May Rankings | No changes at the top

Both Stine Jacobsen and Leon Griffiths are extending their run as the world no 1 in May. There has been some movement inside the top 10, with some points coming off for several players, and points for the women being added from the IWT Lausanne tournament earlier this month.

Stine Jacobsen stays at no 1 for a third month

Stine Jacobsen stays the world no 1 for another month. The gap between her and world no 2 Anna-Klara Ahlmer has reduced significantly with only 36 points between them after Ahlmer’s win at the Lausanne Open. Eisler, Olsacher and Ogram all moved up one spot in the top 10, as Seehofer-Krenn dropped to no9. Astrid Reimer-Kern stays at no 10. Meanwhile, Lausanne Open runner-up Marie Jaussein jumped another 24 places to world no 28 on this month’s rankings. It will be interesting to see if Ahlmer can close the gap between her and Jacobsen, as she is the no 1 seed at the Nordic Racket Games this weekend.

Leon Griffiths stays on top

Leon Griffiths stays on top this month after becoming the new world no 1 in April. The rest of the top four stays the same, as Schöpf moves up to number 5, Luke Griffiths jumps three spots no a career high of world no 6, and Bühler moves up one spot to no 9. Duncan Stahl stays at no 8, as Ternon drops two spots to no 7 and Lindberg drops three spots to no 10. We can some changes in the ranking next month, as most top 10 players will battle it out at the Nordic Racket Games starting this weekend!

Some movements in the senior rankings

Duncan Stahl and Christian Schaefer stay on top of the rankings, but Börner and Koubaa have moved up one spot each to world no 3 and 4. Mikac has dropped two spots to world no 5, whilst both Frank Kleiber and Martin Sopko moved up 3 spots back into the top 10 at no 8 and 9 respectively. Thomas Neupert also moved up 4 spots to round up the top 10. For the women Stine Jacobsen firmly holds her position as no 1, as well as Kaptein and Eisler at 2 and 3. Dübendorfer, Maldre, and Bramhall all moved up one spot whilst Jo Shelley dropped three places to no 7. The rest of the women senior top 10 stays the same.

No changes in the junior rankings

The junior rankings remain unchanged this month. This will be Luke Griffiths 11th month as world no 1, and a 17th consecutive month for Alexandra Ogram. Holly Ranson will be the only junior in action this month, as she received a wildcard for the women’s A at the Nordic Racket Games this weekend.
