New Delhi: Rohan Bopanna achieved his career-best rank of 19 in the doubles ATP chart following his stupendous run at the US Open, where he won the runners-up trophy along with Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi of Pakistan.

Following his stunning show, Bopanna jumped 14 positions in the double chart and his team with Aisam is now ranked six in the world.

Bopanna and Aisam lost to American world number one Mike and Bob Bryan.

Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi's ranking suffered after a no show at the last Grand Slam of the year.

Paes slipped to eighth from sixth position and Bhupathi moved out of top-10 to be at 13, a loss of five spots.

In the singles, Somdev's first round loss at US Open reflected in his ranking as he again moved out of top-100 and now stands at 113, a loss of 15 positions.

Meanwhile, Sania Mirza also improved her WTA ranking by one place to 159.
