This week's WTA tennis rankings are out, and there's been a big change near the top.

Li Na has lost her world number-2 ranking.

Romania's Simona Halep has overtaken the injured Li Na in the rankings, putting the Wuhan-native down to 3rd in the world.

Li Na pulled out of the US Open and the two tournaments leading up to the event, saying she's struggling with a knee injury.

There was only one other shift in the WTA's top-10 this week, which has seen Belarusian Victoria Azarenka take over the world number-10 spot from Serbian Ana Ivanovic.

On the men's side in the ATP rankings, on the back of his victory over Roger Federer on Sunday in the Rogers Cup finals in Canada, France's Jo-Wilfred Tsonga has moved into the top-10, up 3-spots to sit 10th in the world.

Britain¡¯s Andy Murray, off the back of a few poor showings in recent weeks, has now slipped down to 9th in the world, with hard-hitting Bulgarian Grigor Dmitrov surpassing him to sit 8th.

The rest of the men's top-10 remain the same, with Djokovic and Nadal well in-front in the one-two positions, with the Swiss duo of Federer and Stan Warwrinka sitting 3 and 4.

Thomas Berdych rounds out the top-5.
