TENNIS TUESDAY: #3-#4 Swap Places On WTA & ATP Rankings

Murray and Nadal Swap Places
Andy Murray moved up 1 spot to #3 in the World ATP rankings today following Rafael Nadal's surprising loss to Fabio Fognini in the semifinals of the Rio Open last weekend. Nadal fell to #4 and has yet to reach a final in 2015, let alone win a title. He is playing on clay in South America while the Top 2 seeds (and most of the rest of the Top 10) are in the Middle East at the Dubai Duty Free Open.

Halep and Kvitova Swap Places
Reigning Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova fell from #3 to #4, swapping places with Simona Halep. This weekend Halep won her second title of the year at the Dubai Championships by beating Karolina Pliskova, one of the hottest players on the tour right now.

Dimitrov Returns To Top 10
Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov re-entered the Top 10 by switching places with 2014 U.S. Open champ Marin Cilic.
