Max Hopp has climbed eight places to 40th in the main PDC Order of Merit following his ground-breaking triumph at the German Darts Open last weekend.

After enduring a frustrating 2017 campaign which ended in him failing to qualify for the World Championship, the 21-year-old has bounced back superbly this term and made history by claiming European Tour glory in Saarbrucken.

Hopp, who defeated Michael Smith 8-7 in the final with a 121 checkout on the bull in the deciding leg, scooped the biggest paycheque of his career (£25,000) and climbed from 48th to 40th in the rankings as a result.

The victory will also secure Hopp a dream debut in July's World Matchplay, as well as a place in the World Grand Prix and potentially November's Grand Slam of Darts.

Smith's run to the final saw him leapfrog James Wade back into ninth, while Gerwyn Price moves above Raymond van Barneveld into eleventh. 

Darren Webster remains on the coattails of Benito van de Pas for a place in the world's top 16 for the first time, while Jelle Klaasen and Joe Cullen also in hot pursuit.

Other notable movers include Luke Humphries, last year's Development Tour winner, who climbs from 95th to 89th, while resurgent left-hander Alan Tabern is up from 98th to 87th.
