Paris - Andy Murray has reclaimed second place in the world rankings from Roger Federer after beating world No 1 Novak Djokovic in the final of the Rome Masters on Sunday.

The Scot underlined his credentials for the upcoming French Open at Roland Garros by beating Djokovic 6-3, 6-3 on his 29th birthday.

Elsewhere, Milos Raonic of Canada is up a place to ninth and Richard Gasquet climbs two places to 10th.

Their rise comes at the expense of Spain's David Ferrer, who drops three places to 12th after his third-round defeat in Rome to Lucas Pouille of France.
