PARIS: Rafael Nadal's magnificent run to a
10th French Open title has earned the Spaniard a move into
second in the latest ATP world rankings published today.
     
The 31-year-old clinched his record-breaking Roland
Garros crown by demolishing Stan Wawrinka in a one-sided final
for a 15th Grand Slam crown on Sunday.
