If the ATP’s regular season finished today Roger Federer wouldn’t be among those eight who qualify for the prestigious year-end Barclay’s London Finals. Federer, who hasn’t played since Indian Wells, slid to No. 9 in today’s released 2013 points only rankings.
Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray are still 1 and No. 2 with the Serb ahead by a sizable 1,400 points. Spaniards Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer are next followed by Tomas Berdych who’s is fifth.
Juan Martin Del Potro stayed at No. 6 followed by Jo-Wilfried Tsonga who climbed two positions to No. 7 after reaching the Monte Carlo semifinals. Just ahead of Federer is Richard Gasquet at No. 8.
Federer skipped Miami and Monte Carlo but is playing to defend his Madrid title early next month. And he did return to No. 2 this week in regular rankings.
Those players making big leaps were Fabio Fognini who rose 19 spots to No. 18 and Grigor Dimitrov who moved up 10 to No. 22. Both guys also made nice moves to career-highs in the regular rankings: Fognini up to No. 24, Dimitrov No. 28.
