ATP Rankings: Roger Federer back at No 1, Kyle Edmund into top 20
It’s been a good week for Roger Federer, Kevin Anderson and Kyle Edmund in terms of the latest ATP Rankings.
Federer is back at the top of the world rankings for the fifth time in his career and he has reclaimed the No 1 spot from Rafael Nadal without lifting a racket in recent weeks.
With Nadal failing to successfully defend his Madrid Open as he lost in the quarter-final against Dominic Thiem, it means the Spaniard now finds himself 720 points behind the 20-time Grand Slam winner in the latest rankings.
Federer, who has again opted to skip the entire clay-court season, is top of the pile with 8,670 points.
South African Anderson climbed to a career-high seventh on the back of his semi-final run at the Madrid Open.
British No 1 Edmund will also be smiling this week after he moved into the world top 20 for the first time his career, coming in at No 19.
The 23-year-old beat Novak Djokovic and David Goffin en route to reaching his first-ever ATP Masters 1000 quarter-final in the Spanish capital. His excellent run came to an end in the last eight when he was beaten by Denis Shapovalov.
