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 semi-finals.

First-time major semi-finalist 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.
