The atp tennis rankings

With the atp tour heading to London in the near future, it's worthwhile checking out the atp tennis rankings as an indication of the players in form at the moment.

With the table being updated weekly, it currently shows unsurprisingly Novak Djokovic top of the leaderboard with 13,500 points and Rafael Nadal close behind in second place with 11,420 points. British number one Andy Murray remains in fourth spot but the real mover in the leaderboard this week is undoubtedly Jo Wilfried Tsonga who has moved up a remarkable six places up to 10th.

The ATP tour is currently in Cincinnati for the Western and Southern Open and players like Tsonga will be hoping for more success to edge himself further up the leaderboard and continue this brilliant form he is experiencing at the moment.

The top 15 of the atp tennis rankings is listed below:

So there you have it. The top 15 players in the world currently are listed above and it may be no surprise to many with the most familiar names in tennis all occupying those elusive positions. With regard to players to look out for, Mardy Fish is good form currently and is certainly one to watch for the rest of 2011 and into 2012 with many pundits tipping him to challenge for a grandslam title.
