In the new ATP World Tour rankings, the two biggest movers are Roger Federer up 3 places to #5 and John Isner, way back up to World #10, leapfrogging Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Milos Raonic and Tommy Haas. Djokovic has narrowed Rafael Nadal's lead at the top to a mere 2230 points, which is about half of what the lead was a month ago. Federer's only 100 points behind World #4 David Ferrer and 600 points behind World #3 Stanislas Wawrinka so if he does well in Miami he should make up some solid ground.
On the women's side Simona Halep made history by reaching World #5 on the WTA, the first Romanian woman to reach that high.
