Nadal on the slide in ATP rankings

PARIS: Former world number one Rafael Nadal has slipped two places to fourth in the latest ATP world rankings published on Monday.

The Spaniard, who pulled out of his quarter-final with Andy Murray at the Australian Open due to injury, has not been ranked outside the top three since before his first French Open victory in 2005.

Britain’s Murray lost to Roger Federer in the Melbourne decider but his run to the final sees him climb a place to third.
