Federer to reclaim ATP world number one spot

The 36-year-old Federer became the oldest ATP world number one in February when he beat Dutchman Robin Haase in the quarter-finals of the ABN AMRO World Tennis event. But in March, Spaniard Nadal overtook him in the rankings when he missed the Miami Open.

In January, Federer defeated Marin Cilic of Croatia to clinch his sixth Australian Open title and his 20th grand slam title.

Federer first became world number one in February 2004 at the age of 22 after his straight-sets victory over Marat Safin in the final of Australian Open.
