Cape Town - Serbian star Novak Djokovic has dropped out of the top four in the ATP Tour rankings for the first time in a decade.

The new rankings published on Monday sees the former world number one fall to fifth spot while Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland climbs to fourth place.  

The 30-year-old Serb, who had been ranked inside the top four since July 2007, has been forced to miss the rest of the year in order to recover from a right elbow injury that has been troubling him for the last 18 months or so.

Britain's Andy Murray remains world number one, but his ranking will be under threat from Spain's Rafael Nadal when the two compete in Toronto next week.
