Brayden Schnur achieves the biggest goal he has had in his career

Canadian tennis player Brayden Schnur will enter the top-100 for the first time in his career when the ATP rankings list gets updated on Monday. The Canadian, ranked at No. 112 in the world, claimed the crucial win on Saturday in the Winnipeg Challenger semifinal.

The 24-year-old needed to beat Daniel Nguyen to make the top-100 -- which he successfully did as he handed a straight-set defeat to the American 6-2 7-5. Per Mark Masters of TSN, Schnur described cracking the top-100 as "the biggest goal I have ever had in my career."

Schnur claimed the first break of the fourth game before he earned his second break in the eighth game to collect the opener. Schnur then won a highly inconsistent second set as he three times came from a set down before he earned the crucial break in the 12th game to set up a final meeting against Norbert Gombos.

Schnur, who started the season ranked at No. 172 in the world, experienced a notable ranking climb after ending runner-up at the New York Open as a qualifier.
