Roger Federer went past Andy Murray to climb to second spot in the latest ATP rankings. The move up the ladder comes right after the Swiss great defeated Rafael Nadal to clinch his seventh Swiss Indoors title on Sunday.
Federer defeated Nadal for the first time in more than three years 6-3, 5-7, 6-3 to claim the title. The last time Federer saw off Nadal’s challenge was at Indian Wells in 2012.
“It was one of my best weeks in Basel, considering everything I’ve done throughout my career here,” Federer was quoted as saying by Reuters.
“I thought the match was close. I had my chances in the second, but he fought back well, like he’s done throughout the week really. Overall, I was really happy how I played and it was a very special day,” he said.
Radwanska moves up
WTA Finals winner Agnieszka Radwanska climbed one place to fifth in the rankings. She beat Petra Kvitova 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 in Sunday’s final clash.
Serena Williams maintained her spot at the top in spite of not featuring in the WTA Finals in Singapore.
