    Somdev jumps to No. 73 in singles ranking

    New Delhi: Reaping rich reward for his fantastic run at the Indian Wells Masters, Somdev Devvarman on Monday jumped 11 places to achieve his career-best singles ranking of 73 in the latest ATP list.

    Somdev reached the pre-quarterfinals in Indian Wells, eventually losing to finalist and top seed Rafael Nadal but not without giving a good fight to the world number one Spaniard.

    Rohan Bopanna, who along with Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi of Pakistan reached the semifinals of the doubles event at the same tournament, also improved his ranking by four places to 15.

    The Indo-Pak pair had lost to eventual champions Alexandr Dolgopolov and Xavier Malisse.

    Leander Paes (7) and Mahesh Bhupathi (5), however, remained static.

    In the WTA list, Sania Mirza broke back into the top-100 as she stands 99th in the singles list with a jump of eight places.

    This week Sania is seeking to qualify for the Miami event in the USA. She has been seeded 19th and will take on Chinese Xinyun Han in the first round.

    The doubles title win at the Indian Wells tournament helped Sania jump 21 places to 33.

    Sania and Elena Vesnina of Russia had beaten Bethanie Mattek and Meghann Shaughnessy in the summit clash.
