Roger Federer's eighth Wimbledon title has pushed him up two spots and back to world No 3 in the ATP rankings after he ended last season as low as 16th.

Andy Murray remains top of the rankings but is now just 305 points ahead of Rafael Nadal. The British tennis star dropped significant ranking points after failing to defend his Wimbledon title while Nadal made gains as he didn't compete in 2016.

Federer is a further 900 points back but has a good chance of ending the season at the top of the pile if he can continue to form he displayed in SW19. He has spent 302 weeks as No 1 throughout his career, more than any player in history.

Jo Konta has broken into the world's top four for the first time following her run to the semi-finals. The Brit beat world No 2 Simona Halep en route to the final four, denying the Romanian her chance of topping the pile in the process.

Karolina Pliskova becomes the 23rd woman to be ranked No 1, a debut guaranteed last week, based on results at Wimbledon.

She had been No 3, and swaps positions with former No 1 Angelique Kerber.

Serena Williams has not competed since January because she is pregnant, and by losing rankings points she earned last year by winning Wimbledon and reaching the French Open final, she drops to No 15, out of the top 10 for the first time since April 1, 2012.
