Paris - Rafael Nadal stays at world number five in the latest ATP rankings released on Monday, but cuts the gap to the top four after claiming his ninth Monte Carlo Masters title.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga jumps up two places to seventh thanks to his run to the semis in Monaco, while his fellow Frenchman Gael Monfils is also up a couple of spots after reaching the final.

Novak Djokovic remains well clear of Andy Murray at the top despite his surprise early exit in the first major clay-court event of the year.
