New Delhi: Sumit Nagal on Monday achieved his career-best rank of 225 following a massive 96-place jump in the ATP singles rankings ladder, courtesy his sensational Bengaluru Open victory on Saturday.

In winning his maiden Challenger level title, Nagal had pocketed 100 ranking points.

Bhambri is followed by Ramkumar Ramanathan (137), Nagal (225), Prajnesh Gunneswaran (256), and N Sriram Balaji (372).

In the doubles, left-handed Divij Sharan, who won the doubles title in Bengaluru with Mikhail Elgin, also achieved a career-best rank of 47 with a jump of four places.

He is country's second-highest ranked player after Rohan Bopanna (18), who was unchanged.

The next best are Purav Raja, (60) Leander Paes (63) and Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan (102).

In the WTA charts, Ankita Raina reclaimed the status of country's numero uno player in the singles after gaining 16 places to be at number at 277. Ankita had reached the quarterfinals at WTA Mumbai Open.
