Tennis Power Ranking 2013: Post-Miami and Davis Cup

Dan Martin’s 2013 Power Ranking #5

1.  Novak Djokovic – Nole is number one, but he needs to rest his ankle if he is going to make an assault on Roland Garros.

2.  Rafael Nadal (Tie) – 3 consecutive tournament titles, including his first hard court title in over 2 years, have Rafa geared up for another European clay court season.

2.  Andy Murray (Tie) – Winning Miami along with his early results in Brisbane and Melbourne have Murray tied for #2 with Nadal.  Change since last ranking +1

4.  Tomas Berdych – He played well enough in Miami to stay at #4.

5.  Roger Federer – We’ll know more about where Federer’s game and health are when the clay court season ends.  

6.  David Ferrer – His runner-up showing in Miami leads to a gain in my not yet binding Power Ranking.  Change since last ranking +1

7.  Juan Martin del Potro – An early loss in Miami only costs the Big Man one spot.  Change since last ranking -1

8.  Richard Gasquet – He is quietly putting together his best start to any season.  Change since last ranking +1

9.  Jo-Wilfried Tsonga – We’ll know more after Wimbledon.  Change since last ranking -1

10.  Tommy Haas –  The old man of the tour reached the semifinal round in Miami by pulling a huge upset or two.  Change since last ranking – unranked

Biggest Movers – Andy Murray, David Ferrer and Richard Gasquet all gained one spot while Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Juan Martin del Potro both dropped one spot.

Dropped Out – Milos Raonic (despite some nice Davis Cup play) 

Entered the Rankings – Tommy Haas
