Tennis: Prajnesh Gunneswaran breaks into men's singles top 100

@SportsinAP
Prajnesh Gunneswaran has made it to the top-100 of Men's Singles Tennis rankings with a jump of six places that took him to 97. 


Prajnesh is the third Indian player to break into the top-100 barrier in the past decade after Somdev Devvarman and Yuki Bhambri. 


He reached the semifinals of the ATP Chennai Challenger last week to ensure his entry into the coveted bracket. If Prajnesh can maintain his rank inside top-100, it will secure him entry into Grand Slam singles main draws. 


In the doubles, Rohan Bopanna stayed put at 37 and was followed by his partner Divij Sharan at 39. 


In the Women's Tennis Association charts, Ankita Raina continues to be country's top singles player at number 165 after climbing three places in the ladder and was followed by Karman Kaur Thandi, who dropped a place to 211.
