"Meanwhile in the ATP rankings, highest ranked Indian Somdev Devvarman dropped 10 places to 135. "
New Delhi, July 7 - India's tennis star Sania Mirza Monday broke into the top-five of the doubles WTA rankings for the first time in her career.

Sania and Zimbabwean partner Cara Black couldn't do too well at the Wimbledon championships and were ousted in the second round appearance but still managed to rake in 130 ranking points, enough to take Sania above Slovenia's Katarina Srebotnik into fifth place.

Sania, who has 20 WTA doubles titles to her name, has had a difficult past, overcoming a career threatening wrist injury.

At her peak, Sania achieved her career-best singles rankings of 27 in August 2007.

Meanwhile in the ATP rankings, highest ranked Indian Somdev Devvarman dropped 10 places to 135.

In men's doubles, Leander Paes remained unchanged at number 13 and was highest ranked player from the country. Rohan Bopanna dropped three places to occupy 20th place.
