Again, sorry for the late update but here's this week's new rankings:
Rankings updated: 10/18. Lots of changes. Federer took back the #2 ranking. Djokovic fell to #3. Murray gained 1000 points. Roddick entered the top 10. Davydenko lost about 1000 points to completely fall out of the top 10. Lots of movement at the bottom of the top 10. One thing to keep an eye on is who finishes in the top 8 for the year end ATP World Tour Finals. Right now, the top 4 have qualified. The last 3 spots are close. Who gets it?
1 Nadal, Rafael (ESP) 11,880
2 Federer, Roger (SUI) 7,335 (+1)
3 Djokovic, Novak (SRB) 7,145 (-1)
4 Murray, Andy (GBR) 6,125
5 Soderling, Robin (SWE) 4,825
6 Berdych, Tomas (CZE) 3,715 (+1)
7 Verdasco, Fernando (ESP) 3,330 (+2)
8 Ferrer, David (ESP) 3,325 (+2)
9 Youzhny, Mikhail (RUS) 3,310 (-1)
10 Roddick, Andy (USA) 3,260 (+1)
Also, in the race for the #2 spot (thanks to Gibby for providing this)
Points to Defend Rest of the Year
Federer - 710
Discuss. Nadal has clinched the year end #1 ranking but do you think Federer finishes behind Djokovic (now that would be crazy)? Who qualifies for the year end ATP World Tour Finals?
I'll try to remember to update this every time a new rankings comes out, which is every Monday but I'm not sure if I'll remember. So if I forget, someone else can update this.
If you're wondering about how they do these rankings, it explains it here:
Wth, I'll post the Women's Rankings too.
Women's rankings also updated as of 10/18. No real changes other then a few people gaining and losing a couple points. No significant amount though.

Yeah, pretty much to keep track of Wozniacki.
Weird that Clijsters went down despite beating Zvonereva in the finals.
