Belinda Bencic won the first edition of the Mubadala Abu Dhabi Open last week, a WTA 500-level event. Bencic joined Aryna Sabalenka as the only players to win multiple titles so far this season. While the title run did not alter her ranking, Bencic solidified her position at No.9 as the Top 10 remained unchanged.

Here is a look at some of the movement within this week’s WTA Rankings:
