New Delhi, Oct 15: Sania Mirza's first round exit in the Kremlin Open has affected her rankings as she dropped one rung to 30th in the latest WTA chart issued today.
The 20-year-old's Kremlin Open campaign was far from satisfactory, as she went down to Gisela Dulko of Argentina in the first round of the 1,340,000 dollar event.
The Hyderabadi girl, though, managed to improve her doubles ranking as she moved one place up to be placed at 19th position.
Interestingly, Sania had enjoyed a bit of success in the doubles format in the just concluded Kremlin Open where she, along with her Swiss partner Patty Schnyder, reached the quater-final round, losing to top seeds Cara Black and Liezel Huber in a thrilling match.
In the men's singles ranking, Rohan Bopanna's free fall continued as he dropped nine points to be placed at 260th, while Prakash Amritraj dropped two slots to 270th.
Meanwhile, in the doubles ATP rankings, there were no major movements as both Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi held on to their last week's 17th and 21st positions respectively in the individual rankings. Interestingly, Bopanna moved seven places up to 79th position.
