Alcaraz, 19, world number 1

Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz won the US Open 2022 at the age of 19, his first title in a Grand Slam tournament, and at the same time took the place of world No.1.

Alcaraz becomes the youngest player to reach the top of the ATP since the rankings were created in 1973, a feat he owes to his victory in the final over the Norwegian Casper Ruud.

Aged 23, Ruud took 2nd place by gaining five positions.

Rafael Nadal, eliminated in the round of 16 of the US Open, retains his third place, just ahead of Russian Daniil Medvedev, who lost his crown after his elimination from the American tournament by Australian Nick Kyrgios.
