Vietnam's No.1 junior tennis player Nguyen Hoang Thien has jumped from the 121st position to the 67th spot in the world's juniors rankings, according to the International Tennis Federation (ITF).

The 17-year-old Vietnamese boy's jump in the rankings was made possible by good performances last year and by the removal of players more than 18 years old from the juniors list.

Thien will fly to Australia on Wednesday, January 11 to compete at the Under-18 Loy Yang Traralgon Grade 1 tournament from January 15-20 before playing in the juniors competition at the Australian Open 2012 from January 22-28.
