Sania Mirza's singles rankings continue to nosedive and the out-of-form Indian ace on Monday slipped out of the top-50 for the first time in more than a year to be placed 60th in the latest WTA charts.

Sania, who had yet another disappointing week on the circuit, crashing out in the second round of the Nordea Nordic Light Open, has fallen 10 places in the new charts and has 538 ranking points.

The drop is the lowest since she finished the 2006 season at 66th. Marred by injuries, her current season has been disappointing and she struggled to find form.

Adding to her woes was a wrist injury that required surgery in the United States.

However, her doubles standing remained static at 26th for this week.

Meanwhile, in the ATP charts, Mahesh Bhupathi gained a spot to be ninth this week, while Leander Paes remained steady at 15th.

The estranged former partners will be teaming up for the Olympic Games starting August 8.
