Paris - Marseille winner Jo-Wilfried Tsonga returned to the world's Top 10 when the ATP rankings were released on Monday.

The 31-year-old Frenchman won his third title of 2017 on the south coast of France on Sunday, beating compatriot Lucas Pouille 6-4, 6-4 in the final.

Tsonga moved up four places to seventh, his highest ranking since June last year.

Pouille also gained two places to move up to 15th while Austria's Dominic Thiem dropped one spot to ninth despite winning the title in Rio de Janeiro.

American Jack Sock moved up three places and into the top 20 after winning the Delray Beach tournament.

Andy Murray held onto the world No 1 ranking ahead of Novak Djokovic, with neither of the pair in action last week.

South Africa's Kevin Anderson, who lost in the first round of the Delray Beach event to Argentina's Juan Martin Del Potro, has slipped down one sport to 76th in the rankings.
