New Rankings – The King is Back
The rankings are announced, and Roger Federer is now officially number one in the ATP World Rankings. Congratulations! Now, besides Roger, there are other people who’ve achieved a higher rankings, and there are those who dropped. I will be reviewing these people, and as we go on we will review some of the Wimbledon matches.
First off, Roger Federer is now number 1, and Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal were demoted by 1 ranking.
- Roger Federer (+2)
- Novak Djokovic (-1)
- Rafael Nadal (-1)
- Andy Murray (No change)
The largest jump was from Brain Baker, an American tennis player. He was ranked 126 in the world rankings until he won many matches at Wimbledon and did lots of progress. He is now 76th place, jumping 50 rankings. However, he is now 27 years old, and I would say that the highest rank he could go up to is around the 30’s or 40’s. If he played like this earlier, he might of have been in the top 20’s or so, but I guess it’s too late. I found a very interesting article on Brian Baker, and I recommend it to who ever wants to know more about him. To view the post, click here. Note that the website is NOT a part of CLN.

The largest drop was from Michael Llodra, dropping 23 rankings from his original 54th place. He is currently ranked 77th place, which is one after the place of Brian Baker. Michael Llodra is a tennis veteran, and is 32 years old now. As for his sportswear, he is contracted with Lacoste, and his racket is from Wilson. He faced Andy Murray in the 2012 Australian Open, and there was quite a game in the second set. Here’s a video from that Australian Open match.
Besides that, Bernard Tomic fell hard as well, dropping from 28 to 45. Bernard Tomic faced David Goffin in Wimbledon this year, but was defeated with a score of 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4. Tomic was furious and broke one racket in when things started to go bad. He broke another racket when he made an error on his forehand on the opponents match point. He was received a warning for un-sportsmanlike conduct from the umpire.
