Miami - Andy Murray's win in the Miami Masters has pushed him back up to second in the world rankings ahead of Roger Federer and behind only Novak Djokovic.

The 25-year-old Scotsman, who defeated David Ferrer in the final in Florida, was last in that position in 2009 when Rafael Nadal stood at number one and Federer was third ahead of Djokovic.

The Serb remains comfortably in first position ahead of the claycourt season in Europe when Nadal, who has made a successful return from injury, is expected to once again dominate.

Monday's rankings represent the first time since November 10, 2003 that neither Federer nor Nadal has been in the top two.

ATP top rankings:

1. Novak Djokovic (SRB) 12 370 pts

2. Andy Murray (GBR) 8 750 (+1)

3. Roger Federer (SUI) 8 670 (--1)
