Wang Hao and Timo Boll remain in the fourth and fifth place, respectively. Chuang Chih-Yuan exchanged places with Ma Lin and moved from the seventh to the sixth spot. Jun Mizutani hasn't participated in the last World Tour's events, but even so he climbed from the 10th to 8th place. 

Fang Bo, winner of the 2013 Austrian Open, was highly rewarded and moved from 74th to 24th spot. Taku Takakiwa also gave a big jump in the world ranking list for his victory over Zhang Jike in quarterfinals of the 2013 Austrian Open and went up from the 45th to 29th place.
