Tennis 2013 Power Ranking: Dubai and Acapulco

Dan Martin’s 2013 Power Ranking #3

1.  Novak Djokovic – Nole is number one, and his strong showing in Dubai only underscores that point.

2.  Andy Murray – 2013 has brought Andy a Grand Slam runner-up finish and a 250 point title.  Still, it will be nice to see him in action again.

3.  Rafael Nadal – Rafa’s back-to-back titles coupled with Federer’s thus far shaky 2013 have him moving up the power ranking.   Change since last ranking +2

4.  Roger Federer – Roger does not seem like himself to this point in 2013.  Change since last ranking – 1

5.  David Ferrer – His loss to Rafa at Acapulco was like a continuation of his 2012 Roland Garros beating.  On the bright side, Ferrer reached two consecutive finals and won his first title of the year.  Change since last ranking – 1

6.  Tomas Berdych – A runner-up finish in Dubai has the Czech moving toward the top 5.  Change since last ranking +2

7.  Richard Gasquet – With two titles under his belt in 2013, Gasquet is poised for a strong year.  Still, he lacks the heft of Berdych or the consistency of Ferrer.  Change since last ranking -1 

8.  Jo-Wilfried Tsonga – Holding steady

9.  Juan Martin del Potro – He won Rotterdam and reached the semis at Dubai.  Nole seems to be his nemesis. Change since last ranking – unranked  

10.  Marin Cilic – He has had a nice 2013.  Change since last ranking – unranked

Biggest Movers – Rafael Nadal and Tomas Berdych +2

Dropped Out – Jeremy Chardy and Horacio Zeballos
