Hingis lost out to America's Serena Williams in the semi-finals of last week's WTA tournament in Arizona, but was still able to climb one place in the rankings at the expense of another American, Lindsay Davenport.

Davenport, who is currently injured, has fallen two places to fifth.

Having gone on to beat Jennifer Capriati in the Arizona final, Serena Williams is up three places to sixth, while her older sister Venus Williams continues to hold top spot.

The latest men's rankings brought no change for Switzerland's Roger Federer, who remains in 14th place despite last week's second round defeat in Dubai at the hands of Germany's Rainer Schüttler.
