Roger Federer Now Ranks Fifth in the World.
Roger Federer Now Ranks Fifth in the World.

Roger Federer has dropped to number five in the men’s world rankings, his lowest ever being fifth on 23 June 2003, two weeks before he won Wimbledon for the first of his record 17 Grand Slam victories.

After failing to see the second week of the 2013 Wimbledon, knocked out in the second round by Sergiy Stakhovsky, Federer, 31, has fallen two places.

First British champion since 1936, Andy Murray, 26, remained second, behind number one and runner-up of Wimbledon 2013 Novak Djokovic.

Rafael Nadal, who won the French Open, was a shock first round casualty at Wimbledon and now ranks fourth in the men’s rankings behind fellow Spaniard David Ferrer, who reached the quarter-finals.

Serena Williams was ousted by losing finalist, Germany’s Sabine Lisicki in the fourth round at Wimbledon, but stays number one in the women’s world rankings.

Marion Bartoli, 28, claimed the women’s title for the first time to move into seventh place, with Britain’s Laura Robson up to 27th. The 19-year-old British number one becomes the first British woman inside the top 30 since Jo Durie in 1987.

Meanwhile Encomium has been pouring in for Murray in the wake of his straight-set victory over Roger Federer at Centre Court yesterday. The British Prime minister David Cameron has fueled speculations that the Olympic, Wimbledon and US Open champion deserves a knighthood after achieveing his present feat.

Murray won the title with a 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 triumph over top seed Djokovic at the All England Club on Sunday.

“I can’t think of anyone who deserves one more,” Mr Cameron, who watched the match from the Royal Box said.

“(Murray’s victory) lifted the spirit of the whole country.

“It was a fantastic day for Andy Murray, for British tennis and for Britain,” he added.
