ATP Rankings: Novak Djokovic maintains big lead over Rafael Nadal as Stan Wawrinka hits top 20 again
Novak Djokovic continues his stranglehold of the No 1 spot in the ATP Rankings as the Serb maintained his big lead over Rafael Nadal after the French Open.
Nadal secured a 12th trophy at Roland Garros on Sunday as he beat Dominic Thiem in repeat of the 2018 final, but he actually lost some ground of Djokovic as he is now 4,770 points behind.
Djokovic made up points as he went one better than his 2018 quarter-final exit while Nadal simply maintained his tally as he was the defending champion.
The rest of the top 10 remains largely unchanged with Roger Federer picking up 720 points after reaching the semi-final following a three-year absence at Roland Garros.
Karen Khachanov is up to career-best No 9 after he reached the quarter-final while Fabio Fognini is also in the top 10 for the first time in his career.
However, the biggest move came from Stan Wawrinka as the Swiss climbed 19 places to No 19 after making the last eight at Roland Garros.
