New Delhi: A semifinal appearance at the
Aptos Challenger tournament helped India`s ace tennis player
Somdev Devvarman rise back to his career-best singles ranking
of 103 in the ATP charts.

Somdev lost to Donald Young in the last four stage but
the effort was enough to jump two places up.

Yuki Bhambri, who has resumed practice after nursing a
broken ankle, has lost 14 positions to slip to 489th spot.

In the doubles chart, veterans Leander Paes (6) and
Mahesh Bhupati (7) kept their places in the top-10 while Rohan
Bopanna rose a rung to career-best 38.

Meanwhile, a struggling Sania Mirza gained a position to
be at 131 in the WTA singles chart.
