Power Ranking for the Week of July 23 – July 29, 2012

Dan Martin’s 2012 Power Rankings for the

Week of July 23 through July 29

1.  Roger Federer – Fed has spent 288 weeks at #1 with at least a 289th week in the works.

2.  Novak Djokovic – Novak won bronze in 2008.  A gold medal would come with the #1 ranking.

3.  Rafael Nadal – Rafa holds #3, but his withdrawing from the Olympic Games is going to at least temporarily upset the well ordered world of the ATP Tour.

4.  Andy Murray – Can he return to the scene of his last near miss and win a medal for the Union Jack?

5.  David Ferrer –Ferrer won his 5th title of 2012.  He’s on his game and has a good shot at winning a medal in London.

6.  Jo-Wilfried Tsonga – Tsonga is the player in the best position to challenge the top 4.  He nearly beat Nole in Paris and made a solid semifinal showing at Wimbledon.

7.  Juan Martin del Potro – Delpo played well in his first three Wimbledon matches, but was dominated by Ferrer.  Concerns about the big man’s knees are real.

8.  Marin Cilic – A semifinal loss in Hamburg does not derail Cilic’s recent momentum.

9.  Juan Monaco – The Argentine followed up a runner-up finish in Sweden with a title in Hamburg.  Change from last ranking – New comer 

10.  Andy Roddick – Winning 2 of his past 3 tournaments has Roddick in my top 10.  Roddick has had enough success on grass that he is going to be a dangerous opponent at the London Olympic games.  Change from last ranking – New comer

New Comers – Juan Monaco and Andy Roddick

Dropped Out – John Isner and Philipp Kohlschreiber

Biggest Mover – N/A
