Rafael Nadal has held on to his No. 1 ranking after cruising to a record 11th French Open title on Sunday at Roland Garros. He sits barely ahead of No. 2 Roger Federer with a 100-point lead of 8,770 to 8,670.
Alexander Zverev is No. 3, nearly 3,000 rankings points further back. Juan Martin del Potro jumped two spots to No. 4 by reaching his first French Open semifinal in nine years, and Thiem rose one place to No. 7 by reaching his first Grand Slam final.
If Federer reaches the final in Stuttgart, he will regain the No. 1 spot in the ATP Rankings on 18 June.

“Today is all about Roland Garros,” Rafa said after defeating Dominic Thiem 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 in Sunday’s final. “I don’t think about the rankings at all today, no?”
Rafael Nadal is now leading the ATP Race to London. He has 1545 points more than Alexander Zverev.
