LONDON, Feb. 18 (UPI) -- Rafael Nadal collected his 51st ATP title and 37th on a clay court by winning the Brazil Open but it didn't lead to any change in the ATP Top 10.

Nadal is considered one of the best clay-court players in tennis history. Only Guillermo Vilas (45) and Thomas Muster (40) have won more ATP tournaments on the surface.

With no changes in the Top 10, Novak Djokovic is No. 1 for a 16th consecutive week and 69 weeks overall. He has 12,960 points.

Roger Federer remains second but lost 410 points, to 9,855, after a quarterfinals loss to Julien Benneteau in the Netherlands. Federer won the tournament in 2012. His lead over No. 3-ranked Andy Murray (8,480) is still 1,375 points, however. Fourth-ranked David Ferrrer has 6,865 points and Nadal, who gained 200 points last week, is fifth with 5,755.

Tomas Berdych has 4,485 points and is No. 6 in the rankings, with seventh-ranked Juan Martin del Potro, who won the tournament in the Netherlands, pulling up to 4,410 points. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (3,515) is eighth followed by No. 9 Janko Tipsarevic (3,125) and Richard Gasquet (2,880).

Milos Raonic, despite repeating as the SAP Open champion in California, drops from 13th to 14th in the rankings.

Ferrer is the top seed for the Copa Claro in Buenos Aires and the Open 13 event in Marseille, France, features the No. 6-10 ranked players with Berdych seeded No. 1.
