Rafael Nadal is back at No. 1 in the ATP rankings, once again swapping spots with Roger Federer.
Rafa now leads Federer by just 50 points (8,770 to 8,720 points) in this week’s standings and will hold onto the top spot until at least 16 July. Our champ is only defending 180 points at Wimbledon, while Federer is defending 2000 after winning the title last year.
The current ATP rankings and point scores are as follows:
|4.||Del Potro Juan-Martin||Argentina||5080||19|
|8.||Anderson Kevin||South Africa||3635||22|
Rafa is still #1 in the year-to-date rankings.
Even though Rafa is world No. 1 player in the world, he will likely to be the second seed at the Wimbledon due to seeding formula.
Unlike the other three Slams, Wimbledon is not bound to follow the ATP rankings when it comes to seeding its own tournament by virtue of its status as a private club.
