With a slew of tournaments dropping off and one of the biggest events of the year being added, there are seismic shifts on both the ATP and WTA rankings this week, including a pair of Top 10 debuts.

Hubert Hurkacz makes his Top 10 debut on the ATP rankings this week, rising from No. 12 to No. 10 after reaching his third Masters 1000 quarterfinal of the year—and the fourth of his career—at Indian Wells.

He’s the second Polish man to break into the Top 10 in ATP rankings history after Wojtek Fibak, who reached No. 10 in 1977, and the fourth Polish player to reach the Top 10 in either ATP or WTA rankings history, after Fibak and two women: Agnieszka Radwanska (career-high No. 2) and Iga Swiatek (career-high No. 4).

Speaking of the women, Ons Jabeur also makes her Top 10 debut this week, rising from No. 14 to No. 8 after reaching her first WTA 1000 semifinal at Indian Wells. She was ranked No. 22 coming out of the Olympics in August, but she’s won 15 of her last 20 matches since then and is now the first Arab tennis player to reach the Top 10 in either ATP or WTA rankings history.

Hurkacz and Jabeur aren’t the only players setting new career-highs in the Top 10 this week. On the ATP rankings, Casper Ruud rises from No. 10 to a new high of No. 9, while on the WTA rankings, Barbora Krejcikova inches up from No. 5 to a new high of No. 4, and Maria Sakkari goes from No. 9 to a new personal best of No. 7.

Ruud and Hurkacz taking the No. 9 and No. 10 spots means that Roger Federer is out of the Top 10, dipping from No. 9 to No. 11. He had been ranked in the Top 10 for the last 224 weeks in a row since January 30, 2017, which was the day after he won his 18th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open (those 224 weeks don't include the 22 weeks the ATP rankings were frozen in 2020 due to COVID-19).

Meanwhile, the two players who went all the way to the biggest title of their careers at Indian Wells—Cam Norrie and Paula Badosa—both made their Top 20 debuts. They both went from outside the Top 25 to inside the Top 15, in fact.

Badosa, who was playing her first final at the WTA 1000 level or higher, surged from No. 27 to No. 13 on the WTA rankings after becoming the first Spanish woman ever to win Indian Wells. She beat Victoria Azarenka in the final, 7-6 (5), 2-6, 7-6 (2), stopping the former No. 1 from becoming the first three-time women’s champion in Indian Wells history.

And Norrie, who had never even been to the quarterfinals of a Masters 1000 event before Indian Wells, jumped from No. 26 to No. 15 after becoming the first British man to win in the desert. He beat Nikoloz Basilashvili in the final, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1—the Georgian had never even been to the quarters of a Masters 1000 event before his career-best run in the desert, either.

Badosa is now the No. 2 Spaniard on the WTA rankings after No. 5 Garbine Muguruza. Norrie is now the No. 1 Brit on the ATP rankings.
