Belinda Bencic's comeback from injury continues in style as she returns to the Top 100.

This week she rises 22 places, from No.120 to No.98, after winning the WTA 125K Taipei with a 7-6(3), 6-1 victory over Arantxa Rus in the final.

That triumph follows her title win at the WTA EA Hua Hin Championship last week.
 

Here are some of the other most notable movers this week:

Mihaela Buzarnescu (+8, No.68 to No.60): The Romanian's fine run of form continues, most recently going into the Dunlop Srixon World Challenge in Japan as top seed and coasting her way to the title without dropping a set.

Naomi Broady (+5, No.122 to No.117): The British player battled through to the semifinals in Taipei, falling to Arantxa Rus in three sets, 3-6, 6-4, 3-6.

Tamara Zidansek (+17, No.149 to No.132): The 19-year-old did not drop a set in Japan until she got to the final and found Buzarnescu one obstacle too many. Seeded third, she also dispatched eighth seed Junri Namigata and sixth seed Miharu Imanishi along the way.

Arantxa Rus (+33, No.167 to No.134): The Dutchwoman finished as runner-up to Bencic in Taipei, beating Broady, Lisette Cabrera, Vitalia Diatchenko and Ipek Soylu during the campaign.

Sabina Sharipova (+10, No.196 to No.186): After a loss in the Hua Hin Championships earlier in the month, the 23-year-old made it through one round of qualifying in Taipei before losing to Dalila Jakupovic, 6-3, 6-1.

Kathinka von Deichmann (+10, No.199 to No.189): The 23-year-old was seeded second at the Hart Open in Poland, but lost in the semifinal to fourth seed Deborah Chiesa, 6-3, 6-4.
