Several players had dramatic rises on the ATP Rankings thanks to their impressive play throughout the 2022 season.
One of the best players in this regard is Nick Kyrgios, an Australian who began the year with a strong performance in the Australian Open and never lost steam. Positive outcomes came and went, as Kyrgios gradually raised both his singles and doubles ranks. He was 93rd when the year began, and ended the 2022 season ranked 22nd in the world.
Another person whose ranking saw a significant rise this year is Carlos Alcaraz. The Spaniard was able to claim his first grand slam title at the US Open, which earned him the world's top rating, a spot he will retain into the next year. Alcaraz started the year in 33rd place and, astonishingly, finished at the top of the table.
The WTA also featured a motivational tale involving Caroline Garcia, as the Frenchwoman made a sensational comeback this year. Although she didn't get off to a great start and didn't really pick up steam until the halfway point of the season, the 29-year old still managed to move up in the rankings from 74 at the start of the season, ending the year ranked at World No.4.
American Ben Shelton is another talent who will undoubtedly have an influence next year. The college player began the year ranked at World No. 573 but moved up to No.97 by the end of the year, thanks to a streak of outstanding challenger tour performances.
