Taylor Fritz has become the first American in almost five years to be ranked in the ATP men’s top 10 due to his win in the Japan Open.
The 24-year-old rose three places to eighth in the rankings released on Monday following his victory over compatriot Frances Tiafoe.
Jack Sock was the last American to break into the top 10 in November 2017.
Tiafoe’s consolation for losing to Fritz is his highest ever ranking of 17th.
Spain’s US Open champion Carlos Alcaraz retains top spot despite losing in the first round in Astana last week.
