Rafael Nadal's surprise quarter-final exit at the Madrid Masters has seen the Spaniard replaced as world number one by in the latest ATP rankings published today.

Federer returns to the top spot despite not having played since March. Former world No. 1 slipped six places to 18th after his second round defeat in Madrid, his lowest ranking since October 2006.

Madrid winner remains in third, but the man he beat in Sunday's final, Dominic Thiem, dropped a place to eighth despite knocking out Nadal on his way to facing Zverev.

Thiem saw off in the semi-finals and it is the South African who inherits his seventh spot, the 31-year-old's highest ever ranking.

The highest mover in the men's charts is Madrid semi-finalist with the Russian teenager jumping 14 rungs to a best ever 29th.
