Federer Takes A Tumble In Tennis Rankings, Wimbledon Champ Rises

By Jim McCoy Mon 8th July SportsRoger FedererSerena WilliamsTennisWimbledon
Roger Federer has fallen to No. 5 in the new ATP rankings, the first time in a decade he's been that low. Federer's second-round loss at Wimbledon, a year after taking the title, drops him from No. 3. He was fifth in the rankings of June 23, 2003, two weeks before he won Wimbledon for the first of his record 17 major championships. Wimbledon champion Andy Murray remains at No. 2 in the new rankings, behind the man he beat for the Wimbledon title, Novak Djokovic. In the women's rankings, Serena Williams remains at No. 1 despite losing in the fourth-round at Wimbledon. Marion Bartoli, who won Wimbledon for her first Grand Slam title, moves from No. 15 to No. 7 in the WTA rankings.
