Agnieszka Radwanska moved ahead of Petra Kvitova into fifth place in the latest women's tennis rankings issued on Monday by the WTA after beating her for the trophy at the season-ending championships the previous day.

Radwanska claimed her biggest career title Sunday in Singapore in the absence of top ranked Serena Williams, who has 9,945 points and leads from Simona Halep (6,060) and Garbine Muguruza (5,200).

The season is all but completed but Kvitova and eighth-ranked fellow-Czech Lucie Safarova can add to their tally in the November 14-15 Fed Cup final against Russia for whom fourth-ranked Maria Sharapova could be playing.

1. (1) Serena Williams, United States, 9,945 points
2. (2) Simona Halep, Romania, 6,060
3. (3) Garbine Muguruza, Spain, 5,200
4. (4) Maria Sharapova, Russia, 5,011
5. (6) Agnieszka Radwanska, Poland, 4,500
6. (5) Petra Kvitova, Czech Republic, 4,220
7. (8) Flavia Pennetta, Italy, 3,621
8. (9) Lucie Safarova, Czech Republic, 3,590
9. (7) Angelique Kerber, Germany, 3,590
10. (10) Timea Bacsinszky, Switzerland, 3,133
