New Delhi: Indian tennis player Rohan Bopanna Monday reached a career-high fifth on the ATP World Tour doubles rankings, following his semifinal appearance at Wimbledon.
Bopanna, along with Frenchman Edouard Roger-Vasselin, reached the men's doubles semifinals where they put up an intense fight against top-seeded Bryan brothers before bowing out of the tournament. Bopanna also reached the mixed doubles quarterfinals 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."
