Mertens climbs to career-high ranking



Belgian Elise Mertens climbed three places to a career-high 17th in the WTA world rankings released on Monday following her victory at the Lugano Open on Sunday.

Romania's Simona Halep retained her No 1 position as there was no change in the top 16 after a low-key week in women's tennis.

Mertens's beaten opponent in the Swiss final, Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus climbed 14 places to 47th.

The biggest mover, though, was Anna Karolina Schmiedlova of Slovakia who jumped 48 spots to 84th after winning the Bogota Open.
