It's too soon to state that the ousted Wimbledon champion Serena Williams has reached the end. The latest WTA world rankings, however, saw her fall 150 places to 175th after her fourth-round defeat at Wimbledon against Marion Bartoli.

She only recently made her comeback from a year-long injury lay-off by competing at Wimbledon, and despite evidently being short of fitness, she impressively made it to the pre-quarters stage.

Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova climbs one spot to seventh while Caroline Wozniacki remains at the top of the rankings.

There are no surprises in the men's rankings though, as Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic had ensured his top spot with his semifinal win. He becomes the 25th man to occupy the world number one spot. He is followed by Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Murray.

Semifinalist Jo-Wilfred Tsonga rose five places to 14th while Australian teenager Bernard Tomic, climbed 87 places to a career-high ranking of 71.
