Nadal increased his lead over Federer at the top of the Emirates ATP Rankings after winning his 16th Grand Slam title at the US Open, while runner-up Kevin Anderson has returned to the Top 20 on the back of his maiden run to a major final.

Nadal is on track to repeat that achievement during his resurgent 2017, with the Spaniard now holding a 1,960-point lead over Federer, who officially leapfrogs Murray into the No. 2 spot on the back of making the quarter-finals in New York.

Federer has no points to defend for the rest of the year, but Nadal is barely defending any points either after shutting down his 2016 season early due to injury, meaning he is in pole position to finish the year as World No. 1.

"For me, personally it's unbelievable,” Nadal said after the victory.
“After a couple of years with some injury problems, it has been very emotional since the beginning of the season.
"Since the Australian Open, I've been playing a very high level of tennis. Winning here in New York gives me great energy, because the crowd is unbelievable. They make me feel so happy."

The win was Nadal’s first title on hardcourt since 2014, while the 31-year-old has now won five titles in 2017 - the most he’s picked up in a season since 2013.

Meanwhile, it was a magical fortnight in New York for Anderson despite the disappointment of losing Sunday’s final, with the South African returning to the top 15 courtesy of making his first ever Grand Slam final.

Anderson initially broke into the top 10 two years ago when he beat Andy Murray en route to the U.S. Open quarter-finals, but numerous injury setbacks saw his ranking dip to as low as No. 80 earlier this season. The 31-year-old will rise 17 spots in the latest ATP rankings to No. 15, around 400 points off the top 10.

Speaking of the top 10, surprise US Open semi-finalist Pablo Carreno Busta has entered the game’s elite for the first time, climbing nine positions to No. 10. Carreno Busta became the first player in the Open Era to beat four qualifiers during his run to the U.S. Open semi-finals, while he also made the French Open quarter-finals and Indian Wells semis earlier this season.

Despite early exits, Zverev and Marin Cilic both hit career-high rankings of No. 4 and No. 5 respectively after Novak Djokovic (down to No. 6) and defending champion Stan Wawrinka (drops to No. 8) both suffered a rankings freefall after injuries forced them to end their seasons prematurely and miss the U.S. Open.

Kei Nishikori also experienced a big drop, crashing out of the top 10 and down to No. 14, while Milos Raonic also finds himself outside of the top 10. Sam Querrey, who backed up his run to the Wimbledon semi-finals with a quarter-final finish in New York, rises to a career-high mark of No. 16, while semi-finalist Juan Martin del Potro moves up four rungs on the rankings ladder to No. 24.

The ATP World Tour next moves on to the short Asian swing before switching to European indoor hardcourts to finish the season, with Nadal and Federer locked in a two-way battle for the No. 1 ranking. As it stands, both are scheduled to appear at the Shanghai Rolex Masters, beginning on October 8th.
