A new top 10 star was born on this week’s WTA Rankings, with Caroline Wozniacki becoming the first Dane to crack into the world’s elite. Also on the move is China’s Zheng Jie.
Wozniacki, who become the first from her country to win a singles title, as well as cracking into the top 20, earned her position by beating Alisa Kleybanova in the third round of Madrid.
Another national record was set by Zheng, who rose from No.16 to No.15 after reaching the second round in Madrid, becoming the first Chinese player to rank in the top 15. Fellow player, Li Na went as high as No.16; she is now ranked No.26 and could join Zheng soon.
