Nadal reclaims ATP top spot as Federer slips

Rafael Nadal reclaimed top spot in the men's ATP rankings on Monday a day after Swiss rival and defending champion Roger Federer crashed out early in Miami.

Nadal, who hasn't hit a ball in anger since pulling out of the Australian Open quarter-finals in January, saw Federer take over top spot on February 18.

The Swiss veteran, however, slipped 10 points behind his Spanish rival and into second place after a second round defeat to Thanasi Kokkinakis. Towering American John Isner leapt eight places to ninth thanks to his eventual victory Sunday in the Masters 1000 event.

Isner thus equals his previous best ranking of ninth, reached in April 2012, while beaten finalist Alexander Zverev of Germany moved up one place to fourth.

South Korea's Hyeon Chung meanwhile continued to chip away at the rankings, the 21-year-old breaking into the top 20, to 19th, for the first time in his fledgling career thanks to his quarter-final appearance in Miami.

ATP rankings at April 2(change in ranking in brackets):

1. Rafael Nadal (ESP) 8.770 pts (+1)
2. Roger Federer (SUI) 8.670 (-1)
3. Marin Cilic (CRO) 4.985
4. Alexander Zverev (GER) 4.925 (+1)
5. Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) 4.635 (-1)
6. Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG) 4.470
7. Dominic Thiem (AUT) 3.665
8. Kevin Anderson (RSA) 3.390
9. John Isner (USA) 3.125 (+8)
10. David Goffin (BEL) 3.110 (-1)

Roger Federer , who lost to Thanasi Kokkinakis ranked 175th in the world, in Miami will not play at the French Open.

It was the first time since 2014 that Federer has lost back-to-back matches. He previously lost to Juan Martin del Potro at Indian Wells last Sunday.

“Every time I had chances, something bad happened,” Federer said of the loss. “Wrong decision-making by me, good decision-making by him. It’s disappointing. I don’t know why I couldn’t get to any level I was happy with today.”

Roger Federer said Thursday retaining his world number one ranking is no more than a "mini-goal" as he prepares his bid to defend the ATP Miami Open title.

The 36-year-old Swiss star needs to advance to the quarter-finals in Florida to hold on to his number one ranking, or face being supplanted by old rival Rafael Nadal in top spot.

However Federer, who was beaten by Juan Martin Del Potro in Sunday's Indian Wells final, said he is not attaching too much importance to hanging on to his ranking.

Juan Martin del Potro won the BNP Paribas Open 2018 title after beating Roger Federer 6-4 6-7(8) 7-6(2).

This was Federer's first loss of the year.

Federer, the defending champion, had chalked up 17 consecutive wins in 2018, a run which included his 20th grand slam title at the Australian Open, but was unable to outlast his determined 29-year-old opponent.

Del Potro was considered a genuine threat to Federer's dominance of the game when he won at Flushing Meadows in 2009 but has been dogged since by a series of wrist problems which almost ended his career.

Roger Federer extended his season win streak to 17 matches, booking his spot in the Indian Wells final by beating Borna Coric 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 on Saturday.

The 36-year-old Swiss superstar survived a stern test from world number 49 Coric but managed to hold on for a 17-0 record this year, surpassing his prior career-best calendar year start in 2006 when he opened with 16 wins.

"Borna was incredibly steady," Federer said. "Those 10 minutes when I was down a set and a break it was hard for me to accept.
