Novak Djokovic regains No. 1 ranking, Andy Murray drops to 10th
Following his Wimbledon victory, Novak Djokovic has regained the No. 1 ranking from Rafael Nadal while Andy Murray fell to 10th. Serena Williams remains the women's No. 1.
After defeating a game Roger Federer in five sets to win his first Wimbledon title in three years, Novak Djokovic regained the No. 1 ranking in men's tennis, swapping places with Rafael Nadal atop the ATP Tour.
Both Djokovic and Nadal, who have split the last two major titles, are miles ahead of the rest of the field with second-place Nadal with more than double the points of Roger Federer, who jumped back up to No. 3 with his runner-up at Wimbledon. The gap between Djokovic and Nadal, however, is less than 500 points (see the rankings here).
Nadal could have held the top ranking without Wimbledon had he survived a bit longer than he did but he was stunned, along with the rest of the tennis world, with his fourth-round loss to Australian wild card Nick Kyrgios.
The biggest upward move in the top 10 belonged to Milos Raonic. The big-serving Canadian moved up three spots to No. 6 after his semifinal run at Wimbledon. Meanwhile, Andy Murray plummeted after his straight-sets loss in the quarterfinals to Grigor Dimitrov. For Murray it was a lot of points lost given he won Wimbledon last year and gives him his lowest ranking in six years.
John Isner fell one spot to No. 12 but remains the only American male in the top 60 of the ATP rankings.
Despite another disappointing major exit, Serena Williams maintained her lead on the No. 1 ranking on the women's side with a healthy margin over No. 2 Li Na (9,510 points to 6,960). Wimbledon winner Petra Kvitova moved up two places to No. 4, right behind Simona Halep. Runner-up Eugenie Bouchard of Canada enjoyed the big jump on the women's side, moving to No. 7 in the rankings, one spot behind Marian Sharapova.
