The Best Tennis Players of 2023 so far
We are already halfway through the 2023 season and are slowly getting to the end of the last Grand Slam of the year – the US Open. With its climax approaching, it is the perfect time for us to determine the top 10 most in-form players in men’s tennis. But before we get to the real part, let’s mention one player who didn’t make the Top 10 Tennis Players list, but is certainly an honorable mention.
The 24-year-old Spaniard is one of the surprises of 2023. Davidovich-Fokina has achieved some great results, proving to be one of the most consistent players throughout the season, reaching the 3rd round at Roland Garros, Wimbledon and the US Open.
Moreover, the second-best Spanish tennis player right now also played a semi-final at the Masters in Toronto a few weeks ago. He also quickly reached the top 25, climbing about 20 places in the world rankings in just under a year. At the moment he is occupying the 21st position.
Top 10 Tennis Players
10. Hubert Hurkacz
Hubert Hurkacz brought the level down a bit in 2023 compared to 2022 and 2021 but continues to be one of the most dangerous players on the tour.
His height and powerful serves have often saved him in difficult moments, and don’t be at all surprised when Hurkacz materializes his huge potential and reaches a Grand Slam final very soon.
He has had a solid 2023 campaign, winning the ATP 250 Marseille Open in February and reaching even higher levels in the second part of the season.
He played great tennis since the start of July, reaching the round of 16 at Wimbledon, as well as the semifinal of the Cincinnati Masters 1000. Unfortunately for him, Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz stopped him from going even further.
9. Stefanos Tsitsipas
After reaching the Australian Open final and the Roland Garros quarterfinal, the expectations for Stefanos Tsitsipas have skyrocketed, but he has failed to live up to them so far in the second half of 2023.
Recently, he suffered two 2nd round losses – at the US Open and Cincinnati, as well as a 1st round disaster class at the Toronto opener against Gael Monfils. However, the Greek won his only title this season at the end of July – at the ATP 250 tournament in Los Cabos, Mexico.
8. Alex de Minaur
Alex de Minaur is currently playing his best tennis ever, and his results are proving it. He played three finals this season – in Queen’s Club, in Los Cabos and at the Masters 1000 in Toronto, beating several top 15 players – Holger Rune (twice), Daniil Medvedev, Tommy Paul, Cameron Norrie and Taylor Fritz. The “Demon” also reached the 4th round of the US Open, losing to 3rd-seeded Daniil Medvedev.
7. Taylor Fritz
Since the end of Wimbledon, where he dropped out in the second round, Taylor Fritz has definitely found his best form playing on home soil.
The top American won the title in Atlanta and reached the semifinals in Washington as well as two consecutive quarterfinals in Cincinnati and the US Open.
In his last two tournaments, it was likely that he could have reached greater heights, but the draw put him on the same path as Djokovic. At the beginning of 2023, Fritz also won the Delray Beach title in Miami.
6. Alexander Zverev
Slowly but steadily, Alexander Zverev is starting to gain momentum and return to his best days after the terrible injury at Roland Garros 2022.
The start of the season wasn’t very convincing, but Zverev quickly found the right rhythm, reaching the semifinals of the French Open, the semifinals of the Cincinnati Masters, and the quarterfinals of the US Open.
The icing on the cake came in July when the German won his first title in nearly 2 years – the ATP 500 in Hamburg.
5. Andrey Rublev
Another competitor who finally seems to have cemented his status as a “top player” is Andrey Rublev. He has over 10 titles since turning into a pro, but this April he won his first Masters 1000 one – in Monte-Carlo.
When it comes to the results of the Russian, who is known for his aggressive style of play, his performances on the biggest stage are wonderful, but still lack a bit of confidence to break the “curse of the quarterfinals”. After losing to Daniil Medvedev at the US Open, Rublev has now made the quarter-final stage in 9 Grand Slams but has lost all of them.
In addition to the quarterfinals at the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open this year, Rublev also won the Bastad tournament in July and played finals in Banja Luka and Halle.
4. Jannik Sinner
The remaining 4 on the Top 10 Tennis Players list are without a doubt the best tennis players on the planet right now, and maybe for the last 2 years. First, but in a descending order, is Jannik Sinner.
The Italian is still very young but is one of the 3 top players of the new generation. Showing great maturity at such a young age, Sinner is already competing for the biggest titles and showing confidence and persistence in Grand Slams.
Recently he won the Masters 1000 title in Toronto after losing twice on Masters’ finals – in Miami in 2021 and 2023. Apart from that, he has also reached the semi final of Wimbledon and the round of 16 of the US Open.
3. Daniil Medvedev
Let’s ask ourselves one question – isn’t Daniil Medvedev the unluckiest player ever? With a sense of humor of course, but in fact, the Russian competed for many years with Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, and as it was seen that the first two were slowly retiring from tennis, Carlos Alcaraz appeared and took his “Top 2 player” spot.
Speaking of his success on the court, he has won the Rome and Miami Masters 1000 and reached the semifinals of the Wimbledon this year.
Right now he is preparing for his 2nd Grand Slam semifinal of 2023. Medvedev will play Carlos Alcaraz at Arthur Ash Stadium on Friday, hoping to qualify for his second US Open final since 2021, when he took the trophy.
2. Novak Djokovic
The record 23-times Grand Slam title holder will also play a semifinal on Friday, and Djokovic will probably have already qualified for the final when you are reading this – he will play the №47 ranked Ben Shelton, who, with all respect towards him, is not a proven player yet. Novak has had a solid 2023, participating in the most important tournaments for him.
He has a record of 38 wins and 5 losses throughout the whole season and has won the Australian Open, the Roland Garros and the Cincinnati Masters, as well as played a final at Wimbledon, where he lost to…
1. Carlos Alcaraz
The Spanish superstar is the most in-form tennis player in the world right now. With some exceptions, Carlitos has played at least a semifinal in every tournament he’s participated in this season.
The Spaniard has won 6 titles (the most of any player on the tour), of which two Masters 1000 and Wimbledon. Also amazing is the fact that Alcaraz finished his grass-court season undefeated, winning 12/12 matches on this surface. At Roland Garros, Carlos played Djokovic in the semis, but an injury prevented him from competing at the highest level. He also played the Serb in the final of Cincinnati, where the two had a nearly 4-hour, 3-set battle.
The most memorable of all tournaments in 2023 for Alcaraz will be Wimbledon. The Spaniard faced Djokovic again and deservedly won his first title at the All-England Club, being the more consistent of the two in the most vital moments.
