Federer Falls To #5 In ATP World Tour Rankings

As a result of failing to defend his 2012 Wimbledon title, Roger Federer falls two places to #5 in the newly released ATP World Tour rankings. He is replaced there by David Ferrer of Spain, who reaches a career high. Despite winning Wimbledon yesterday, Andy Murray is still more than 2,500 points behind Djokovic and since he won the US Open last year, Murray can not gain any more points by repeating his win so he will have to look at the hard-court Master series tournaments in Montreal, Cincinnati  Paris and China if the Scot wants to make  a real run at World #1.

Federer's rank is the lowest he has been on the tour in a decade (June 23, 2013), which was right before the Swiss great won his first of seven Wimbledon titles (and 17 major titles) a few days later.
