Andy Murray moved to third in the world rankings

Andy Murray has moved up to third place in the world rankings at Rafael Nadal’s expense. Nadal lost his first semi-final on clay for 12 years last weekend as Fabio Fognini saw off the Spaniard to book his place in the final of the Rio Open – which he lost to David Ferrer – as he dropped down a spot to fourth in the world rankings.

Murray was last in action when he crashed out of the Rotterdam Open 10 days ago in a defeat to Gilles Simon at the quarter-final stage – his first tournament since losing to the world No1, Novak Djokovic, in the Australian Open final last month.

The 27-year-old Scot is in the draw for this week’s Dubai Duty Free Championships where he is seeded third and takes on Luxembourg’s Gilles Müller in the first round.
