Felix Auger-Aliassime re-entered top 10 in the latest ATP Rankings on Monday after his title-winning run in Florence, Italy.

The 22-year-old Canadian beat American J.J. Wolf 6-4, 6-4 in the final of the ATP250 event to clinch his second tour-level title and moved up three places to 10th. Auger-Aliassime also kept his hopes of making it to the ATP Finals in Turin by staying at seventh spot in the race.

Wolf, who reached his first tour-level final, climbed up 19 spots to reach a new career-high ranking of 56.

Andrey Rublev won the other event on tour this weekend – the ATP250 tournament in Gijon – to move up one place and replace American Taylor Fritz as the World No. 8.

The 24-year-old Russian defeated American Sebastian Korda 6-2, 6-3 to clinch his fourth title of the season and 12th of the career. Rublev is sixth in the race to the ATP Finals.

Korda, who made it to his first final of the season, gained 11 places to become World No. 36.

The 20-year-old Italian Lorenzo Musetti moved up four places to a career-high ranking of 24 after reaching the semifinals in Florence. The other losing semifinalist in Italy – Mikael Ymer of Sweden – made the biggest jump (20 spots) in the top 100. Ymer is World No. 79 after an impressive run which started in qualifying.
