ATP rankings: Roger Federer back into top three while Novak Djokovic hits huge milestone
Roger Federer has moved back into the world’s top three on the day that Novak Djokovic celebrated 250 weeks at the top of the ATP rankings.
Federer has benefited from Alexander Zverev’s poor recent form, with the German hemorrhaging ranking points due to failing to defend his Munich Open crown.
Stefanos Tsitsipas has been rewarded for his Estoril title by climbing one place to ninth. Meanwhile, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s quest to reclaim his former standing continued at pace as he jumped eight places to 93.
