The title win at the ATP championship in Mumbai has lifted Mahesh Bhupathi one place up to be at 24th spot in the latest world doubles rankings.
Bhupathi, along with Mario Ancic of Croatia, on Monday defeated Indian duo of Mushtafa Ghouse and Rohan Bopanna 6-4, 6-7, 10-8 to gain on the ranking ladder.
On the other hand, Indian Davis Cup captain Leander Paes slipped one spot in doubles ranking to be at the 10th place after he, pairing with Aisam Qureshi of Pakistan, went down to Bhupathi and Ancic in the Mumbai event last week.
Paes now has 3685 ranking points while Bhupathi has 1625.
