Cape Town - Kevin Anderson reached a career-high ranking when the official ATP World Tour rankings were released on Monday.

The South African jumped three spots to No 5 after his heroics at Wimbledon where he reached the final before losing 6-2, 6-2, 7-6 (7/3) to Serbia's Novak Djokovic on Sunday.

Djokovic's fourth Wimbledon win propelled him back into the top 10, jumping 11 places to 10th in the rankings and ending an eight months top 10 exile.

Spain's Rafael Nadal remains top of the table and has widened the gap over No 2 Roger Federer, who was eliminated by Anderson in a marathon quarter-final at Wimbledon.
