Sumit Nagal falls out of top 100 in world men's singles rankings

India's veteran singles player Sumit Nagal has dropped 16 points from the top 100 in the world men's singles rankings and dropped three places to 101st in the new rankings. Nagal entered the Chennai Challengers semi-finals as a qualifier with 41 points and was looking to defend that mark, but could only muster 25 points at the Bangalore Open last week. Nagle has joined the exclusive club of some of the top 100 players in India by retaining the Chennai Open title this year.

Nagal currently plays for Pune Challengers. India's second best player in singles is Ramkumar Ramanathan, who jumped 42 places to reach 420th position. Then Shashikumar Mukund (457), S.D. Prajjwal Dev (595) and Digvijay Pratap Singh (623) are ranked in the list. Rohan Bopanna remains the world number one player in men's doubles. In doubles, Yuki Bhambri is ranked 60th, Sriram Balaji is ranked 80th and Saketh Myneni is ranked 89th.
