Paris – Rafael Nadal has held onto the ATP's No. 1 ranking thanks to his ninth French Open title.

Maria Sharapova's second trophy at Roland Garros moved her up three spots to No. 5 on the WTA list Monday.

If Nadal had lost Sunday's final to No. 2 Novak Djokovic, they would have swapped places in the rankings.

No. 3 Stan Wawrinka and No. 4 Roger Federer also stayed put, but Andy Murray climbed from No. 8 to No. 5 by reaching the French Open semifinals. First-time major semifinalist Ernests Gulbis jumped seven places to a career-best No. 10.

In the women's rankings, No. 1 Serena Williams and No. 2 Li Na didn't move despite early losses in Paris, while runner-up Simona

Halep rose one spot to No. 3. – Sapa-AP
