Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer has dropped out of the top 10 in the ATP rankings for the first time in almost five years, while Indian Wells champion Cameron Norrie jumped 11 spots to a career-high No 15 and Andy Murray plummeted to No 172.

The 40-year-old Federer shut down his season due to a knee injury after losing in the Wimbledon quarter-finals to Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz in July.

Hurkacz climbed two places to 10th after making the Indian Wells quarter-finals, knocking Federer down to 11th.

It is the first time the 20-time Grand Slam champion has been ranked outside the top 10 since January 2017, when he went on to win the Australian Open following a knee injury.

Norrie, who beat Georgia’s Nikoloz Basilashvili in the Indian Wells final, is now also the new British No 1. Norrie’s compatriot, Murray, fell 51 places to 172nd. The former world No 1, still on the comeback trail after hip surgery, lost to Alexander Zverev in the Indian Wells third round last week.
