Paris - Eight-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal drops from No  4 to No 5 in the ATP rankings this week, swapping places with David Ferrer, the man he beat in the Roland Garros final.

Nadal only retained the ranking points he earned by winning last year's French Open, while Ferrer gained points by reaching his first Grand Slam final.

Ferrer joked after his straight-set loss to Nadal: "I prefer to win here and to stay No 5."

Novak Djokovic remains No 1 on Monday, followed by No 2 Andy Murray and No 3 Roger Federer.

French Open champion Serena Williams increased her lead at No. 1 in the WTA rankings, while the runner-up, 2012 winner Maria Sharapova, fell from No 2 to No 3, trading spots with Victoria Azarenka.
