Veteran doubles stars Mahesh Bhupathi (5) and Leander Paes (7) were unchanged but Bopanna gained two positions to be on the threshold of top-10.

In the doubles team ranking, Paes and Bhupathi continue to be number two but Bopanna and his Pakistani partner Aisam-ul-haq Quereshi slipped to number seven from six.

Meanwhile, in the WTA charts, Sania Mirza was unchanged in singles (74) but improved the doubles ranking by gaining a place to 26.
