Prakash Amritraj's stupendous show at the Hall of Fame tennis tournament in US saw him attain his career-best ranking, moving up a whopping 101 rungs to 204th spot in the ATP chart issued on Monday.
Though Amritraj lost the final against Fabrice Santoro on Sunday, he gained 191 points and became the first Indian to reach an ATP singles event final after veteran Leander Paes, who won the championship way back in 1998.
However, Prakash failed to emulate his father Vijay Amritraj who won the title thrice.
Apart from Prakash, no other Indian made any impact in the rankings list with Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi holding on to their 15th and 12th position, respectively, in the doubles ranking.
Tennis ace Sania Mirza too remained static at the 33rd and 18th spot in the WTA singles and doubles chart respectively.
