Murray Rises to 3rd in World Rankings

ATP RankingsAndy Murray once again climbed to third in the ATP world rankings after he retained his Shanghai Masters title last week. He overtakes Roger Federer who he beat in the final last year. Federer chose to rest during the Asian swing and as a result loses his 600 points from last year and his position in the world’s top 3.

It’s the first time since 2003 that Federer has not been in the top 3 in the world.

David Ferrer, runner up in Shanghai cements his position as the 5th best player in the world opening up a 1210 point lead over 6th placed Robin Soderling, who has many points to defend in the upcoming weeks. Ferrer though is still over 3000 points behind Federer.

Mardy Fish and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga swap places in the rankings as Fish rises to 8th in the world and Andy Roddick climbs two placesĀ  to 13th after making his first quarter finals of masters event this year.
