Dan Martin’s 2013 Power Ranking #2
1. Novak Djokovic – Nole is still in control.
2. Andy Murray – He’s posted a 19-2 match record at the 3 most recent Grand Slam events.
3. Roger Federer – Will Rotterdam move Federer into a tie for career titles with John McEnroe?
4. David Ferrer – Horacio Zeballos preserved Ferrer’s #4 ranking.
5. Rafael Nadal – A runner-up finish in his first event back on tour has Nadal in a holding pattern. He did not look rusty, but he lost for only the 5th time in a clay court final.
6. Richard Gasquet – With two titles under his belt in 2013, Gasquet is poised for a strong year. Change since last ranking +2
7. Tomas Berdych – He did nothing wrong, but the big man had to make room for Gasquet. Change since last ranking – 1
8. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga – See #7. Change since last ranking – 1
9. Horacio Zeballos – Anyone who beats Nadal in a clay court final gets some love. Change since last ranking – Unranked
10. Jeremy Chardy – His quarterfinal showing in Melbourne and semifinal in Chile land him in the top 10, but I would not bank on Chardy or Zeballos staying in my top 10 for long. Marin Cilic could easily occupy the 9 0r 10 slot for this ranking.
Biggest Mover – Richard Gasquet +2
Dropped Out – Juan Martin del Potro
Entered the Rankings – Horacio Zeballos
