Second Serve


While the main focus of the international tennis fan base has been on the Olympics the past few days, there are still plenty of players not in London who used the previous week to increase their rankings. Among the men in particular was American Sam Querrey, who soared 19 spots to No. 38 in the world on Monday in the latest ATP release following his victory at Los Angeles, worth 250 points, on Sunday. While Querrey didn’t beat an opponent ranked higher than 72nd, largely because the main field is away in London, it was his first title since the same field in 2010, and another step in the comeback that saw him ranked outside the Top 100 as recently as three-and-a-half months ago.

The only player to have a bigger jump in the Top 100 was American Rajeev Ram, who climbed 24 spots to No. 93 in the world by reaching the Los Angeles semifinals, where he lost to Querrey.

In the Top 20, Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber climbed seven spots to a career-best No. 16 following his trip to the finals at Kitzbuhel, worth 150 points. Kohlschreiber is 36-17 on the season.

ATP Biggest Gains: Rajeev Ram (USA), +24 to No. 93; Aljaz Bedene (SLO), +20 to No. 83; Sam Querrey (USA) +19 to No. 38; Filippo Volandri (ITA), +19 to No. 80.

ATP Biggest Falls: Malek Jaziri (TUN), -9 to No. 79 Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR), -8 to No. 25; Marcel Granollers (ESP), -8 to No. 27.
