Junior ranking movers: Camus, Taylor climb after winning ITF titles in Sydney
Charlie Camus and Lily Taylor have made significant ranking rises after winning ITF J200 singles titles at the Oceania Regional Junior Championships.
Charlie Camus has reclaimed the Australian No.1 position in the latest ITF World Tennis Tour junior rankings.
The 16-year-old from Canberra rises 11 spots to world No.44 after winning the biggest ITF junior singles title of his career at the Oceania Regional Junior Championships in Sydney.
Camus scored a 3-6 6-3 6-2 victory against defending champion Hayden Jones, a 16-year-old from the Gold Coast, in the ITF J200 final. The all-Australian showdown was a rematch of last year’s final.
Pavle Marinkov, a 17-year-old from New South Wales, climbs to a career-high world No.63 after his semifinal run in Sydney. Marinkov also teamed with Camus to win the doubles title.
Cruz Hewitt, the son of former world No.1 Lleyton, is also at a new career-high. The 14-year-old, who is the 11th highest-ranked 2008-born boy in the world, rises 68 spots to world No.376 after his third-round singles appearance in Sydney.
