Edmund closes in on ATP top 20 ranking

Briton Kyle Edmund rose three places to 23 in the ATP world rankings released on Monday following a run to the final in Marrakech last week. The only move in the top 20 saw Spain’s Roberto Bautista swap 16th and 17th places with American Jack Sock. Rafael Nadal retains the world number one spot but has a lot of points to defend before the French Open starts next month, starting with this week in Monte Carlo.

Last year he won titles in Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Madrid and a failure to record a clean sweep again this year could give number two Roger Federer the chance to reclaim top spot.
