Switzerland’s Stanislas Wawrinka not only attracted whopping prize money by winning the men’s singles title at the recently-concluded French Open 2015, but also ensured his surge in the latest rankings released by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) on Monday.

By the virtue of his stunning conquest of top-seeded Novak Djokovic of Serbia in the Sunday’s title-clash, Wawrinka was also bestowed upon with 2000 ranking points that helped him jump five positions to be placed No. 4 with 5835 points in the ATP rankings.

Djokovic, Federer, Murray Unmoved

Meanwhile, Djokovic retained his top spot with monstrous 13,845 points. He is followed by Swiss maestro Roger Federer (9415) and Great Britain’s Andy Murray (7040) – both of whom managed to enter the second week of the Paris tournament, before being shown the door.

Deep Plunge for Nadal

9-time French Open winner, Rafael Nadal, had to pay the price for his quarterfinal exit (lost to Djokovic), as the Spaniard dropped down to No. 10 – his lowest ranking in the recent times. His compatriot David Ferrer, however, ascended a place to No. 7 in the list.

The other players in the top 10 of the men’s singles ranking include – Kei Nishikori (No. 5), Tomas Berdych (6), Milos Raonic (8), and Marin Cilic (No. 9).
