DOHA, QATAR (AP) - Caroline Wozniaki has officially reclaimed the No. 1 ranking in women’s tennis, one week after surrendering it to Kim Clijsters.

The 20-year-old Dane won her first singles title of 2011 on Sunday, beating Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-1, 6-3 in the Dubai Championships final. Although she has been one of the most consistent players on the WTA Tour, Wozniacki has been criticized for being No. 1 despite never having won a Grand Slam singles title.

Clijsters, who has won three majors since coming out of retirement, dropped back to No. 2.

Vera Zvonareva is ranked third in Monday’s rankings, followed by Sam Stosur, Francesca Schiavone, Jelena Jankovic, Li Na, Venus Williams, Victoria Azarenka and Agnieszka Radwanska.
