Tennis player Chung Hyeon moved up to a career-high 19th at the latest ATP rankings released on Monday. Chung jumped four spots from last week's No. 23, becoming the fourth Asian male player to crack the top 20 in the rankings. "I want to go higher," said Chung. John Isner of the U.S., who defeated Chung in the quarterfinals at the Miami Open in Florida last week, clinched the victory by beating Alexander Zverev of Germany in the final round on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Rafael Nadal of Spain reclaimed the top spot, putting Roger Federer of Switzerland into second place.
