Surprise quarterfinalistYen-Hsun Lu jumped an incredible 40 spots to 42nd.

In the WTA rankings, Venus William's shocking quarterfinal loss resulted in a drop to the 4th spot, behind Serena, Jelena Jankovic and Caroline Wozniacki. Vera Zvonareva's run to the finals got the Russian back in the top 10 for the first time in almost a year, to 9th, while Czech Petra Kvitova's semifinal appearance bumped her from 62nd to 29th.
