Nadal soars atop ATP rankings, Federer down to third

PARIS: Rafael Nadal soared 3,840 points ahead of his rivals in the latest ATP men`s tennis rankings released Monday, following the Spaniard`s victory in Wimbledon.

Nadal, who regained the number one spot after claiming the French Open title, now stands on 10,745 points, with Serbian Novak Djokovic leap-frogging Roger Federer into second thanks to his losing semi-final appearance in Wimbledon.

Federer`s fall to third place was the first time the Swiss player, who crashed out at the quarter-final stage in Wimbledon, has been out of the top two since November 2003.

The losing finalist in southwest London, Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic, rises five places to a career-high ranking of eighth.

Taiwanese Lu Yen-Hsun`s quarter-final showing there saw him jump 40 places to 42nd spot.
