The Asian swing of the season is well underway, and with new tournaments comes new winners and ranking points. Many ATP and WTA reached new career-high rankings after taking home the titles or at least came close.

+21 – No. 96 to No. 75

The biggest WTA mover of the week, the Romanian went all the way to the final of Tashkent as the No. 8 seed before losing to Alison Van Uytvanck in three sets. It was the third WTA final of her career, and was almost a repeat of her 2008 victory at the same tournament where she won her sole WTA title.

+5 — No. 22 to No. 17

It's always tough to lose any match, but a new career-high ranking can be a nice secondary prize. That's exactly what happened to the Croatian after reaching the quarterfinals of Wuhan. Despite being beaten by Ashleigh Barty, Martic rose five places to crack the Top 20.
