David Goffin has retained 13th place in the latest ATP World Tour rankings published today (Monday). Having had some rest last week, the Belgian number one begins his season on clay this week in the Masters 1000 where, in the first round, his opponent will be the Spaniard Feliciano Lopez, 23rd in the world.
The Belgian number two, Kimmer Coppejans, has lost a place and is now ranked 146th. Steve Darcis has gained two places starting off ranked 176th, as has Ruben Bemelmans, currently ranked 182th. Arthuur De Greef, a finalist in the Naples Challenger 2016 on Sunday, staged his entry into the top 200, being ranked 198th. Thus the grandson of the late Guy Thijs has won a good eight places at least.
Novak Djokovic still tops the rankings, before Andy Murray and Roger Federer who scoop 2nd and 3rd place. Having won the Marrakesh tournament, the Argentinian Federio Delbonis gains 11 places in the rankings. He is now 36th in the world. His compatriot Juan Monaco, who hit victory in the Houston tournament, starts ranked 62nd.
