Novak Djokovic is confident Rafael Nadal will bounce back

The Spaniard lost in straight sets to Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals of the French Open, a tournament he had won for nine of the previous 10 years.

In contrast, Stan Wawrinka moves up five places to world No 4 in the wake of his victory at Roland Garros.

Wawrinka defeated Djokovic to claim the crown on Sunday but despite that defeat, the Serb remains top of the rankings, with Roger Federer second and Andy Murray third.

In the WTA rankings, Maria Sharapova dropped two places to No 4 following her fourth-round defeat to Lucie Safarova in Paris.

Safarova’s Czech Republic compatriot Petra Kvitova replaces Sharapova in second spot, ahead of Simona Halep.
