Azarenka to take over No. 1 ranking from Sharapova

Victoria Azarenka will move back to No. 1 in the rankings.

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Victoria Azarenka will take over the No. 1 ranking from Maria Sharapova next week after Agnieszka Radwanska failed to win the Wimbledon title.

Azarenka will return to the top spot when the new rankings are released Monday, having been overtaken by Sharapova last month following the Russian's victory at the French Open.

Radwanska will be No. 2 in the new list. The Polish player would have become No. 1 for the first time if she had beaten Serena Williams in Saturday's Wimbledon final, but she lost 6-1, 5-7, 6-2.

Azarenka lost in the semifinals to Williams on Thursday. She won this year's Australian Open as part of a 26-match winning streak to start the season, and held the No. 1 ranking for 19 weeks before Sharapova's victory at Roland Garros.
