LONDON, July 30 (UPI) -- Sam Querrey and Robin Haase both returned to the men's tennis Top 30 with ATP victories last week.

Querrey jumps 19 places to No. 38 in the rankings after winning the Farmers Classic in Los Angeles. Querrey dropped just two games Sunday in collecting his seventh ATP championship, his first in nearly two years.

Haase won the Bet-at-Home Cup -- basically the Austrian Open -- for the second consecutive year. Those are also his only two appearances in ATP finals. He has reached a career-high of No. 33 in the rankings. He was 42nd a week ago.

The runners-up this week also made nice rankings moves. Philipp Kohlschreiber, who lost to Haase in three sets, set a career mark by moving to No. 16 in the rankings, up seven spots. Los Angeles runner-up Ricardas Berankis, a qualifier, is up 38 places to No. 103.

The Top 10 stayed the same this week with Roger Federer enjoying the No. 1 spot for a record 289th week. He has 11,075 rankings points, with Novak Djokovic close behind at 11,000. Rafael Nadal (8,905) and Andy Murray (7,460) are in the next two spots and David Ferrer is ranked fifth with 5,455 points.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (5,230) comes in sixth followed, in order, Tomas Berdych (4,515), Janko Tipsarevic (3,320), Juan Martin del Potro (3,180) and Juan Monaco (2,695).

Nine of the Top 10 players -- all but Nadal -- are entered in the London Olympics.

Mardy Fish, down two spots to No. 15, and Alexandr Dolgopolov, who slips eight places to No. 25 this week, are the top seeds at the Citi Open in Washington.
