Seldom has one tournament had so much effect on the rankings. 

The results of the Australian Open will see seven placeholders change in the Top 10, including all of the Top Six. 

Caroline Wozniacki stays in the No. 1 spot, while Kim Clijsters moves into second place. 

Vera Zvonareva falls to third, while Francesca Schiavone jumped from seventh to fourth, a career best. Samantha Stosur (fifth) and Venus Williams (sixth) swap spots, while Australian Open finalist Li Na jumps from 11th to seventh, the highest rank ever by an Asian woman. 

Na will surpass No. 8 Jelena Jankovic, No. 9 Victoria Azarenka and No. 10 Elena Dementieva, who retired at the end of 2010. 

With her quarterfinal appearance last week, Agnieszka Radwanska will jump from 14th to 11th, while injured Serena Williams tumbles from fourth to 13th. Maria Sharapova jumps up two spots to 14th, and Flavia Pennetta will shoot up from 25th to 17th.
