Paris - Roger Federer's triumph in the Shanghai Masters tournament on Sunday has seen him back up to second in the ATP world rankings, the first time he has been that high since May, 2013.

The 33-year-old Swiss star is more than 3,000 points behind top-ranked Novak Djokovic, but he did have the satisfaction of defeating the Serb in straight sets in the Shanghai semi-finals.

Rafael Nadal moves down to third in the rankings with Australian Open champion Stan Wawrinka staying at fourth despite an early exit in China to Gilles Simon.

The Frenchman went on to reach the final where he lost to Federer and that was enough to hoist him up 11 places to 18th.
