  Penguincw: Great tournament for Andre Nel at the Durban Open 2014, who gained a whopping of 102.4 rating points! Of course, being rated just 1889 and having a generous rating system does help, but 7/11 is still not bad (TPR 1992 though). No one else gained more than 38.2 rating points.

Despite being only the 48th seed and finishing 10th, it was countrymen Ryan Pierre van Rensburg who was the top South African at the tournament (and also top untitled player).
