Rafael Nadal's 14th French Open title, and 22nd Grand Slam trophy overall, lifted him one place to No. 4 behind top-ranked Novak Djokovic.

Caspar Rudd, who lost to Nadal in the final, has also moved up two places to sixth in the rankings. 

Nadal beat Djokovic in the quarterfinals along the way to the final, where he overwhelmed Casper Ruud 6-3, 6-3, 6-0 on Sunday and became, two days after his 36th birthday, the oldest man to win the singles championship at Roland Garros -- all despite needing pain-killing injections for a chronic problem in his left foot.

Serbia's Novak Djokovic, who lost to Nadal in the quarter-finals at Rola Ganro, holds the top spot ahead of Daniel Medvedev. Alexander Zverev of Germany holds third place.
