14-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal’s misery continued this year after he dropped a ladder to No. 8 in the latest release of the men’s singles rankings by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP).

This comes after his compatriot David Ferrer clinched the Kuala Lumpur title and amassed 250 ATP points to his kitty, thereby overtaking Nadal for the 7th spot after exchange of places.

Feliciano Lopez, who was the runner-up in Kuala Lumpur, also ascended two places to No. 14 as Belgium’s David Goffin (16) had to make way for him.  Australia’s Nick Kyrgios, the semi-finalist last week here, also soared 7 steps to be placed 34th in the world.
