Roger Federer falls outside of the top four in the latest rankings following a disappointing Wimbledon display.

Roger Federer has dropped out of the top four of the men's world rankings for the first time in 10 years following his poor performance at Wimbledon.

The Swiss, who has won 17 Grand Slam titles during his career, lost in the second round at SW19 to Sergiy Stakhovsky that ended his defence of his Wimbledon crown.

Federer now sits fifth in the ATP ranking list, falling behind world number three David Ferrer and Rafael Nadal, who is fourth.

Andy Murray stays second despite becoming the first male British winner of Wimbledon in 77 years on Sunday when he beat world number one Novak Djokovic.

Federer began his 10-year unbroken stay in the top four of the rankings by winning Wimbledon in 2003.
