Khachanov Receives Top 10 Award
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.
