Serena Williams climbs to No. 28 in rankings

Thanks to her runner-up finish at Wimbledon, Serena Williams has climbed 153 spots in the newly released WTA rankings.

The former No. 1 is ranked 28th in the list published Monday after losing to Angelique Kerber of Germany in the Wimbledon final on Saturday.

Williams, 36, was playing in just her fourth tournament and second Grand Slam event since giving birth in September.

Kerber rose six spots to No. 4 with her win, while Simona Halep held on to the No. 1 ranking despite losing in Wimbledon’s third round.

On the men’s side, Rafael Nadal stayed atop the ATP rankings Monday after losing in the semifinals to eventual champion Novak Djokovic, who jumped 11 spots to No. 10. Kevin Anderson, who fell to Djokovic in the final, moved into the top five for the first time in his career at No. 5.
