25 wins 25 losses year to date gets you into ATP top 30

Nikoloz Basilashvili, Kyle Edmund’s opponent in semi finals of China Open (500 event) will break into top 30 in world next week with a 50% win/loss record this year.

Nice point made by commentary on Sky that it’s so important for junior players to recognise that there is a fair share of ‘losing’ even at the very top level.
