Big Move For Watson

WEEK:  03.07.2016

Heather Watson was the mover of the week with her fine performance in Monterrey.  En route to the title she knocked out the number two seed, Caroline Wozniacki, and came back from a set down in the final to defeat Kirsten Flipkens.  This victory gave her the third career singles title as well as some much needed ranking points.  There was not much movement on the ATP Tour as last week was dedicated to the first round of Davis Cup.  This week will showcase the first Masters 1000 event in Indian Wells; expect to see some phenomenal matches and possibly some surprising upsets as many of the top ranked players are set to compete at this prestigious event.


PLAYERS (within the top 100) SPOTS MOVED NEW RANK
Mikhail Kukushkin (KAZ) DOWN  11 90
Paul-Henri Mathieu (FRA)* UP  7 62
Heather Watson (GBR) UP  31 53
Alexandra Dulgheru (ROU) DOWN  26 93
Naomi Broady (GBR) UP  20 76
Anett Kontaveit (EST) UP  18 73
Kirsten Flipkens (BEL) UP  14 59
Su-Wei Hsieh (TPE) DOWN  12 81
Elizaveta Kulichkova (RUS) DOWN  11 98
Eugenie Bouchard (CAN) UP  10 42

The top 10 members remained the same and maintained their exact positions from last week on both the ATP and WTA Tours.

Mathieu got an honorary mention even though his change in ranking was less than ten because there were not many significant ranking changes on the  ATP Tour due to Davis Cup.
