Wimbledon: Loss Drops Roger Federer To No. 3 In ATP Rankings

With his loss to No. 12 Tomas Berdych in the Wimbledon quarterfinals, No. 1 seed Roger Federer will fall to the No. 3 spot in the ATP rankings, his lowest ranking since November 2003.

Federer was ranked No. 2 in the ATP rankings coming into Wimbledon, but was seeded No. 1 ahead of ATP No. 1 Rafael Nadal due to his superior grass court results over the previous twenty-four months.

Federer is still defending champion points at Cincinnati, finalist points at the US Open, and champion points at the Australian. Any poor performance at one of those tournaments could see him drop to No. 4 or even No. 5, depending on how No. 4 Andy Murray and No. 6 Robin Soderling perform in the rest of this tournament and beyond.
