Indian tennis player Rohan Bopanna on Monday reached a career-high fifth place on the ATP World Tour doubles rankings, following his semi-final appearance at Wimbledon.

Bopanna, along with Frenchman Edouard Roger-Vasselin, reached the men's doubles semi-finals where they put up an intense fight against top-seeded Bryan brothers before bowing out of the tournament. Bopanna also reached the mixed doubles quarter-finals with China's Zie Jheng.

Commenting on the joy of his career-high while on a break from the tour, Bopanna said: "It is great to have been ranked fifth on the rankings ladder. It is an extremely proud moment for my team and myself, as this ranking is a true testament of the many years of hard work, focus and determination."
