Nadal stays top of ATP rankings as Federer prepares attack




Berlin - Rafael Nadal continues to top the latest world rankings released Monday by the ATP but Roger Federer could make a move on the number one spot this week.



 
Nadal leads on 9,760 points with Federer a close second on 9,605. However, the Swiss is playing this week at the Rotterdam tournament and with Nadal not in action, a run to the semi-finals would return him to the top of the pile.
The 20-time grand slam winner Federer would become the oldest man to top the rankings should he take the number one placing.
Lower down the top 10, German Alexander Zverev moved up a place to fourth ahead of Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov.
