HÀ N?I – Vi?t Nam’s top tennis player Lý Hoàng Nam moved up five spots to No 630 in the latest men’s singles world rankings released by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP).
This is because of Nam’s impressive performance at the Japan F2 Men’s Futures, where he advanced to the quarter-finals.
The 20-year-old player has 44 points in the ATP world rankings.
Last November, Nam had become world No 610, the highest spot he has reached in his career so far.
In the Southeast Asia (SEA) region, Nam ranks second, behind 27-year-old Christopher Rungkat of Indonesia, who is world No 445. Rungkat won three titles at the SEA Games and used to be world No 241.
Other Vietnamese players also moved up in the ATP rankings – Nguy?n Hoàng Thiên rose nine steps to world No 1425, while Tr?nh Linh Giang moved up 19 places to world No 1634. — VNS
