Andy Murray may have defended his gold medal at the Rio Olympic Games, but that didn’t help defy a plunge in his rankings.

With the Olympics having no ranking points on offer, Murray’s ranking was expected to take a beating as he had won the Montreal Masters title in the same week last year. The latest release by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) confirmed the same.

The Brit’s No. 2 position, however, remained intact. Murray did lose 1000 points from his last week’s tally of 10,065. But, with 9065 points in his kitty, he is well clear of the third-ranked Roger Federer (5945) of Switzerland, and only trails Serbia’s Novak Djokovic (15,440).

Meanwhile, the only other change in the Top 10 was Austria’s Dominic Thiem exchanging places with Frenchman Jo-Wilfired Tsonga to be ranked No. 9 and No. 10 respectively.
