Surprise WTA Finals winner Dominka Cibulkova has climbed three places into fifth in the latest world rankings published on Monday.

Runner-up in the 2014 Australian Open Cibulkova was the only major mover inside the top 10 dominated by Kerber with Serena williams in second place.

Cibulkova put on a stunning show of unflappable tennis to upset top-ranked Angelique Kerber 6-3, 6-4 to win the WTA Finals title on Sunday.

The seventh-seeded Cibulkova, making her debut at the WTA Finals this week, picked the right match to win against Kerber during the week. The two met in the first match of the round-robin stage on Sunday with Kerber prevailing 7-6 (5), 2-6, 6-3.
