Biggest movers: Tomic returns to top 100
Bernard Tomic bolted almost 50 places up the ATP rankings this week to return to both the world's top 100 and Australian top five.
Bernard Tomic is back in the top 100 for the first time in more than a year after his stunning victory at the ATP Chengdu Open.
The Queenslander rose 47 places to world No.76 and also returned to the Australian top five behind Nick Kyrgios, John Millman, Alex De Minaur and Matt Ebden.
Another big mover was James Duckworth thanks to his continued success on the ATP Challenger Tour, while Jacob Grills rose almost 200 places after his recent victory on the Australian Pro Tour in Cairns.
Several Aussie women also enjoyed big jumps in the latest WTA rankings after their success on the Pro Tour in both Cairns and Darwin.
Perhaps the most notable mover was Kimberly Birrell, the Darwin champ who jumped 48 places to No.259.
