Federer out of world top 10, Norrie surges after Indian Wells win

Must read

Former number one and 20-time grand slam champion Roger Federer has tumbled out of the top 10 of the world rankings released by the ATP on Monday.

The 40-year-old Swiss, who is currently out of action following knee surgery, fell two places to 11th. A change to the ranking structure during the coronavirus pandemic previously kept his position elevated despite his injury-hampered form.

It is just the 12th week in 19 years that Federer is outside the top 10 – it last occurred between November 2016 and January 2017 when he was also injured.

Serbian Novak Djokovic remains number one with 11,430 points and has an advantage of 1,8000 to second-placed Russian Daniil Medvedev.

Briton Cameron Norrie gained 11 spots to a career-high of 15th after winning his first Masters-level event in Indian Wells on Sunday.
