No.405 to No.46: Mirra Andreeva's ASTONISHING 359 spot rise as top ranking risers confirmed for 2023

Mirra Andreeva and Alex Michelsen made the most significant leaps into the top 100 on the WTA and ATP Tour, respectively, over the past year. Both teenagers achieved the most substantial advancements in their rankings, entering the top 100 for the first time in their careers in 2023.

In the women's category, the standout surprise was 16-year-old Russian player Mirra Andreeva, who ascended from the world No. 405 to the 46th position in 2023. Andreeva, who was still competing in junior categories, made waves during the clay season by reaching the fourth round of the WTA 1000 Madrid, the third round in the French Open, and the fourth round at Wimbledon. These achievements propelled her into the top 50.

On the men's side, 19-year-old Alex Michelsen experienced an even more remarkable jump, advancing over 500 positions from No. 601 to No. 97. The North American player reached the final of the ATP 250 Newport Open in only his second main draw appearance in an ATP tournament. Michelsen also secured two Challenger titles, allowing him to finish the year as the youngest player in the top 100.
