The Pak Banker - - MARKETS/SPORTS -

Saketh My­neni reached his ca­reer-best rank­ing of 158 while Yuki Bham­bri dropped to 107. A first-round exit at the Delhi Open, where he was de­fend­ing a lot of points, cost Yuki Bham­bri eight po­si­tions as he dropped out of top-100 to be placed 107 in the lat­est rank­ings is­sued to­day. The 23-year-old Yuki, who lost to Bel­gium's Joris de Loore, was a fi­nal­ist at the $50,000 ATP Chal­lenger event last year.

Saketh My­neni, though, made good progress as he gained eight places to rise to a ca­reer-best rank of 158 af­ter end­ing run­ner-up at the just-con­cluded tour­na­ment at DLTA Com­plex. Both Yuki and Saketh were sanc­tioned a fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance of Rs. 37 lakh and Rs. 36 lakh re­spec­tively last week by the govern­ment from the Na­tional Sports De­vel­op­ment Fund (NSDF).
