Somdev back to top-100, Vishnu is second best in rankings
New Delhi: Somdev Devvarman regained his
place in the top-100 after improving his ranking by four
places to 99.
Somdev`s first round appearance at the Cincinnati Masters
following a succesful qualifying campaign earned him 35 points
and helped his cause.
Somdev rose to his career best 96 early this month but
his stay in top-100 was short-lived as he got out of the elite
bracket following a poor show at Washington event.
A semifinal appearance at the ATP Challenger event in
Uzbekistan helped Vishnu Vardhan take a huge jump of 58
places to 335, best rank after Somdev, in the ranking list.
In the doubles ranking Mahesh Bhupathi gained a place to
seventh after ending runners-up at Cincinnati Masters along
with Max Mirnyi.
Leander Paes (6) and Rohan Bopanna (33) were static.
