Sumit Nagal achieved a new career-high of 80 in the latest ATP Rankings released on Monday after a solid performance in Monte Carlo Masters.

The 26-year-old Nagal beat Italy’s Flavio Cobolli and Argentina’s Facundo Diaz Acosta to qualify for the main draw. Only the third Indian after Vijay Amritraj (1977) and Ramesh Krishnan (1982) to feature in the main draw of the Masters event on clay, Nagal created further history as he became the first Indian to win an ATP Masters 1000 match on clay since the series began in 1990 after stunning World No. 38 Matteo Arnaldi of Italy in the opening round.

He eventually lost to seventh-seeded Dane and last year’s runner-up Holger Rune in three sets in the second round. As a result, Nagal jumped 13 places in the ATP Rankings. He is 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) since the introduction of the computerised rankings in 1973.

However, Rohan Bopanna lost the number one spot in doubles Rankings to Matthew Ebden, his partner. The top-seeded Indo-Australian duo was eliminated in the round of 16 in Monte Carlo.
