Here are some of the most notable rankings movers:

Timea Babos (+10, No.45 to No.35): The fourth seed picked up her third singles championship at the Taiwan Open, beating Kateryna Kozlova in straight sets in the final, 7-5, 6-1. Last month she beat CoCo Vandeweghe in the first round of the Australian Open.

Jennifer Brady (+8, No.95 to No.87): The second seed enjoyed a solid run at the Dow Tennis Classic to move deeper into the Top 100, making it as far as the semifinal after dropping just a single set up until that point.
