Tennis - After winning Newport, John Isner is back inside the Top 20
3 ATP 250 tournaments marked the last week, and there were no leading players from the ATP list competing in either Umag, Bastad, or Newport, as they all prepare for the hard court season on the American soil. Andy Murray is still the world's leading player, standing at 7750 points, 285 ahead of Rafael Nadal, who refuses to play in Hamburg in order to pass Murray (could have done that by reaching the final).
Roger Federer, Wimbledon champion, is not far behind with 6545 points, with nothing to defend until the end of the season. Novak Djokovic is 4th, ahead of Stan Wawrinka, and the other Top 10 positions stayed intact from the 7 days ago.
Marin Cilic, Dominic Thiem, Kei Nishikori, Milos Raonic and Grigor Dimitrov are all the part of the elite company, and that will probably not going to change this week either.
Gael Monfils lost the points for his Washington title he won 12 months ago, and he slid from 13th to 16th, letting David Goffin, Tomas Berdych, and Pablo Carreno Busta pass him.
John Isner, Newport champion, moved from 21st to 20th, entering Top 20 for the first time since January. Mischa Zverev is 25th, which is his career-best ranking, and Juan Martin del Potro is back inside the Top 30.
After winning his maiden ATP title in Umag, Andrey Rublev became the only teenager in the Top 50. Full Top 20 list:
2. Rafael Nadal (ESP) 7465
3. Roger Federer (SUI) 6545

While Rafael Nadal sits atop the ATP rankings, his reign may not last much longer. No. 2 Roger Federer could still finish the year as the top tennis player in the world with the ATP World Tour Finals at O2 Arena in London looming.
It has been a fantastic year for both veteran stars, who have each won six titles and two Grand Slams after both failing to win one in 2016. Federer has 8,505 points and trails Nadal with 10,465.
On Sunday, Federer defeated Nadal 6-4 6-3 in the final of the Shanghai Masters. It was Federer's fifth win in a row over the Spaniard.
Nadal recently announced that a knee injury would force him to sit out the Swiss Indoors in Basel from Oct. 23-29. Federer could pick up 500 points in Basel, the city where he was born, and another 1,000 points for the Rolex Paris Masters from Oct. 30-Nov. 5.
The Nitto ATP Finals will take place from Nov. 12-19. Andy Murray, who won the ATP Finals in 2016, is No. 3 in the world and is followed by Marin Cilic at No. 4.
The biggest disappoint of the year has been Novak Djokovic, who is ranked No. 7. In July, the Serbian star announced he would be sidelined for the rest of the 2017 season due to an elbow injury that had forced him to withdraw from Wimbledon. Djokovic had won the ATP Final four straight years before his loss to Murray last year.
Stan Wawrinka has also seen a big drop in the rankings due to injuries. The Swiss star finished 2016 at No. 4 and is currently No. 9.
Following the 10th Monte Carlo Title competition earlier played, Nadal has climbed from his seventh position, thereby taking the 5th place in the Top 10 ATP Rankings. He beat off two position to become the World’s No. 5 in the tennis competition.
It’s a wonderful shuffle on the list as those on high ranking on the List are seen falling, while some of the persons down are seen making their way up, Nadal is a good example of one of those that made it up and from the rankings we can see him on the 5th compared to the position he was last time (7th)
So far, Nadal has 890 points less than Roger Federer and 1400 than Stan Wawrinka. Andy Murray Remains No.1 with 11,690 points.
Kei Nishikori loses two places to fall down to seventh position while David Goffin broke through from his thirteenth position to the 10th position, thereby making the List.See : Australian 2017: Serena Williams Beats Venus Williams to claim Title The Top 10 ATP Rankings
