Following an fascinating fortnight in Paris for Roland Garros, the landscape of the Emirates ATP Rankings has changed significantly, particularly in the Top 25. Atop the list, Rafael Nadal maintained his stranglehold of the top spot in the rankings by retaining the French Open title. Djokovic, who would have surpassed Nadal had he won the title, is right at his heels.
British No. 1 Andy Murray made his long-awaited return to the Top 5 after a strong showing in Paris, where he reached the semi-final round. He will look to use that momentum to boost his performances in June, as he is set to defend two titles on grass – the Aegon Championship and the Wimbledon Championship.
Latvian No. 1 Ernests Gulbis made arguably the most dramatic rise into the Top 10, as he was boosted 7 spots due to his strong showing at the French Open. Gulbis defeated Roger Federer and Tomas Berdych in consecutive matches before succumbing to eventual runner-up Novak Djokovic in the semi-final round.
