Bopanna reaches career-best 5th place on ATP doubles rankings
Bopanna reached the men's doubles semi-finals and mixed doubles quarter-finals at Wimbledon.
New Delhi: Indian tennis player Rohan Bopanna on Monday reached a career-high fifth place on the ATP World Tour doubles rankings, following his semi-final appearance at Wimbledon.
Bopanna, along with Frenchman Edouard Roger-Vasselin, reached the men's doubles semi-finals where they put up an intense fight against top-seeded Bryan brothers before bowing out of the tournament. Bopanna also reached the mixed doubles quarter-finals with China's Zie Jheng.
Commenting on the joy of his career-high while on a break from the tour, Bopanna said: "It is great to have been ranked fifth on the rankings ladder. It is an extremely proud moment for my team and myself, as this ranking is a true testament of the many years of hard work, focus and determination."
Bopanna, who started this year partnering American Rajeev Ram, renewed his partnership with veteran Mahesh Bhupathi, and won his only title of the year in Marseilles with Colin Flemming.
Commenting on the future of his partnership with Wimbledon partner Roger-Vasselin, the Coorgy player said: "It is too early to speculate, though Eduardo and I are in conversation on continuing this partnership given the great run we have had in the two weeks at Wimbledon."
After the break, the big-serving Indian is scheduled to hit the hard court season with the Citi Open in Washington before proceeding to the Masters Coupe Rogers in Montreal, Canada.
