Djokovic proud to be No 1

Novak Djokovic is delighted to be back on top of the ATP Tour world rankings after his second Wimbledon success.

Djokovic overtook Rafael Nadal to move back to the summit for the first time since September 2013 when he beat Roger Federer in five sets on Sunday afternoon.

His seventh Grand Slam victory also saw him become the first player to qualify for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals at the O2 in London in November.

"It feels great not only to win Wimbledon again but also to return to number one in the ATP Rankings," Djokovic said.

"I got to number one for the first time in my career after winning Wimbledon in 2011 so it is nice to do it again here.

"I can't wait to return to London to defend the ATP Finals title. I have had a good run there in the past two years. I really enjoy playing at the O2."

But the rankings brought more bad news for British No 1 Andy Murray, who barely keeps his place inside the top-10.

Murray went into Wimbledon as defending champion and his quarter-final defeat at the hands of Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov was always going to lead in a drop in the rankings.

He was fifth going into the tournament but now finds himself in 10th, behind Dimitrov.
