Paris - Rafael Nadal moved up to fifth in the latest ATP Tour rankings released on Monday a day after claiming a record 10th Monte Carlo title.

Spain's 30-year-old king of clay won his 50th trophy on his favourite surface, his 70th overall and his first title in almost a year as he beat compatriot Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6-1, 6-3 in just 76 minutes.

Ramos-Vinolas, 29, who had upset number one Andy Murray and Marin Cilic in the best run of his career, moved up five places to a career-high 19th.
