Murray supplants Federer at No. 3

FOR the first time in eight years, Roger Federer has fallen out of the top 3 in the ATP rankings.

Britain's Andy Murray moved from fourth to third in the new rankings released yesterday, with Federer dropping from No. 3 to No. 4. Novak Djokovic remains No. 1, and Rafael Nadal No. 2. Murray has captured three consecutive titles in Bangkok, Tokyo and Shanghai, winning 25 of 26 matches since mid-August. Federer, who hasn't played an ATP event since losing to Djokovic in the US Open semifinals, is out of the top 3 for the first time since July 2003. Also, Shanghai semifinalist Kei Nishikori became the highest-ranked Japanese player in the Open era, climbing 17 spots to No. 30.
