Johanna Konta up to fourth in rankings, Andy Murray remains number one

Britain’s Johanna Konta has risen to a career-high fourth in the women’s rankings after Wimbledon, while Andy Murray remains men’s world number one.

Konta, 26, is the fourth British woman to break into the top five, following her run to the Wimbledon semi-finals.

She matches the achievement of Virginia Wade, Sue Barker and Jo Durie, the last British woman in the top five in 1984.

Murray, 30, lost in the Wimbledon quarter-finals but retains top spot ahead of Rafael Nadal.

The Spaniard could overtake Murray at the pair’s next tournament, the men’s Rogers Cup in Montreal, which begins on 7 August.

However, the Scot’s Wimbledon campaign was hampered by a hip injury and he has yet to confirm whether the recovery process will alter his plans for the rest of 2017.
