Tennis: Hubert Hurkacz climbs up ATP ranking

Hubert Hurkacz (ATP 52) won against Alex de Minaur (ATP 27) 6:3, 6:4 in the first round of the ATP Masters 1000 tournament in Madrid.

As a consequence, he will be classified in the top 50 of the ATP ranking for the first time in his career.

Hurkacz qualified to the main tournament by defeating two Spaniards: Marcelo Granollers and Roberto Carballes, paving the way for his debut in Madrid.

In the second round, the 22 year-old Pole will face the winner of the match between Borna Coric (ATP 13) and Lucas Pouille (ATP 28), whom he defeated earlier this year.
