Rafael Nadal is world No 1

Rafael Nadal has proved himself that he is the king of the tennis. He has won the french open final and bagged the grand slam title on sunday.

Robin Soderling got defeated by Nadal and Nadal achieved this title in a straight sets of 6-4, 6-2, 6-4. Nadal not only topped the ATP list, also he was the second man to take five titles at Roland Garros after the great Bjorn Borg.

It was the fifth French Open title for Nadal at Roland Garros, achieved in only six years.

Soderling moved up one place in the rankings to a career-high sixth while Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro, who missed the French Open while he recovers from wrist surgery, dropped to eighth.
