A day after the end of the ATP tournament in Tel Aviv, the new world ranking was published this morning (Monday).

The Israeli Idan Leshem made an impressive jump of 69 places - directly to the 377th place in the world. 

The 25-year-old Leshem did so, after having a great week to get through the qualifying stages, beating his Davis teammate Yishai Oliel in the first round of the main draw, but succumbing in the round of 16 to Kennedy and Ashek Pospisil. 

Oliel himself, dropped 20 ranking places because of points he had to defend from last year, when he was out of the first 400 in the world, and he occupies the 403rd place.

Daniel Zuckerman moved up one place and is currently ranked 455th in the world. 

The champion of the tournament, the Serbian Novak Djokovic remains in seventh place, but manages to shrink the points from the top group, when his opponent in the Croatian final, Marin Cilc, climbed 2 places and is ranked 14th. 

The top group is led by the Spaniard Carlos Alquers, followed immediately by his friend Rafael Nadal who jumped 7 places ahead.

In third place is the Norwegian Kasper Rood, fourth is Daniil Medvedev and the German Sasha Zverev rounds out the top five.
