Canadian tennis star Milos Raonic's quarterfinal exit at the Rogers Cup cost him a spot in the latest ATP rankings released Monday.

The native of Thornhill, Ont. dropped one position to No. 7, with Argentina's Juan Martin Del Potro the only other top 10 player to lose ground, falling to 11th.

Newly-crowned Rogers Cup champion Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France was a big mover on the list, rising to No. 10 from 15th.

There was no change in the top 5, where Novak Djokovic remained No. 1, followed by Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Stan Wawrinka and Thomas Berdyvh.

On the women's side, Eugenie Bouchard of Westmount, Que. remained at No. 8 in the WTA rankings.

The 20-year-old wasn't penalized for her surprise defeat last Tuesday at the hands of American Shelby Rogers in the second round of the Rogers Cup.

Bouchard also made a second-round exit in Canada last year, and the tour only penalizes players who can't repeat their standing in the same tournament in consecutive years.

Such was the case for Canadian Vasek Pospisil, of Vernon, B.C., who plummeted 19 spots in the ATP rankings Monday to end up at No. 46.

He had advanced all the way to the Rogers Cup semifinals last year in Montreal but only managed a second-round loss in Toronto last week to France's Richard Gasquet.

The only other Canadian in the top 100 on either tour this week is Aleksandra Wozniak of Blainville, Que., who rose one spot to No. 96.

Torontonian Sharon Fichman dropped 14 spots to 114th after missing the Rogers Cup due to injury.
