KEYS SOARS UP SINGAPORE STANDINGS - Leaderboard Update

After scoring her first WTA title in Eastbourne, Madison Keys made a tremendous jump up the Road To Singapore leaderboard. How high did she go?
WTA Rising Star Madison Keys skyrocketed up the Road To Singapore leaderboard after capturing her first WTA title at the Aegon International.

The 19-year-old Keys recorded two Top 10 wins in Eastbourne, over Jelena Jankovic in the first round and over Angelique Kerber in the final, en route to becoming the first teenager to win a Premier-level title since Caroline Wozniacki at New Haven in 2009.

The 470 points Keys earned for the victory lifted her from No.42 all the way to No.21 on the leaderboard, her highest ranking since February.

Other climbers included Kerber, Klara Koukalova, Ekaterina Makarova and Wozniacki. Kerber went from No.12 to No.11, Koukalova from No.19 to No.18, Makarova from No.22 to No.19 and Wozniacki from No.28 to No.23.

The Top 8 will qualify for October's BNP Paribas WTA Finals presented by SC Global, and those players remained unchanged from the previous week, with Maria Sharapova No.1, Li Na No.2, Simona Halep No.3, Serena Williams No.4, Agnieszka Radwanska No.5, Ana Ivanovic No.6, Dominika Cibulkova No.7 and Eugenie Bouchard No.8.

Making a move on the doubles leaderboard were Eastbourne champions Chan Yung-Jan and Chan Hao-Ching and 's-Hertogenbosch winners Marina Erakovic and Arantxa Parra Santonja. The Chan sisters went from No.21 to No.14 and Erakovic and Parra Santonja from No.17 to No.15. The Top 8 teams will qualify for Singapore.
