PARIS, France, May 16 – Andy Murray has reclaimed second place in the world rankings from Roger Federer after beating world number one Novak Djokovic in the final of the Rome Masters on Sunday.

The Scot underlined his credentials for the upcoming French Open at Roland Garros by beating Djokovic 6-3, 6-3 on his 29th birthday.

Elsewhere, Milos Raonic of Canada is up a place to ninth and Richard Gasquet climbs two places to 10th.

Their rise comes at the expense of Spain’s David Ferrer, who drops three places to 12th after his third-round defeat in Rome to Lucas Pouille of France.
