New South Wales' Jordan Thompson will take a step closer to the top 100 after winning his first career ATP Challenger title in Cherbourg at the weekend.
Jordan Thompson has won his sixth – and biggest – professional title with victory at the ATP Challenger event in Cherbourg, France.
The 21-year-old Sydneysider overcame Czech Adam Pavlasek 4-6 6-4 6-1 in the final at the weekend.
The victory at the indoor hardcourt tournament will see Thompson improve his ranking to a career-high No.123.
It was his first victory in three Challenger finals; in 2015 Thompson fell at the final hurdle in Ho Chi Minh City and Traralgon.
