Anderson makes his move up world rankings
- Updated: March 18, 2013
Our top-ranked tennis ace, Kevin Anderson has moved up eight positions in the latest ATP world rankings, writes Mark Etheridge.
This, after his excellent display at the BNP Paribas Masters in Indian Wells, California where he reached the quarter-finals.
En route to the quarters Anderson accounted for world No4 David Ferrer of Spain and Frenchman Gilles Simon (No13).
The 26-year-old Anderson has now moved up to 29th spot on the world rankings, one spot lower than his highest to date which was 28 (on two occasions).
His Californian success saw him make the highest upward move in the top 50, along with Finland’s Jarkko Nieminen who moved up to 49th spot.
Meanwhile our top-ranked women’s player, Chani Scheepers, dropped one position to 60th on the WTA world rankings.
