Paris - Ashleigh Barty hung on to top place in the WTA Tour rankings on Monday despite crashing out of Wimbledon in the last 16.

The French Open champion, who was hoping to become the first Australian to win at the All England Club since Evonne Goolagong Cawley in 1980, lost in three sets to the American Alison Riske.

The top three of Barty, Naomi Osaka and Karolina Pliskova remains unchanged although none of them reached the quarter-finals.

Simona Halep, who demolished Serena Williams in under an hour in Saturday's final, moves up three places to number four.

Williams also moves up one place to nine.

Former world No 1 Angelique Kerber, who lost to Lauren Davis in the second round at Wimbledon, drops out of the top 10 to 13.
