Venus Williams storms up 10 places
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.
