New Delhi:

Sania Mirza's commendable run at last week's Pacific Life Open that ended in the fourth round has helped the Indian ace gain a spot to be 31st in the latest WTA Rankings issued today.

Sania, who battled a wrist injury through her fourth-round loss to Slovak Daniela Hantuchova in the USD 2.1 million event, now has 917 ranking points.

The Hyderabadi star has also gained three places in her doubles rankings, moving up to 22nd with 1830 points after the semifinal appearance in the Pacific Life Open.

Sania and her American partner Bethanie Mattek had lost to the Chinese pair of Zi Yan and Jie Zheng in the last-four stage.

Meanwhile, in the ATP doubles rankings, Mahesh Bhupathi leapt four spots to 13th in the latest list.

The Indian veteran who reached the doubles quarterfinal of men's Master Series event with Bahamas' partner Mark Knowles, has 2740 points.

However, his estranged partner Leander Paes dropped a couple of rungs despite matching Bhupathi's show in the event with his Australian partner Paul Hanley.

Paes is placed 20th with 2070 points.
