The results of last week's major tennis tournaments affected the position of athletes in the world rankings.

In July, the world's leading tennis players took a short break after Wimbledon to prepare for the tournament series in North America, which will be crowned with U.S. Open. Last week, second-echelon tennis ranking representatives, who want to return or get into the top 10 for the first time, came to the fore over. Within the Women's Tennis Association Tour (WTA) tournaments were held in Turkish Istanbul and Swedish Bastad and their winners were Dane Caroline Wozniacki and German Mona Barthel respectively.

While the former first racket of the world continued its series, winning at least one title per year for seven consecutive years, since the 2008 season. Curiously, that last Sunday was successful not only for Wozniacki, but also for her former golfer boyfriend Rory McIlroy, who won one of the most significant victories in his career. 25-year-old Briton won the oldest tournament on the planet in his sport: British Open, one of the four majors in golf.

The finale of the tournament in Sweden was unexpected after the competitions' first two rackets Frenchwoman Alize Cornet and Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova both lost in the first round. Bartel's rival was South African representative Chanelle Scheepers. This match for the title also turned to be double-set but struggle on the court was fierce. The German defeated her opponent with a score of 6:3, 7:6 (7:3) in 1 hour 39 minutes.

Successes of Dane and German also reflected in the WTA rankings. Wozniacki has moved up two places and now occupies the 13th position. Barthel raised up by 19 positions, but she is only in the fifth ten on 42nd place. Serena Williams, who has to hold a fortnight more to reach 200 weeks at the top position, remains ranking's leader. Maria Sharapova, who is on 6th position, is rating's best Russian representative. Yekaterina Makarova closes the top twenty.

Two tournaments of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) were also held last week in Hamburg and Bogota: the winners are Argentine Leonardo Mayer and Australian Bernard Tomic respectively. The most serious change in the ATP ranking is related to the success of Meyer, who has risen by 19 positions and now stays at 27th place.

Ferrer pushed Milos Raonic from sixth to seventh position, but five leaders has not changed. It still includes Serb Novak Djokovic, Spaniard Rafael Nadal, Swiss Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka as well as Czech Tomas Berdych. Russians in the top twenty of the world's ranking are represented only by 19th Mikhail Youzhny, who lost just to Alexander Zverev Junior in the second round in Hamburg.
