Tennis: Nishikori reaches world 11th rank


Tennis: Nishikori reaches world 11th rankKei Nishikori inched within arm's length of the top 10, moving up two spots to a career best 11th after the ATP world rankings were announced on Monday. He has rewritten his own record as the highest ever ranked Japanese player.

The 23-year-old Nishikori became the first Japanese player in 75 years to reach the last 16 in men's singles at the French Open, but made an exit in the second round of the Gerry Weber Open in Halle, Germany, last week.

The Japanese ace is scheduled to appear at Wimbledon starting next Monday.
