Kim Clijsters of Belgium returned to the top 10 of women's tennis for the first time since her comeback last year while American Serena Williams remained first in the latest list published by the Women Tennis Association (WTA) on Monday.
Williams has 7,946 points to lead from Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki (6,375) and Dinara Safina of Russia (6,150).
The former number one Clijsters shot from 16th to 10th place with 3,860 points by virtue of her Miami title on Saturday. It is Clijsters' highest ranking since she came out of retirement last summer. During her sabbatical she began a family and has a daughter.
