-round win over fellow American teen Nathan Ponwith a week+ ago at USA F7. Alex made the second round in 5 consecutive main draws before last week, when he faced eventual USA F8 champion Patricio Heras in the first round in Plantation.

The two players to note here are Brengle and Min, both of whom scored first-round wins at the WTA event in Rio de Janeiro.

Things should pick up next week in the points-accumulation game on the women's side. In the meantime, here's a fun Q&A with Sachia Vickery (who's only 4 off her career high).
