ATPTour.com looks at the movers of the week as of Monday, 7th August 2023.

No. 21 Daniel Evans, +9 (Career High)
The Briton has risen to a career-high No. 21 in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings after he won the biggest title of his career at the Mubadala Citi DC Open, an ATP 500 event in Washington, D.C. The 33-year-old arrived at the tournament having not earned a tour-level win since April, but produced flawless tennis, dropping just one set across five matches as he defeated seeds Frances Tiafoe, Grigor Dimitrov and Tallon Griekspoor, who upset Taylor Fritz in the semi-finals.

No. 4 Stefanos Tsitsipas, +1
The 24-year-old captured his first title of the season at the Mifel Tennis Open By Telcel Oppo, where he defeated Australian Alex de Minaur in the final. The Greek, who is up one spot to No. 4, has now earned 10 tour-level crowns.

No. 42 Sebastian Baez, +30
The Argentine has jumped 30 places following his victory at the Generali Open in Kitzbühel. All three of Baez’s ATP Tour titles have come at clay-court ATP 250s, after he previously triumphed in Estoril in 2022 and at home in Cordoba in February this year. He had won one match in his previous five tournaments before arriving in Kitzbühel, but he dropped just one set — against top seed Tomas Martin Etcheverry in the semi-finals — en route to the trophy.

No. 84 Dominic Thiem, +32
The Austrian has climbed back inside the Top 100 after he reached his first tour-level final since the 2020 Nitto ATP Finals. Competing on home soil in Kitzbühel, the 29-year-old saved five match points in his semi-final victory against Laslo Djere.
