Seven-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal will not have his seeding bumped up at this year's Roland Garros, organisers confirmed on Saturday.

The Spaniard’s world ranking has slipped to five after he missed seven months of action through injury. As world number five, Nadal could now be a potential quarter-final opponent for one of the world’s top three of Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Andy Murray.
