Milos Raonic rose three spots to No. 6 the ATP men's tennis rankings, while fellow Canadian Eugenie Bouchard also reached a career high as she moved up six spots to No. 7 on the women's WTA list.

Wimbledon doubles champion Vasek Pospisil of Vancouver also made a big jump, surging from No. 94 to No. 33 in the men's doubles rankings.

Bouchard, from Westmount, Que., made the jump after advancing to Saturday's Wimbledon women's final, where she fell 6-3, 6-0 to Petra Kvitova. Bouchard, a former junior Wimbledon champion, is the first Canadian to reach a senior singles Grand Slam final.

With the jump, Bouchard surpassed Carling Bassett-Seguso as the highest ranked Canadian in WTA history.

Kvitova's second Wimbledon title allowed her to improve two places to No. 4.

The top three places on the WTA Tour did not change, with Serena Williams at No. 1, Li Na at No. 2, and Simona Halep at No. 3.
