Ed Corrie reached a career high in the ATP rankings last month, putting him behind only two British players: Andy Murray, the world number six, and James Ward.
Since September the 26-year-old, who started playing and Harpenden Lawn Tennis Club, has won three Futures singles titles, back-to-back trophies in Sweden and finished runner-up in five other finals.
His success saw him rise to number 215 in the world, his highest ranking since he started competing on the professional tennis tour in 2011. He has since dropped to 230 and now ranks as Britain’s number five.
His doubles ranking also shot up to 142, now 165, after winning 12 titles with Dan Smethurst, his partner at Wimbledon this year, and 10 others with different partners.
As a result, in January he will travel to Melbourne for the Australian Open for qualifying.
