Paris - Australia's Bernard Tomic climbed from 124 to 70 in the latest ATP rankings published on Monday on the strength of his second career win in Bogota.

The 21-year-old defeated defending champion Ivo Karlovic 7-6 (7/5), 3-6, 7-6 (7/4) in Sunday's final to add to his victory in the Sydney International in 2014.

Tomic's career had taken a downward turn since making the fourth round of the 2012 Australian Open, a decline which saw his ATP ranking slip from 27.

The only change in the top 10 headed by Serbia's Novak Djokovic involved Spain's David Ferrer, who jumped one place into sixth.
