Yuki Bhambri back in 80s, Prajnesh touches career-best rank of 169June 12, 2018
Top-ranked Indian singles player Yuki Bhambri today jumped nine places to 84 while Prajnesh Gunneswaran touched a career-best rank of 169 after climbing 14 spots on the ranking ladder.
Yuki had crashed out in the first round of the French Open but made quarterfinals at the Surbiton Challenger to gain 30 points from the two events.
The left-handed Prajnesh, who missed out on playing his maiden Grand Slam as ‘lucky loser’ at Roland Garros, has had a good first half of the season, winning his maiden singles Challenger trophy apart from an ITF Futures title.
The 28-year-old has also qualified for his maiden ATP World Tour event in Stuttgart.
Ramkumar Ramanathan lost seven places to be 128 and young Sumit Nagal dropped to 234 after losing 14 places.
