Roger Federer dropped two spots to No. 5 in the latest ATP rankings, the lowest he's been since 2003.

Federer's stock took a hit after his stunning second-round loss at Wimbledon to Ukraine's Sergiy Stakhovsky. The 17-time major champion, who won the title last year, was knocked out in four sets.

The last time he was ranked so low -- June of 2003 -- was just two weeks before he won Wimbledon as his first major championship.

Andy Murray, who defeated No. 1 Novak Djokovic on Sunday to break Britain's 77-year drought at Wimbledon, remained No. 2 behind Djokovic, despite beating the Serb in straight sets.

Spain's David Ferrer moved up to No. 3 while Rafael Nadal, despite his first-round loss, was ranked No. 4.
