Venus Climbs Back Up World Tennis Rankings

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) _ Fresh off her fourth Wimbledon singles
title, Venus Williams has moved into the Top 20 in the rankings for
the first time in a year.
Williams is up to 17 after entering the tournament at number-31.
With Saturday's victory she became the lowest-ranked women's
champion at the All-England Club.
Runner-up Marion Bartoli (BAR'-toh-lee) of France moved from
19th to a career-high eleventh. Amelie Mauresmo (AM'-ih-lee
muh-REHZ'-moh), who lost in the fourth round at Wimbledon, dropped
from fourth to sixth.
Justine Henin (EHN'-uh) keeps the top ranking despite losing to
Bartoli in the semifinals.
There's little movement in the men's rankings after top-ranked
Roger Federer beat number-two Rafael Nadal (nah-DAHL') in the men's
final.
Semifinalist Novak Djokovic (JOH'-kuh-vihch) moved up one spot
to a career-best number-three, swapping places with Andy Roddick.
