Melbourne - Novak Djokovic's win over Andy Murray in the Australian Open final on Sunday has consolidated his No 1 ranking on the ATP Tour.
After winning last year's Australian Open, Djokovic had the most ranking points - 2 000 - to lose. But the four-set win guaranteed he'd maintain the same points gap over Australian Open semi-finalist Roger Federer at No 2, and third-ranked Murray.
The only change in the top five is that Australian Open semi-finalist David Ferrer will move from fifth to fourth, shifting the injured Rafael Nadal, who did not play in Melbourne, to fifth place.

Unseeded Jeremy Chardy of France, who advanced to the quarter-finals at Melbourne Park this year after losing in the first round in 2012, is expected to move into the top 25 from 36th.
