Rising South African tennis star Lloyd Harris has reached a career-high ranking of No 87

The 22-year-old cracked the ATP Tour’s top 100 for the first time in February after winning an ATP Challenger event.

He has moved up seven spots in the latest ATP rankings after reaching the semi-finals of the ATP Challenger event in Ostrava, Czech Republic at the weekend.

In January, Harris qualified for the Australian Open where he lost in the first round to Russia’s Daniil Medvedev. He was playing in his second main draw of a Grand Slam, having also participated in last year’s US Open, where he lost in the first round to Frenchman Gilles Simon.

This week, the 22-year-old is playing in the Open du Pays d’Aix, an ATP Challenger event in France where he is the third seed.
