German tennis maestro Alexander Zverev surged up by a place to stand at the third spot in the latest ATP men’s singles rankings released on Monday.
Zverer’s upward movement in rankings came after he made a semi-final finish in last week’s Monte Carlo Masters with a 4-6, 6-2, 7-5 win over France’s Richard Gasquet.
Third-seed Zverer lost to Japan’s Kei Nishikori 6-3, 3-6, 4-6 in the last-four of the tournament to crash out of the tournament.
Meanwhile, 16-time Grand Slam Champion Rafael Nadal continues to remain at the top spot and maintains a lead of 100 points over long-time rival Roger Federer after clinching his 11th Monte Carlo Masters title on Sunday.
Croatia’s Marin Cilic, who made a quarter-final finish at Monte Carlo, is standing at the fourth spot, while Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria completes the top five.
