Novak Djokovic is still No. 1 in both the 52 week rankings and current 2013 race, though the Serb’s edge over Andy Murray in the latter is just 360 points. But the big ranking story after Miami was Murray is now ahead of both Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal and that both Federer and Nadal are missing from the Top 2 for the first time since the week of November 10, 2003!
But is the transition complete? Are the days of Federer-Nadal being in the Top 2 over?
Unless Djokovic loses his way, there will be only room for one more in the Top 2. Federer hasn’t won a title since last August and at 31 his best days are behind him. Nadal is still fighting knee concerns while Murray hasn’t shown much in the way of dominance since his big 2012 summer run.
Current ATP Race standings as of April 1:
1 Djokovic, Novak (SRB), 2,990
2 Murray, Andy (GBR), 2,630
3 Ferrer, David (ESP), 2,370
4 Nadal, Rafael (ESP), 1,900
5 Berdych, Tomas (CZE), 1,550
6 Del Potro, Juan Martin (ARG), 1,425
7 Gasquet, Richard (FRA), 1,215
