Paris - Serbia's Jelena Jankovic, the runner-up in the Indian Wells finals, climbed four places to 17th in the latest WTA rankings released on Monday.

Russia's Maria Sharapova is comfortably second, while Czech Petra Kvitova and Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki complete the top five.

Spaniard Garbine Muguruza was another player to break into the top 20, climbing three places to 19th.
