Paris - Germany's Angelique Kerber and Simona Halep of Romania both moved up two places in the WTA world top 10 rankings, with Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic slipping down three spots.

Sister Venus, who won the title in Dubai, her first tournament triumph in 16 months, gained 15 places to stand at 29th.

South Africa's No 1 player, Chanelle Scheepers, moved up one spot to No 77.
