India's tennis star Sumeet Nagal moves up in rankings

Sumit Nagal, who notched 16 points after his impressive tie against Roger Federer in the US open, has furthered his ATP ranking with back to back good shows to 159 points, as released on Monday.

After back to back good shows, India's Sumit Nagal vaulted 15 places to achieve a career-high ranking of 159 in the latest Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) rankings, which was released on Monday.

Nagal, 22, went down in the summit clash of the Banja Luka ATP Challenger on Sunday. The Haryana boy had earlier made a first-round appearance at the US Open last month to become the only fourth Indian to win a set in the main draw of a Grand Slam in the last 20 years. After the US Open where he took a set off Swiss maestro Roger Federer before losing the match, Nagal had jumped 16 places.
