ATP Rankings — February 22, 2010
Fernando is back in the top ten this week, thanks to a little help from Julien Benneteau. Benneteau defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga last week in the semifinals in Marseille, and because Jo couldn’t defend his title, he slipped in the rankings. So even though Fernando didn’t gain any points from his first round loss in Memphis, he re-enters the top ten! Fernando also has no points to defend this coming week (he did not play between the Australian Open and Indian Wells last year due to an injury) so depending on how Cilic does in Dubai, Fernando could possibly regain the #9 ranking in time for Indian Wells!
