Kvitova rises to fifth in world rankingsNew York: Petra Kvitova of Czech Republic rose to fifth in the new WTA rankings published Sunday after winning the New Haven Open.

Kvitova defeated Russia`s Maria Kirilenko 7-6(9), 7-5 in a close-fought final Saturday to swap places with Angelique Kerber of Germany, who is now sixth in the table.

Belarus` Victoria Azarenka remains the World No. 1 ahead of Poland`s Agnieszka Radwanska and Russia`s Maria Sharapova.

Reaching the final allowed Kirilenko leapfrog Serbia`s Ana Ivanovic and Slovakia`s Dominika Cibulkova and take a career-best 12th position.

In the men`s ATP rankings, the only change in the top ten was Argentina`s Juan Martin del Potro taking eighth position from Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia.

Switzerland`s Roger Federer remains World No. 1 with Serbian player Novak Djokovic second and Spain`s Rafael Nadal third.

The last Grand Slam of the year, U.S. Open starts Monday on the hard courts at Flushing Meadows here.
