sports Updated: Sep 11, 2012 23:45 IST

Divij Sharan today broke into the top-100 in the ATP doubles ranking as he jumped 15 places to career best 94th spot, while Yuki Bhambri also achieved his career-best singles rank with a nine-place jump to 179 in the latest list today.

The left-handed Divij had reached the finals of the Shanghai Challenger event last week along with Yuki and the good show catapulted him to top-100. The 26-year-old Divij is a reserve player in the India's Davis Cup squad.

Federer to play against Holland
Zurich: Roger Federer has confirmed that he will play in Switzerland's Davis Cup playoff tie away to Netherlands at the weekend, the Swiss Tennis Federation said on Tuesday.

Federer will join Stanislas Wawrinka, Marco Chiudinelli and debutant Henri Laaksonen as the Swiss try to keep their place in the world group.

Federer has made irregular Davis Cup appearances, playing 21 ties since 1999, and two years ago faced some rare criticism in his homeland when he pulled out of a tie in Kazakhstan at the last minute, shortly after the US Open.
