Polish player Iga Swiatek retains the number one spot and is followed by Belarusian player Arina Sabalenka, Jessica Pegula (U.S.), Ons Jabeur (Tunisia) and Caroline Garcia (France).
The highest-ranked Estonian player in the men's (ATP) new rankings is Mark Lajal, who is 389th, with Kristjan Tamm (648th) and Daniil Glinka (779th) following.
Novak Djokovic remains top men's player, followed by Carlos Alcaraz (Spain), Stefanos Tsitsipas (Greece) Casper Ruud (Norway) and Taylor Fritz (U.S.).
Kaia Kanepi is next due to play competitively at the prestigious Indian Wells tournament, starting tomorrow, Wednesday.
