Serbia’s Novak Djokovic has dropped out of the ATP ranking top four, for the first time since July 2007.
30-year-old Djokovic moved down one place into the fifth spot, paving way for Swiss Stan Wawrinka to go up into 4th position.
The Serbian could fall further downwards before the year runs out, after announcing that he will be out for the rest of 2017 Tennis season due to an elbow injury.

Djokovic retired from his Wimbledon’s quarter final match against Tomas Berdych earlier this month, due to the long term elbow injury.
Britains Andy Murray retains top spot despite failing to make the semi finals at Wimbledon earlier this month. Rafael Nadal remained in the second position, while Wimbledon Champion, Roger Federer claims the third position.
