ATP Tour Rankings Report: Sept. 11, 2017


The end of a Grand Slam typically means big rankings moves and career highs. 

And this US Open is no exception.


Roger Federer moves up to No. 2 with his quarterfinal effort, after not playing in New York in 2016. And Andy Murray, who missed it this year, drops to No. 3.

It’s Federer’s first time at No. 2 since May, 2016. He began the Australian Open last January ranked No. 17.

With Marin Cilic and Stan Wawrinka dropping down, young Alexander Zverev moves up to a career-high No. 4 despite his early exit in New York.

Here are some of the other moves.
