Biggest movers: career-best marks for O’Connell, Inglis
Continued success for Christopher O'Connell and Maddison Inglis has seen the Australian duo hit career-high rankings this week.
Christopher O’Connell’s ATP Challenger title in Fairfield, California has pushed the Sydneysider to a career-high ranking this week.
O’Connell is now the seventh-ranked Australian man after jumping 43 places to crack the world’s top 150.
It was his second Challenger title and fifth overall in what has been a breakthrough season for the 25-year-old.
It’s been a similarly fruitful year for Maddison Inglis, whose final at the recent Australian Pro Tour event in Brisbane saw her rise to a best-ever ranking of 165th.
The West Australian stands to rise even higher — to a projected ranking of No.145 — once her victory at last week’s Pro Tour tournament in Toowoomba is factored into her ranking.
Inglis, who was ranked No.376 at the start of March, has won three ITF titles in 2019.
