This week’s rankings are out and, as expected, the point difference between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer has gotten smaller. Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev switched places and now young German has risen to a career-high No. 7 after capturing his second ATP Masters 1000 title in Montreal.
Either Rafa or Roger will replace Andy Murray at the top of the standings on 21 August.
UPDATED: Rafa will replace Andy as the new world No. 1 next Monday as Roger pulled out of the Cincinnati Masters.

The ATP site has an article up about how the rankings could look by the end of Cincinnati Masters.
Rafa and Roger’s potential points in Cincinnati:
Rafa has spent 141 weeks at No. 1 (seventh most weeks all-time). He has three times finished year-end No. 1, most recently in 2013. He would already be No. 1 had he advanced to the semi-finals at either Wimbledon or Montreal.
GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
