Three Australians inside the world’s top 100 – Max Purcell, Thanasi Kokkinakis and Rinky Hijikata – are at new career-highs in the latest ATP Tour men’s singles rankings.

The 25-year-old Purcell, who was ranked outside the world’s top 200 in February, makes his top-40 debut.

Kokkinakis improves one spot to world No.68. This betters the 27-year-old’s previous best of world No.69, achieved in June 2015.

The 22-year-old Hijikata jumps up five spots to world No.70 after scoring his career-first top-50 win at the Shanghai Masters.

Rising stars 24-year-old Adam Walton (up 22 places to world No.177), 22-year-old Tristan Schoolkate (up 25 spots to world No.247) and 20-year-old Philip Sekulic (up 21 places to world No.277) are also at new career-highs this week.
