Biggest movers: Daria dashes up the rankings
As Daria Gavrilova entrenched herself in the top 40, John Millman reshuffled the Aussie order in the ATP top 100 while Jordan Thompson and Luke Saville made big pushes north.
Daria Gavrilova has continued her breakout season with a move well inside the top 40.
The Melbourne-based Gavrilova rose four places to world No.36 after reaching the third round at the WTA Rogers Cup in Toronto, a week that saw her upset world No.7 Lucie Safarova.
Gavrilova began the year ranked outside the world’s top 200.
Alexandra Nancarrow was also an Aussie enjoying a rise; the 21-year-old moved up six places to 392nd thanks to her run to the final of the $10,000 ITF event in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.
On the men’s side, Jordan Thompson was the biggest mover of the Aussies among the top 500.
The Sydneysider vaulted 26 places to No.214 following his win at a Bangkok Futures tournament two weeks ago.
He is projected to rise inside the top 200 when the next rankings are released, taking into account his second straight Bangkok tournament title at the weekend.
Luke Saville was another notable mover; the South Australian won a recent Futures title in Decatur, Illinois and as a result rose 25 places to No.195.
Inside the top 100, Bernard Tomic, Nick Kyrgios, John Millman and James Duckworth all improved their rankings.
The most significant of those movements belonged to Millman, who jumped 14 spots to world No.71 – leapfrogging Thanasi Kokkinakis to become the fourth-ranked Australian – after winning the ATP Challenger title in Aptos, California.
