The last ranking update of the 2023 season and some exciting movements with some players. Leon Griffiths stays on top for a 9th consecutive month and Stine Jacobsen retakes the no 1 position from Anna-Klara Ahlmer for the third time this year as the two have been trading the top position between them.

Jacobsen looking to finish the season strong

Jacobsen finds herself on top of the rankings for the third time this year and is looking to finish strong as she and Anna-Klara go head-to-head in the Bombay Gymkhana International this weekend. Enmer, Kaptein, Allègre, and Severinová keep their positions as Dara Ladner goes up to a career-high of world no 7, overtaking Stephanie Chung and Nathalie Vogel. Adeline Kilchenmann is in the top 10 for the first time in her career, making some great progress this season from world no 28 at the start to finish inside the top 10. We can expect some movement in the January rankings with two tournaments in December, and it promises to be another exciting season.
