LONDON (AP) Andy Murray's Wimbledon title has allowed him to make a dent in the still-substantial gap in the ATP rankings between him and No. 1 Novak Djokovic, last year's champion at the All England Club.
Entering Wimbledon, Djokovic had nearly twice as many points as No. 2 Murray, 16,950 to 8,915. But after Djokovic's loss in the third round, and Murray's third Grand Slam trophy, the margin is 15,040 to 10,195 on Monday.
Serena Williams' seventh title at Wimbledon and 22nd at a Grand Slam tournament keeps her at No. 1 in the WTA rankings, while runner-up Angelique Kerber jumps two spots to No. 2.
