Sania Mirza had a dream run this year.

With two Grand Slam titles and 10 ATP crowns the Hyderabadi star continues to occupy the No. 1 ranking in women's doubles, which she shares with her Swiss partner, Martina Hingis.

Both have 11,355 points each.

India's No 1 singles player Yuki Bhambri lost two places and is ranked 93rd while Somdev Devavarman also dropped a couple of rungs to No. 181 in the latest ATP list.

Saketh Myneni, India's No 2, was unchanged at No. 171 in the rankings.

Ramkumar Ramanathan, who won the Gwalior ITF Futures event, jumped 13 places to 260.

There was no change in rankings of India's doubles specialists, with Rohan Bopanna maintaining his world No 9 rank.

He is followed by Leander Paes (41) and Purav Raja (93).

Myneni is at 126, loss of two places, while left-hander Divij Sharan lost three places and dropped to 134.

In women's singles, Ankita Raina is the highest-ranked Indian player at No 255. The next best is Prerna Bhambri, at No 473.
