Yuki Bhambri today jumped 11 places to stand just outside the top-100 bracket in the men’s singles rankings, following his runner-up finish at the Chennai Open Challenger tournament.

Bhambri had squandered a match point against Australia’s Jordon Thompson to settle for 48 ranking points and $4,240 in prize money. With this jump, Yuki is now ranked 101 and is followed by Ramkumar Ramanathan (140, +1), Sumit Nagal (216, +1) and left-hander Prajnesh Gunseswaran (242, -1).

In the WTA rankings, Ankita Raina continues to be India’s number one singles players at number 255, a loss of two places, and was followed by Karman Kaur Thandi (281, -3). In doubles, out of action Sania Mirza was unchanged at number 14 in the world.
