It reflects her brilliant run in the Spanish sun, beating fourth seed Anett Kontaveit, Carina Witthoeft, Lucie Safarova, Sofia Kenin and then Anastasija Sevastova in the final.

Here are some of the week's other most notable rankings movers.

Ajla Tomljanovic (+7, No.72 to No.65): The unseeded Australian made it to the quarterfinals in Mallorca, having fought her way through qualifying to get there. She eventually fell to the runner-up Sevastova, 3-6, 6-3, 6-1.

Sofia Kenin (+15, No.91 to No.76): The 19-year-old shocked the tournament when she knocked top seed Caroline Garcia out in the Mallorca quarterfinals, 6-3, 6-3. The American then proceeded to give eventual champion Tatjana Maria a tough test in the semifinal, taking her to three sets but ultimately falling 2-6, 6-2, 4-6.

Samantha Stosur (+12, No.98 to No.86): The veteran Australian did not drop a set in Mallorca until she faced Sevastova in the semifinal. After a tighly-contested first set, which went to a tie break, the 34-year-old lost 7-6(1), 6-1.

Dalila Jakupovic (+21, No.113 to No.92): The Slovakian came through three rounds of qualifying in Birmingham to reach the quarterfinals, knocking out seventh seed Elise Mertens 3-6, 7-6(7), 6-1 along the way.
