New Tianjin Open champion Caroline Garcia moves up four places in the WTA Rankings following her brilliant campaign last week.

The Frenchwoman is now World No.12 - and Linz champion Camila Giorgi and Hong Kong titlist Dayana Yastremska have also soared following their trophy wins.

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

Camila Giorgi (+4, No.32 to No.28): The Italian has secured her new career highest ranking after winning the Upper Austria Ladies Linz. Seeded fifth, the Wimbledon quarterfinalist dropped only one set en route to lifting the trophy - her second title on the WTA Tour.
 

Alison van Uytvanck (+7, No.56 to No.49): The Belgian moves back into the Top 50 following a run to the semifinals in Linz, including a quarterfinal win over third seed Barbora Strycova.

Dayana Yastremska (+36, No.102 to No.66): The 18-year-old soars into the Top 100 for the first time after winning her first WTA title in Hong Kong- all without dropping a set.

Andrea Petkovic (+15, No.82 to No.67): The German secures her highest ranking of the year so far after a good week in Linz during which she beat top seed and compatriot Julia Goerges en route to the semifinal.

Ekaterina Alexandrova (+32, No.119 to No.87): The Russian moves back into the Top 100 for the first time since April on the back of her campaign in Linz, during which she reached the final and beat sixth seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova along the way.

Katie Boulter (+5, No.101 to No.96): It's a career high for the Brit, who breaks the Top 100 for the first time after reaching the quarterfinal in Tianjin, beating eighth seed Maria Sakkari in the first round followed by Barbora Krejcikova in the Round of 16.
