Nadal mantains No 1 ranking

28 October 2013, 13:40

Berlin - Rafael Nadal maintained first place in the men's tennis rankings issued at Monday's start of the final week of the regular season.

Nadal tops the ATP list with 11 670 points from Serbia's Novak Djokovic (11 120) and feloow-Spaniard David Ferrer (6 600).

Nadal, Djokovic, Ferrer, Andy Murray, Juan Martin del Potro and Tomas Berdych are qualified for the next week's season-ending World Tour Finals in London.

With Murray sidelined with injury, three more places are up for grabs, currently occupied by Roger Federer, Stansilas Wawrinka and Richard Gasquet. But Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Milos Ranic are also still in the frame, and others including Tommy Haas also have a mathematical chance.

Federer only needs to win one more match to qualify for the 12th time, and all remaining berths will be decided at the Paris Masters which started Monday.

ATP top 10 as of October 28 (previous ranking in parenthesis):

1. (1) Rafael Nadal, Spain, 11 670 points

2. (2) Novak Djokovic, Serbia, 11 120

3. (3) David Ferrer, Spain, 6 600

4. (4) Andy Murray, Britain, 6 280

5. (5) Juan Martin del Potro, Argentina, 5 365

6. (6) Roger Federer, Switzerland, 4 245

7. (7) Tomas Berdych, Czech Republic, 4 180

8. (8) Stanislas Wawrinka, Switzerland, 3 240

9. (9) Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, France, 3 235

10. (10) Richard Gasquet, France, 3 130
