Melbourne VIC, Australia, 30 October 2018 |

Alexei Popyrin has set another rankings milestone after advancing to the second round of last week’s ATP Swiss Indoors in Basel.

The teenager qualified for the tournament and then won his first career tour-level match before pushing No.2 seed Alexander Zverev to two tight sets in the second round.

His reward was a jump of 24 places to No.150 – a career-high ATP ranking.

Challenger title winners Thanasi Kokkinakis (Las Vegas) and Jordan Thompson (Traralgon) also enjoyed big jumps this week.

On the women’s side, Priscilla Hon sits on the verge of the top 150 herself after winning the Pro Tour title in Bendigo – an ITF $60,000 event.

Hon vaulted 29 places to a career-best mark of No.156 and is now the new Australian No.5 behind Ash Barty (19), Daria Gavrilova (37), Ajla Tomljanovic (43) and Sam Stosur (72).

She has won 11 of her past 14 matches dating back to early September.

The woman she beat in the Bendigo final, Ellen Perez, cracked the top 200 for the first time after rising 36 places to No.178.
