Venus Wil­liams storms up 10 places

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Venus Wil­liams was the main mover at the top of the new WTA ten­nis rank­ings pub­lished on Mon­day, climb­ing 10 places to 14th.

The vet­eran older sis­ter of world No 1 Ser­ena Wil­liams won the WTA tour­na­ment in Wuhan last week, as Spain’s Gar­bine Mugu­ruza re­tired dur­ing the fi­nal due to ex­haus­tion, although she was al­ready a set and three games down at that point.

There was some so­lace for the Spa­niard, though, as the Wim­ble­don fi­nal­ist climbed three places to a ca­reer high rank­ing of fifth.

Ser­bia’s Ana Ivanovic was the big loser as the for­mer French Open cham­pion fell six places to 15th.
