Melbourne, Australia, 22 July 2013 |

Chris Guccione’s reward for winning his first ATP main draw match in two years was a rise of more than 100 places in the latest ATP rankings released on Monday.

The Victorian rose 109 places to world No.401 after reaching the second round of the ATP Claro Open Colombia in Bogota.

Guccione also won two matches to qualify for the main draw, and came within a whisker of upsetting eventual finalist Santiago Giraldo in the second round, falling 6-4 in the third set.

The left-hander stands to rise even further next week having continued his solid form in Atlanta – he is just one win away from another main draw berth after winning two qualifying rounds at the BB&T Atlanta Open.

Also making major inroads on this week’s ranking list was 17-year-old Blake Mott, who jumped a whopping 183 spots to world No.905 thanks to winning three matches to qualify for the ATP Challenger event in Granby, Canada.

Ben Mitchell’s incredible rise continued this week after he reached the quarterfinals of that same Challenger tournament in Granby.

The 20-year-old vaulted 37 places to No.254, meaning that in just four months, he has risen from outside the top 400 to his current mark.

He is now approaching his career-high ranking of No.209, set in February 2012.

On the women’s side, there was little change in the rankings; Sam Stosur remains Australia’s top-ranked player at world No.13.
