Karen Khachanov was ranked outside the Top 35 of the ATP Rankings just 12 months ago.

Khachanov Receives Top 10 Award

Russian celebrated in Halle for his milestone

Karen Khachanov has been rewarded for his outstanding form in more ways than one. The 23-year-old Russian cracked the Top 10 of the ATP Rankings this month and now has the award to go with it.

The World No. 9 received the ATP Award for reaching the Top 10 on Thursday at the NOVENTI OPEN. Khachanov, seeded third, is through to the quarter-finals in Halle after wins over Miomir Kecmanovic and Jan-Lennard Struff.

Khachanov’s outstanding finish to 2018 included his first ATP Masters 1000 title at the Rolex Paris Masters (d. Djokovic) and a title on home soil at the VTB Kremlin Cup (d. Mannarino). He has continued to excel in Masters 1000 events, reaching the semi-finals last year at the Rogers Cup and quarter-finals this March at the BNP Paribas Open. Khachanov also advanced to his first Grand Slam quarter-final this month at Roland Garros.
