Nadel Wins Cincinnati Open to Overtake Murray in World Rankings

Rafael Nadal beat John Isner in the final of the Cincinnati Open to climb to second place in the ATP Rankings.

The victory means that he has overtaken Andy Murray as the world No. 2 on the ATP Rankings. However, Nadal has said that he thinks Murray will find it easier to win a second US Open this year than his first victory 12 months ago.

In a recent interview Nadal said, “When you come back in a tournament that you already won, my feeling is it’s not a big, big difference. The only thing that is different and will help is you did it in the past, and when you did it one time in the past, it’s easier to do it again, because you know that you can do it. That’s all.”

At present Nadal is second favourite to win the US Open with odds of 3/1. Novak Djokovic is favourite with odds of 2/1 and Any Murray is third with odds of 13/4.
