A bittersweet defeat for Davidovich

  • The young local tennis star is up to 283rd in the ATP rankings after reaching the final of the Szczecin Challenger

Alejandro Davidovich made the largest jump of any player in the ATP rankings this week, leaping 117 places from 400th to 283rd, a career best so far.

This was possible thanks to reaching the final of the Szczecin Challenger on Sunday, losing out to Guido Andreozzi 4-6 6-4 3-6 in two hours and 17 minutes.

This run to the final earned him 80 ATP points, which edges him nearer to his target to end the year in the top 200.

As it stands, Davidovich is the 23rd best Spanish player, thought at 19 years and three months, he is younger than all of those above him.
