Maria Sharapova takes the lead in the WTA ranking after the unexpected retirement of Justine Henin. Almost every player in the Top 20 benefits from this and gain positions.

Great climb also for Rome's quarter-finalist Tsvetana Pironkova, who goes from #64 to a career-high at #47. And also career high rankings for Romanian Monica Niculescu, who is the greatest gainer going from #111 to #84 and breaking Top 100 for the first time, and for British Anne Keothavong at #97, becoming the first Brit in the Top 100 since Samantha Smith in 1998.
