WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Fresh off her fourth Wimbledon singles title, Venus Williams has moved into the Top 20 in the rankings for the first time in a year.

Williams is up to 17 after entering the tournament at number-31. With Saturday's victory she became the lowest-ranked women's champion at the All-England Club.

Runner-up Marion Bartoli of France moved from 19th to a career-high eleventh. Amelie Mauresmo, who lost in the fourth round at Wimbledon, dropped from fourth to sixth.

Justine Henin keeps the top ranking despite losing to Bartoli in the semifinals.

There's little movement in the men's rankings after top-ranked Roger Federer beat number-two Rafael Nadal in the men's final.

Semifinalist Novak Djokovic moved up one spot to a career-best number-three, swapping places with Andy Roddick.
