Following a run at Wimbledon that saw her make it to the finals, Eugenie Bouchard became the highest-ranked Canadian women's player ever when the new WTA rankings were released Monday.

Bouchard moved up six spots from No. 13 to No. 7 in the new rankings, also marking her first career appearance in the top 10.

The previous high mark for a Canadian woman was held by Carling Bassett-Seguso, who reached No. 8 in her career.

Though she fell to Petra Kvitova in straight sets in the final match at Wimbledon, Bouchard became the first Canadian woman to reach a grand slam final. Earlier this season, the 20-year-old made the semifinals of both the Australian Open and French Open.

For her part, Kvitova moved up two places to No. 4 in the new rankings. Despite a subpar Wimbledon performance, Serena Williams remained No. 1.
