South Africa's Kevin Anderson has jumped 39 spots to 74th in the latest ATP Tour rankings.

This follows his win over 20-year-old American Jenson Brooksby in the Hall of Fame Open final on Sunday.

It was the 35-year-old South African's first title on grass - and his first ATP crown since the Pune event in 2019.

Since undergoing right knee surgery in February 2020, Anderson struggled on the ATP Tour but battled back last week for his seventh career ATP title.

Elsewhere, Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta and Norway's Casper Ruud, winners in Hamburg and Bastad respectively at the weekend, both climbed two places in the ATP rankings.

Former world number 10 Carreno Busta, who beat Filip Krajinovic to clinch his first ATP 500 title, climbs to 11th.

Casper Ruud, winner of the ATP 250 event in Bastad after crushing Argentinian Federico Coria, moves up to 14th, the best ranking of his career.

The top 10 remains unchanged, still dominated by Novak Djokovic.
