Riding on his historic run at Monte Carlo Masters, Nagal jumped 13 places in the ATP Rankings.
He is now the seventh-highest ranked Indian man after Vijay Amritraj (career high of 18 in 1980), Ramesh Krishnan (career high of 23 in 1985), Somdev Devvarman (career high of 62 in 2011), Sashi Menon (career high of 71 in 1975), Anand Amritraj (career high of 74 in 1974) and Prajnesh Gunneswaran (career high of 75 in 2019).
However, veteran Indian player Rohan Bopanna lost the number one spot in doubles ATP Rankings to his partner Matthew Ebden.
The Indo-Australian duo was eliminated in the round of 16 men’s doubles in Monte Carlo after losing 3-6, 6-7 and (6-8) to Mate Pavic of Croatia and Marcelo Arevalo of El Salvador.
