LONDON — Serena Williams has widened her lead at No. 1 in the WTA rankings with her fourth consecutive Grand Slam title at Wimbledon, now holding more than twice as many points as No. 2 Maria Sharapova.
Novak Djokovic's third championship at the All England Club allowed him to retain his healthy lead atop the ATP rankings on Monday over No. 2 Roger Federer, the man he beat in the final.
Sharapova, who lost to Williams in the semifinals, rose two spots, while last year's champion, Petra Kvitova, slid from No. 2 to No. 5 after exiting in the third round.
Garbine Muguruza, the 21-year-old from Spain who was the runner-up to Williams, moved into the top 10 for the first time at No. 9, an 11-spot rise.
The men's top 10 remained unchanged, including Andy Murray at No. 3, and Rafael Nadal at No. 10.
