Tennis Rankings: Bopanna moves to 12th; Somdev, Yuki retain positionsIndia's Rohan Bopanna on Monday jumped four places to 12th in the latest doubles ranking chart. The soar in rankings was courtesy his title victory at the ATP Dubai 500 event.

Leander Paes, who was unchanged at 10th, continues to be India's No 1 player in doubles while Mahesh Bhupathi slipped further to 47, a loss of six places.

Divij Sharan (64) and Purav Raja (71) are the other Indian players in top-100. Both of them moved one place up.

In the singles, Somdev Devvarman (78) and Yuki Bhambri (146) did not find any change to their respective ranks.

In the women's rankings, Sania Mirza was placed at 11th.
