1:15 pm on 9 July 2014

Novak Djokovic's win at Wimbledon has taken him back to the top of the tennis world rankings, while Andy Murray has slipped to number 10, his lowest ranking for six years.

27-year-old Djokovic replaced Rafael Nadal as the world's top player following his five-set win over Roger Federer in yesterday's final at the All England Club.

Federer returns to No.3 in the world, and a new name in the top 10 is Grigor Dimitrov at No.9, the first Bulgarian man to make the top bracket.

Australia's 19-year-old Nick Kyrgios, who beat Nadal in the fourth round at Wimbledon, has climbed 78 places to number 66.
