Updated WTA rankings list saw no changes in the Top 5, with only minor twists in the Top 15. Angelique Kerber is still the world number 1, with 6965 points, 115 ahead of Simona Halep.
Kerber had to withdraw from Birmingham with a hamstring injury but Halep will also miss this week's action, saving the real battle for the number 1 spot for Wimbledon. Karolina Pliskova is third with 6690 points and she is also hoping for a great grass court swing, eyeing the top of the WTA standings for the first time in her career.
Serena Willimas still hang on in 4th, almost 2000 points behind Pliskova while Elina Svitolina holds 5th, 45 points short of Williams. Dominika Cibulkova stayed 6th, ahead of Johanna Konta who gained one position, moving 55 points clear of Caroline Wozniacki who dropped to 8th.
Svetlana Kuznetsova and Agnieszka Radwanska complete the Top 10 company, and 4 players behind them gained one place when Madison Keys fell to 18th, previously being 14th.
Timea Bacsinszky is the only new player in the Top 20 and we have young Croat Anja Konjuh who made a nice progress to enter Top 30. Anett Kontaveit gained 13 places to be the mover of the week, together with Donna Vekic and Ashleigh Barty.
