Paris: Newly-crowned Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova has moved up to fourth in the WTA rankings after lifting her second Grand Slam title at the All England Club at the weekend.

Czech Kvitova reached a career-high world number two ranking in October 2011, the year she won her first Wimbledon title.

The standings remain unchanged with American Serena Williams staying top ahead of China`s Li Na and Simona Halep of Romania.

Wimbledon finalist Eugenie Bouchard had some consolation after her straight sets defeat as the 20-year-old Canadian jumped six spots to a career-high seventh.

French number one Alize Cornet, the third round slayer of Serena Williams in Wimbledon, moved up three places to 21st.
