New Delhi: When Somdev Devvarman was at the peak of his career in 2011, a shoulder injury put a brake on his ascendancy but the gritty Indian says he has taken the tough period in his stride and is now aiming to re-enter the top-100 by the end of this season.

Somdev re-established India on the singles map with his memorable wins on the Tour and in Davis Cup. That he was gradually becoming a force to reckon with reflected in his singles ranking when he touched a career-best 62 in mid-2011.

However, a shoulder injury late in 2011 and a resultant surgery in early 2012, hit Somdev's career graph badly.
