Roger Federer back to #2 in the world courtesy of countryman Wawrinka

MONTE CARLO, Monaco, April 18, 2013 (AFP) - Roger Federer will return to second in the ATP standings next week after Andy Murray collapsed to a 6-1, 6-2 third-round loss to Stanislas Wawrinka at the Monte Carlo Masters on Thursday.

A shell-shocked Murray committed 24 unforced errors as he lost to Federer's Swiss compatriot, seeded 13th, in 58 minutes.

Murray, a quarter-finalist here a year ago, went nil for two on break points and lost his own serve five times in the route which sends him back to the practise court for the next fortnight in hopes of repairing his game for the Madrid Masters in early May.
