Injured Federer slides further down rankings
PARIS: Former men’s tennis world number one Roger Federer dropped a further four places in the latest ATP rankings on Monday to 15th having exited the top 10 last week.

Whilst Federer falls there is a career-high ranking of 11 for Italy’s Jannik Sinner, who rises two spots on the back of his success in Antwerp on Sunday which was his fourth title of the season.
Indian Wells champion Cameron Norrie also reaches a career-best ranking, the Briton moving up another two places to 14.
