Rafael Nadal might have won a 12th Roland Garros title on the weekend, but he remains well behind world number one Novak Djokovic, a semi-finalist in Paris, in ATP rankings released on Monday. Austrian Dominic Thiem, whom Rafael Nadal beat in Sunday's French Open 2019 final, keeps his fourth place behind Switzerland's Roger Federer, who went down to the Spaniard in the last-four on his first appearance at the French Open since 2015. Russian Karen Khachanov jumped two spots into a personal best of ninth thanks to his achievement in reaching the French Open quarter-finals.

Italy's Fabio Fognini, also a quarter-finalist at Roland Garros and winner in Monte-Carlo in April, also moved up two places to 10th.

The biggest mover in the top 20 was Switzerland's Stan Wawrinka, whose quarter-final defeat by Federer in Paris was enough to see him go up nine places into 19th.
