Vietnamese tennis ace climbs higher above Nadal in world ranking update

Ly Hoang Nam climbed 14 places to stay 115 places above tennis legend Rafael Nadal in the update of ATP ranking this week.

Nam's performance in November helped him rise to 549th. The number one tennis player in Vietnam advanced to the quarterfinals in two out of three M25 tournaments that he attended last month.

This is not Nam’s career-high ranking, as he climbed to 231st in November last year.

Nadal, one of the greatest tennis players of all time, has barely played in a year due to injury. He dropped out of the top 600 last month as he was deducted 200 points earned in the 2022 ATP Finals, after failing to attend the tournament.

The tennis legend has not competed since he got a hip injury in the Australia Opens in early 2023. The 37-year-old struggled with treatment before going for surgery in June and missed the rest of the season. He has announced his plan to return one last time before retiring next year after a series of injuries in recent years.
