New Delhi:

The runners-up finish at the Miami Masters failed to lift Mahesh Bhupathi's doubles standings in the ATP ladder as he remained static at 13th even as his former partner Leander Paes tumbled four spots to 24th in the list issued on Monday.

Bhupathi reached the final in Miami last week partnering Bahamas' Mark Knowles only to lose in the summit clash to defending champions and top seeds Mark and Bob Bryan.

The Indian ace has 3050 points now.

Paes, who partnered Australia's Paul Hanley, could only go as far as the quarterfinals where they lost to Bhupathi and Knowles. That performance has left him down by four spots with 1845 points.

Meanwhile, in the WTA rankings, Sania Mirza, nursing a wrist injury that forced her to pull out of the Miami Masters, remained static at the 31st position with 917 points.
