After her efforts in the French Open last month, Heather Watson has regained top spot as Britain’s number one female player.

She successfully managed to reach the second round in Paris, and that has seen her reclaim the position held by Laura Robson - who is currently out through injury.

It's a dramatic turnaround for the 22-year-old after a disappointing season last year, as a result of a shoulder injury that prevented her from playing for two months.

Former No. 1 Robson, who has recently been announced as part of the Wimbledon commentary team this summer, has only played once this year after undergoing wrist surgery.

The news will give Watson a confidence boost ahead of the Aegon Classic in Birmingham later this week, and she's now ranked at number 69 in the world as she looks to go even higher than the 39th spot she held in February last year.

Some good news has come from Andy Murray’s French Open efforts as well, after it was announced today that he is back in the World's top 5 and will enter Wimbledon seeded third. Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are the two ahead of the Scot in the pecking order.
