Cape Town - South Africa’s Lloyd Harris has climbed 33 spots on the latest ATP World Tour men’s singles world rankings after back to back wins in Egypt over the past two weeks. 

Harris, aged 19 from Cape Town, won both $10 000 Futures played at the Soho Square tennis club in Sharm el Sheikh using his powerful serve en route to victory in both tournaments.

Harris standing at 6'4" served a total of 57 aces in last week's event. Harris, who was seeded two and one respectively in the two tournaments, lost only one set in the total of 10 matches played.
