The November rankings bring some exciting changes, as Anna-Klara Ahlmer is back at World No. 1 for the third time this year. This month’s update also sees significant shifts in the men’s rankings, with Rene Lindberg making a triumphant return to the Top 10 and Holly Ranson is the new girls no 1 taking the spot from Alexandra Ogram.
Anna-Klara Ahlmer Reclaims No. 1 Spot
In the women’s rankings, Anna-Klara Ahlmer overtakes Stine Jacobsen to secure the World No. 1 spot. This marks her third time atop the rankings this year. Myriam Enmer stays firmly at 3, and Kirsten Kaptein, Flore Allègre, and Zuzanna Severinová also hold their position this month. Stephanie Chung moves up to World No. 7, Voge to No. 8, and Dara Ladner, who makes a return to the Top 10, securing World No. 9 as Olsacher slips three spots to World No. 10. Adeline Kilchenmann is knocking on the door of the Top 10. She’s climbed three spots to reach World No. 11 in the November rankings.
Men’s Rankings see some changes
Turning to the men’s rankings, the story of the month is Rene Lindberg’s remarkable comeback. After a brief drop out from the Top 10, Lindberg is back at world No. 9. Meanwhile, Morten Jaksland drops down to World No. 4. This marks Jaksland’s lowest ranking since July 2018, a noteworthy achievement in itself given the intense competition at this level. Leon Griffiths continues his run at World No. 1, while Sylvain Ternon retains the No. 2 position. Nicolas Lenggenhager steps up to secure the World No. 3 spot, overtaking Jaksland. Hougaard, Penttinen, and Vaclahovsky each move up two spots. Luke Griffiths has dropped down to World No. 10.
Holly Ranson tops the Girls junior rankings for the first time
Holly Ranson is the new Girls junior no 1 after she overtook Alexandra Ogram. This is the first time in her career she’s been on top of the rankings, after holding the no 2 position since January this year. This ends a very impressive 22-month run from Ogram on top of the rankings, who’s held that position since January 2022. There are no other changes in the girls junior ranking. Luke Griffiths and Florian Harca hold their position at the top of the boys rankings. Bastian Böhm overtakes Matthew Davidson and now sits at 3 which is his highest ranking so far. Matěj Volf overtakes Ross Wilson at no 7.
No changes at the top of the senior rankings
Duncan Stahl and Christian Schaefer firmly stay on top of the senior rankings. Martin Sopko is back at 3 as Christian Börner drops to 4. Nikola Mikac goes up to world no 5, whilst Manfred Grab and Graham King both move up two spots to world no 6 and 7 respectively. Bertrand Carleir drops to 8 and Mohamed Tarik Koubaa drops four spots to world no 9. Volker Sach goes up two spots to round up the top 10. The top four of the women’s senior rankings stay the same, with Jacobsen firmly at the top. Zuzana Vancuríková moves up one spot to world no 5 overtaking Katrin Maldre. Carola Von Heimburg and Jo Shelley both go up one spot to world no 7 and 8 whilst Esther Dübendorfer goes down to number 9. Alice Flatman goes up one spot to mark her first Top 10 appearance.
