London - Serena Williams has widened her lead at No 1 in the WTA rankings
with her fourth consecutive Grand Slam title at Wimbledon, now holding more
than twice as many points as No 2 Maria Sharapova.
Novak Djokovic's third championship at the All England Club allowed him to
retain his healthy lead atop the ATP rankings on Monday over No 2 Roger
Federer, the man he beat in the final.
Sharapova, who lost to Williams in the semi-finals, rose two spots, while
last year's champion, Petra Kvitova, slid from No 2 to No 5 after exiting in
the third round.
Garbine Muguruza, the 21-year-old from Spain who was the runner-up to
Williams, moved into the top 10 for the first time at No 9, an 11-spot rise.
The men's top 10 remained unchanged, including Andy Murray at No 3, and
Rafael Nadal at No 10.
