Romania’s Simona Halep keeps going down in WTA rankings

Romania’s tennis star Simona Halep keeps going down in the WTA ranking of the best women’s tennis players in the world. She reached 7th place after her recent failure in Stuttgart.

Although she ended 2015 in the second place, Halep fell to the third after this year’s Australian Open, went down to fourth later in February, and then lost another place, ranking fifth at the end of February. According to the newest ranking, the Romanian is now seventh, with a total of 3,660 points. She is just 320 points away from number 10.

Last week, Simona Halep was eliminated from the Porsche Grand Prix tournament in Stuttgart after German qualifier Laura Siegemund beat her 6-1, 6-2.

American Serena Williams keeps leading the WTA ranking, with 8,625 points, followed by Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska – 5,775 points, and Germany's Angelique Kerber – 5,740 points.

Besides Halep, Romania has three other players in top 100: Monica Niculescu at number 31, Irina Begu at number 35, and Alexandra Dulgheru at 98.
