Indian Rohan Bopanna returns to top 10 after seven years
Rohan Bopanna, a veteran Indian tennis player, moved up two spots and entered the top 10 of the ATP doubles rankings for the first time in seven years. The 43-year-old Indian was ranked ninth in the world, his first appearance in the elite division since June 2016.
Bopanna, who missed the Davis Cup and a few other events last year due to a knee injury, ranked 19th at the start of the season. The highest position of his career is third in the world, which he achieved in 2016. He has appeared in 13 events so far this season.
When Bopanna and Australian partner Matthew Ebden won the Indian Wells Masters in March, they set a record for the oldest player to win an ATP Masters 1000 tournament. Ebden and Bopanna also triumphed at the Qatar Open of February and qualified for the month of May Madrid Open final.
Sumit Nagal, who won bronze at the Asian Games, is India’s highest-ranked men’s singles player with 256 points according to the ATP rankings, while Ankita Raina, who also won bronze, is India’s top singles player. She is also India’s highest ranked women’s doubles player at world No. 149.
