India's Prajnesh Gunneswaran climbed up to a career-best ATP ranking of 75 on Monday after his run to the final of the Kunming Open.

The 29-year-old went down 4-6, 3-6 in the decider on Sunday to Britain's Jay Clarke but the result was enough to see him break into the top-80 rankings for the first time in his career.

Prajnesh broke into the top-100 ranking earlier this year in February.
