Rafael Nadal has dropped three places to number seven in the latest ATP rankings released on Monday a day after his defeat in the Madrid Open final to Andy Murray.
It is Rafa’s lowest ranking in ten years as Novak Djokovic, who did not compete in Spain, continues to dominate.
Rafa: “Nothing changes going from five to seven. I need a result in Rome to not drop below the top eight which could really affect Roland Garros. If you are not in the top eight you can get a top player in a really early round.”
