ATP Rankings: Roger Federer Achieves Worst Ranking In 22 Years
Swiss tennis player and former world number one Roger Federer is now ranked 68th in the world in the ATP rankings after missing several tournaments due to injury, his worst ranking in 22 years.
The last time a Swiss maestro was so low in the rankings was in February 2000, when he was 18 years old. At that time he was at number 67.
He is currently ranked 68th with 850 points. At the top is Daniil Medvedev of Russia. Germany’s Alexander Zverev is at number two, while Novak Djokovic of Serbia is at number three. At the same time, Rafael Nadal remains in fourth place. Interestingly, for the first time in 19 years, none of the ‘Big Three’ – Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer – occupy the first two places.
Notably, the 103-time Tour-level titleist recently attended Wimbledon 2021. In August, Federer announced on Instagram that he would miss “several months” after knee surgery.
The Swiss star underwent surgery on his right knee in February 2020 and May 2020. Federer has played in five tournaments since those surgeries, all of which came in the 2021 season.
