Angelique Kerber has lost a place in the tennis world rankings and is now in tenth place. Germany’s best female tennis player was overtaken in the ranking published on Monday by the Czech Petra Kvitova.
The 30-year-old Kieler Kerber last reached the semi-finals in Dubai. Also Julia Görges, who had canceled for the tournament in the United Arab Emirates due to injury, lost a place: The 29-year-old from Bad Oldesloe is now twelfth. New first is the Romanian Simona Halep. She took the lead from the Danish Caroline Wozniacki.

The German top player Alexander Zverev held the fifth position in the men’s competition. The Munich Peter Gojowczyk, however, made a big leap: he rose by 13 places to 51th. The 28-year-old from Munich reached the final at the tournament in Delray Beach last week, but lost there on Sunday evening against the American Frances Tiafoe.
At the top of the list is Roger Federer, who leads the world rankings ahead of Spaniard Rafael Nadal.
