Rafael Nadal’s surprise quarterfinal exit at the Madrid Masters has seen the Spaniard replaced as World No. 1 by Roger Federer in the latest ATP rankings.
Federer returns to the top spot despite not having played since March. Former World No. 1 Novak Djokovic slipped six places to 18th after his second-round defeat in Madrid, his lowest ranking since October 2006. Madrid winner Alexander Zverev remains third, but Dominic Thiem, dropped a place to eighth despite knocking out Nadal on his way to facing Zverev.
