No. 37 (Career-High) Matteo Berrettini, +18

The unseeded Italian upset seventh seed Mikhail Kukushkin and Rio Open presented by Claro champion Laslo Djere en route to the championship match, where he rallied from a set down to beat Filip Krajinovic.

No. 29 (Career-High) Laslo Djere, +4
Djere produced another impressive result on clay in 2019 with a run to the last four at the Hungarian Open. The 23-year-old defeated Ernests Gulbis, Jannik Sinner and fourth seed Nikoloz Basilashvili to reach the semi-finals, where he fell in straight sets to eventual champion Berrettini. With a 12-9 record this year, the Serbian rises four spots to a career-high No. 29 in the ATP Rankings.

No. 70 Nicolas Jarry, +11
The 23-year-old reached his first tour-level quarter-final of the season in dramatic fashion at the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell. After a three-set victory against Marcel Granollers in the first round, Jarry scored back-to-back final-set tie-break wins over the two most recent winners of the Nitto ATP Finals. The lucky loser saved one match point to stun World No. 3 Alexander Zverev, before eliminating Grigor Dimitrov to reach the last eight in Barcelona. Jarry jumps 11 places to No. 70 in the ATP Rankings.

The 27-year-old dropped four games to beat Pierre-Hugues Herbert in the semi-finals, before a three-set loss to Berrettini in the final. Krajinovic soars 28 positions to No. 77 in the ATP Rankings.
