Paris - Novak Djokovic consolidated his lead in the latest ATP world rankings released on Monday after beating Andy Murray in the Australian Open final for the second year in a row.

The Serb has now won the title at Melbourne Park six times, which is the joint record with Roy Emerson.

Roger Federer closed the gap on Britain's Murray in second place thanks to his run to the semi-finals, the Swiss improving on his third-round defeat to Andreas Seppi last year.

The biggest mover in the top 10 was David Ferrer, who has jumped from eighth to sixth. The Spaniard lost out to Murray in the quarters Down Under, which was one round better than he managed 12 months ago.

Gael Monfils took advantage of world number five Rafael Nadal's shock first round exit to reach the last eight, and the Frenchman jumps up eight places to 17th.

South Africa's Kevin Anderson dropped two spots to 14th after bowing out in the first round.
