Nadal stays at No. 2 as Djokovic rules world rankings

PARIS, France, August 13 ------ Rafael Nadal's Rogers Cup marked a significant step for the Spaniard as he prepares for the US Open, but it was not enough to topple Novak Djokovic at the top of the ATP rankings released Monday, August 12.

Nadal – who will be vying for a fourth title at Flushing Meadows – was too strong for Daniil Medvedev in Sunday's final, seeing off the Russian, 6-3 6-0, to claim his 35th Masters title.

Roger Federer and Dominic Thiem stayed 3rd and 4th respectively. Stefanos Tsitsipas, who entered the top 5 for the first time last week, dropped two places and is leapfrogged by Kei Nishikori and Alexander Zverev. Medvedev's reward for his appearance in Sunday's final was a one-place climb to 8th.
