Federer drops out of ATP Top 10 for 1st time in 5 years

Swiss tennis legend Roger Federer on Monday (Oct 18) dropped out of the ATP world ranking Top 10 for the first time in nearly five years. Newly crowned Indian Wells champion Cameron Norrie, in the meantime, jumped 11 spots.

Federer, 40, has not played due to a right knee injury since losing in the Wimbledon quarterfinals to Hubert Hurkacz in July.

Poland's Hurkacz climbed two places to 10th after making the Indian Wells last eight last week, knocking Federer down to 11th.

It is the first time the 20-time Grand Slam champion has been ranked outside the Top 10 since January 2017, when he went on to win the Australian Open following a knee injury.

Norrie, who beat Georgia's Nikoloz Basilashvili earlier Sunday to become the first Briton to win the prestigious Indian Wells title, broke into the top 20 at world No. 15. His compatriot Andy Murray dramatically slid down the rankings, though, falling 51 places to 172nd. The former world No. 1, still on the comeback trail after hip surgery, lost to Alexander Zverev in the third round last week.
