Paris — Simona Halep retained the No1 spot in the latest women’s rankings despite losing in the third round at Wimbledon, but below her the upsets at the grass-court Major caused turmoil.

Winner Angelique Kerber jumped six places to fourth. The two women who contested the 2017 final both fell sharply after failing to match that.

Venus Williams dropped five places to 14 and Garbine Muguruza fell four places to No7. The biggest gainer was Serena Williams, who made the Wimbledon final.
