PARIS: Rafael Nadal has dropped three places to number seven in the latest ATP rankings released on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) a day after his defeat in the Madrid Open finals to Andy Murray.

It is the Spaniard’s lowest ranking in ten years as Serb Novak Djokovic, who did not compete in Spain, continues to dominate.

Murray holds third place after stunning nine-time French Open champion Nadal 6-3, 6-2 to win his second clay-court title in a week after Munich. The Scot closes in on Swiss Roger Federer who went out in the second round in Madrid.

Milos Raonic, beaten in the Madrid quarterfinals and Tomas Berdych, who made the semi-finals, each gain two places to sit fourth and fifth, respectively.

Japn’s Keiji Nishikori made a run to the semifinals in the Spanish capital, and drops one place to sixth.
