Hungarian tennis player Fábián Marozsán, who made the top 100 for the first time
Two Hungarian players are ranked currently in the world tennis top 100 rankings: Márton Fucsovics is 66th, and Fábián Marozsán is 91st in the latest rankings for men’s tennis, the first time in the latter athlete’s career to reach the top 100, reports Eurosport.
Both Hungarians have made huge strides, with Márton Fucsovics, who reached the semi-finals in Stuttgart last week, moving up 20 places from his last position, while Fábián Marozsán, who won the challenger-ranked event in Perugia, has jumped 22 places.
Meanwhile, Serbia’s Novak Djokovic, a 23-time Grand Slam champion, continues to lead the ATP rankings.
Regarding women, Panna Udvardy is the highest-ranked Hungarian player in the women’s rankings, up one place to 84th, while Anna Bondár is 106th, down one place, and Dalma Gálfi is 132nd, down 34 places.
In addition to Márton Fucsovics and Fábián Marozsán, Sándor Noszály, Attila Sávolt, and Attila Balázs have previously been in the top 100, with Márton Fucsovics the most stable.
The top 100 is an important threshold because it guarantees a place in the main draw at Grand Slam tournaments and it is also the point when a tennis player’s international career can make a tangible financial leap.
Previously, it was in 2021, when two Hungarians were on the list at the same time, Márton Fucsovics and Attila Balázs, but the last time before that was in 1985. So it is no small achievement to have two Hungarian tennis players in the world rankings again.
