Roger Federer is sliding in the ATP rankings, now down to No. 7.

Federer, who spent more weeks at No. 1 than anyone, already had reached his lowest spot in a decade by dropping to No. 5 after Wimbledon - and he fell two more places Monday.

Barring a withdrawal, Federer will be seeded seventh at the U.S. Open, where he won five of his 17 Grand Slam titles.
