HA NOI (VNS) — Viet Nam's Ly Hoang Nam jumped two spots to 12th in the world junior rankings, after his entry into the 56° Trofeo Bonfiglio clay-court tournament's quarter-finals in Italy last week.
It is the highest rank for the Tay Ninh Province-born player as well as Viet Nam.
Nam will take part in the junior competition of the French Open, to be held from May 31 to June 6 in Paris.
As he is busy preparing for the second Grand Slam of the year, Nam has been allowed to withdraw from the Southeast Asian Games in Singapore. — VNS
