Andy Murray and Mel South have both reached new career-high singles world rankings in this week’s ATP and WTA lists.
Murray has climbed four places to 31 following his run to the final in Washington DC last week.
The 19-year-old Scot beat Ramon Delgado, Feliciano Lopez, Mardy Fish and Dmitry Tursunov before falling to Frenchman Arnaud Clement in Sunday’s final.
Murray has seen his ranking rise from 64 at the turn of the year, largely helped by winning his first ATP title in San Jose in February.
British No.2 Tim Henman also moved four places up the ATP list to No.60 after reaching the last eight at the same event.
Surrey’s South consolidated her position as British No.2 in today’s newly-published WTA singles rankings.
The 20-year-old is up 26 places to a personal best of 175 after the points from her first ever $25,000 title in China a week ago were added to her total.
