The championship points from Roger Federer’s 2012 Western and Southern Cincinnati title fell off the computer today dropping tennis great Roger Federer to No. 7 in the ATP rankings, his lowest mark since November 3, 2002 (week of October 28, 2002).
Unless there’s a withdrawal from the Top 6, the 32-year-old Federer will be seeded No. 7 at the upcoming US Open. He’ll be placed in the 5-8 seeded bucket which means he’ll be slotted to face a Top 4 player in the quarterfinals.
Federer hasn’t been seeded this low at a Slam since being No. 6 at the 2003 Australian Open.
A year ago Federer entered the US Open as the Top seed and the World No. 1. Since then he has won just one title in Halle.
Earlier today, Federer visited the US Open tweeting out this picture:
