Paris :

Rafael Nadal soared 3,840 points ahead of his rivals in the latest ATP men's tennis rankings released on Monday, following the Spaniard's victory in Wimbledon.

Nadal, who regained the number one spot after claiming the French Open title, now stands on 10,745 points, with Serbian Novak Djokovic leap-frogging Roger Federer into second thanks to his losing semi-final appearance in Wimbledon.

Federer's fall to third place was the first time the Swiss player, who crashed out at the quarter-final stage in Wimbledon, has been out of the top two since November 2003.

The losing finalist in southwest London, Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic, rises five places to a career-high ranking of eighth.

Taiwanese Lu Yen-Hsun's quarter-final showing there saw him jump 40 places to 42nd spot.
