Nadal loses ground after French Open win
PARIS - Rafael Nadal may have won a record eighth French Open title, but that didn't help him in the men's rankings. The newly crowned, repeat champ drops from No. 4 to No. 5 in the ATP rankings, 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.
Novak Djokovic remains No. 1, followed by Andy Murray and Roger Federer.
French Open champion Serena Williams increased her lead at No. 1 in the women's rankings. Runner-up Maria Sharapova fell from No. 2 to No. 3, trading spots with Victoria Azarenka.
