New Zealand tennis number one Marina Erakovic has climbed 13 places to 55 in the latest WTA singles rankings.

Erakovic's improvement came after she made the final of the Quebec indoor tournament at the weekend, though she lost in straight sets to the Czech Lucie Safarova.

Erakovic reached a career high ranking of 39 last year. She's also ranked 31 in doubles.
