The new ATP Emirates rankings are out, and Rafael Nadal has 14,085 points, leading Novak Djokovic by 3,505 points. The only change in Rafa’s totals has been the dropping of points from Sao Paulo.
The movers in the top 10 this week are Buenos Aires tournament winner David Ferrer, who displaced Juan Martin del Potro to move one up to No.4, and Rotterdam winner Tomas Berdych, who pushed Andy Murray down one spot to get to No. 6.
Rafa has to defend 500 points before Indian Wells (which he gained from a win at Acapulco). Although he will not be returning to Acapulco, he will debut at the Rio Open ATP 500 tournament on Tuesday against Daniel Gimeno-Traver to make up for the points that will drop off this month.
