Roger Federer has climbed to No. 6 in the latest Emirates ATP Rankings following his incredible triumph at Indian Wells on Sunday.

Federer secured a record-equalling fifth BNP Paribas Open title with a 6-4 7-5 victory over countryman Wawrinka - his 25th ATP World Tour Masters crown and 90th career title overall.

“It’s been just a fairytale week once again,” said Federer on Sunday night.

"I’m still on the comeback. I hope my body is going to allow me to keep on playing. I was very sad when I couldn’t come here last year. Just being here is a beautiful feeling. It’s one of my favourite tournaments. I came here for the first time 17 years ago. So to be here again as the champion is an amazing feeling.”

Now the oldest Masters 1000 champion since 34-year-old Andre Agassi at Cincinnati in 2004, 35-year-old Federer is 6-0 against Top 10 players this season and is already back up to No. 6 in the world after starting the season at No. 17.

It’s the first time Federer has won the Australian Open and Indian Wells double since 2006, further highlighting the magnitude of his achievement.

Wawrinka was attempting to win a second Masters 1000 title after prevailing at Monte Carlo in 2014. The 31-year-old gained 510 points this week, increasing his lead at No. 3 over Kei Nishikori to close to 1000 points.

Due to the nature of the rankings system, World No. 1 Murray actually extended his lead at the top of the ATP mountain, despite a second round exit to qualifier Vasek Pospisil. Murray lost early at Indian Wells last year, so he only dropped 35 points, while World No. 2 Novak Djokovic - who was the three-time defending champion - lost 910 points after a fourth round defeat to Nick Kyrgios. As a result, Murray holds a commanding 3,090 point lead over Djokovic.

The tour moves onto the second Masters 1000 tournament of the season over the next fortnight, with the Miami Open taking place between March 20 and April 2. Murray and Djokovic have both withdrawn due to elbow injuries, meaning Wawrinka will be the top seed.
