Following an extraordinary spell Down Under, which included the crowning of two new champions at the season-opening Grand Slam event, there have been significant changes made to the ATP rankings, ahead of the final week of January.
Stanislas Wawrinka will make his debut in the Top 3 for the first time in his career, after upsetting world No. 1 Rafael Nadal to win his maiden Grand Slam title. The win crowns him as the new Swiss No. 1, having usurped the title for Federer, who held the title since 2001.
British No. 1 Andy Murray, who is coming off a back surgery late in the 2013 season, dropped two places to No. 6 in the rankings, after failing to reach the final in Melbourne to defend his points. The Brit lost to Swiss No. 2 Roger Federer in the quarter-final stage of the event. The last time he was ranked at No. 6 was in August 2008.
Budding talent Grigor Dimitrov will make his debut in the Top 20 for the first time in his career, after reaching the quarter-final stage in Melbourne, where he ultimately lost to Nadal in four sets. His achievements in Melbourne have shifted in up three places to world No. 19.
