Hsieh Su-Wei made the biggest jump on the rankings within the Top 200 in skyrocketing 45 spots to match her career-high of No.78 after winning her first career title in Kuala Lumpur.

It has been quite a ranking rollercoaster ride for Hsieh, who first reached No.78 in November 2008. Here is a list of some of her other ups and downs:

Date Ranking Move Note
10/1/01 No.306 to No.189 Cracks Top 200 after SF showing in first WTA event in Bali
1/28/08 No.158 to No.95 Cracks Top 100 after career-best Slam - R16 showing at Australian Open
9/14/09 No.174 to No.362 Falls out of Top 300 after loss in US Open qualifying
8/8/11 No.343 to No.194 Re-enters Top 200 after winning ITF Women's Circuit event
2/13/12 No.159 to No.122 Soars 37 spots after second career SF showing in Pattaya City
3/5/12 No.123 to No.78 Ties career-high after winning Kuala Lumpur

Another big piece of ranking news was Julia Goerges going up a spot to No.15, putting three Germans in the Top 15 for the first time since the week of February 27, 1995. Here is a comparison of those two weeks:


Player Ranking
Steffi Graf No.2
Anke Huber No.10
Sabine Hack No.15

Player Ranking
Andrea Petkovic No.10
Sabine Lisicki No.13
Julia Goerges No.15

Meanwhile, Italy's Sara Errani rose five spots to match her career-high of No.31 after taking the title in Acapulco. Speaking of Acapulco, after having to withdraw from this year's event, defending champion Gisela Dulko slid to No.126 and for the first time since June 2005 is no longer the top-ranked Argentine. That title now goes to No.120 Paula Ormaechea.
