Murray leapfrogs Federer in ATP rankings


Britain’s Andy Murray has jumped up to second in the men’s tennis rankings issued on Monday by the ATP while Serbia’s Novak Djokovic remains top of the pile.

Murray ended an eight-game losing streak by defeating Djokovic in the Montreal final on Sunday but he was already guaranteed to skip Roger Federer into third.
The Swiss rested last week ahead of a return at the Cincinnati event.
Djokovic leads on 14,265 points ahead of Murray on 8,660 and Federer on 8,065.
The only other change in the top 10 saw Rafael Nadal claim one spot to eighth with Marin Cilic dropping to ninth.
