Roger Federer is still No. 1 in Monday's rankings. Murray's
Rogers Cup title in Montreal last week moved him up to No. 2 for
the first time, while Nadal is now No. 3 after being ranked No. 1
from August 2008 through June 2009.
Murray took the court for Sunday's Rogers Cup final, knowing no matter what the result he would be soon be ranked No. 2 in the world.
Not satisfied having reached that goal, Murray withstood his toughest test of the tournament and defeated Juan Martin Del Potro 6-7 (4), 7-6 (3), 6-1.
"I love winning tournaments, it's great, and every player will tell you the same thing," Murray said.
"But it's tough because I've never been to No. 2 in the world before, so that's new to me. I've won a couple of Masters Series [events] now, and it still feels great. But getting to No. 2, maybe because it's something different it means a little bit more."
