LONDON, Nov. 25 (UPI) -- The ATP's Challenger Tour wrapped up its season with wins by Matthew Ebden, Andrey Golubev and Marton Fucsovics.

Challenger Tour winners collect 80 points in the rankings and players can see significant moves in the rankings to better position themselves for main-calendar ATP events.

Ebden, winning in Japan, improves 11 spots in the rankings to 68th. Golubev is up 21 places and back in the Top 100 after taking the tournament in Russia at 82nd. Fucsovics, claiming the title in Italy, jumps 53 places to a career-high No. 180.

Rafael Nadal continues to lead the rankings. He's been No. 1 for the past 13 weeks. Nadal has a total of 115 weeks as the top-ranked tennis player in his three stints as No. 1.
