Paris - German Alexander Zverev rose one spot to a career high seventh in the ATP Tour rankings released on Monday following his victory at last week's Rogers Cup in Montreal.

The 20-year-old stunned Swiss great Roger Federer 6-3, 6-4 in Sunday's final to win his second Masters 1000 title of the year, having beaten Novak Djokovic in the Rome title clash in May.

The biggest mover, though, was 18-year-old Canadian Denis Shapovalov, who climbed 76 places to 67th after reaching the semi-finals in Montreal, beating world number two Rafael Nadal along the way.

Briton Andy Murray retained the No 1 spot, but will lose it to either Spain's Nadal or Federer at the end of the week.

Murray is injured and will sit out the Cincinnati Masters, where he reached the final last year.
