Yoni Erlich claimed his 18th career ATP Tour doubles title on Sunday, his first in more than three years, after triumphing with Britain’s Chris Fleming in Shenzhen, China.

The duo registered a 6-1, 6-7 (3), 10-6 victory over Andre Sa and Chris Guccione in the final, helping the 38-year-old Israeli climb 14 places to world No. 50 in the rankings released on Monday.

Erlich was playing in just his third tournament after missing almost two months of action following surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his knee suffered during his run to the Wimbledon semifinals with Philipp Petzschner. He was knocked out in the first round in both events.

Erlich won his previous title with the now-retired Andy Ram at the Serbia Open in Belgrade in May, 2012.
