Madrid, July 23: Romania’s Simona Halep maintained her No.1 spot in the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) singles rankings released on Monday, ahead of Denmark’s Caroline Wozniacki, as the top 10 remained unchanged.

Germany’s Angelique Kerber kept world No.4, after having claimed the spot a week earlier thanks to her first-ever Wimbledon title victory on July 14, when she defeated Serena Williams, who moved up one spot this week to world No.27.

Spain’s Garbiñe Muguruza held world No.7, behind Elina Svitolina of Ukraine at No. 5 and Caroline Garcia of France at No.6.

The next highest Spanish player in the list, Carla Suarez Navarro, dropped two spots to world No. 26, just 13 points ahead of Williams.

Further down the rankings, Alize Cornet of France jumped 14 places to world No. 34 after winning the Swiss Open on Sunday. IANS
