While Andy Murray ascends to No. 1, the idle Roger Federer continues slip in the rankings and today the Swiss fell out of the Top 10 for the first time since October 2002, ranking today all the way down at No. 16.
Federer hasn’t been ranked that low since October 13, 2002 when he was No. 13. That’s 734 weeks! Today, he dropped from No. 9 to 16 and that’s where he’ll finish the 2016 season.
Looking ahead, Since Federer is playing Perth and not Brisbane, Federer will lose his Brisbane final points so he will likely fall even further. So unless he makes a late schedule change, he may not even be a Top 16 seed at the Australian Open where he’s defending semifinal points.
Federer, who hasn’t played since Wimbledon, finishes the season with a 21-7 record in just seven events.
If you understand French, here’s Federer in a recent interview:
