John Millman continues to flourish, Sam Stosur inches her way back, and youngsters make their move in the latest release of the ATP and WTA rankings.
At age 29, John Millman continues to notch career milestones, cracking the top 50 for the first time.
The Queenslander rose two places to world No.50 after reaching the second round at last week’s ATP event in Bastad, Sweden.
