Agnieszka Radwańska's loss to Caroline Wozniacki in the third round of the Madrid Open on Wednesday means the Polish star drops out of the WTA top ten for the first time since October 2011.

Wozniacki notched up a comfortable straight set victory (6-3, 6-2) in the third round clash, meaning Radwańska looks set to be placed No. 13 by WTA.
She could fall further to No. 14, given that rising Czech Lucie Safarova is still in the tournament (the latter plays her quarter-final against Wozniacki on Thursday afternoon).
There had been high hopes that Radwańska would move up a gear this season, with the 25-year-old hiring veteran Martina Navratilova as a part-time coach.
But the Kraków-born star has struggled to raise her game, and the Czech legend stood down from Radwańska's team in late April.
Radwańska has only made one semi-final in 2015 so far – the relatively low key Katowice Open on home ground in Poland.
Fans are hoping that Radwańska, who has been praised by Wimbledon-winner Andy Murray for ''the variety” of her game, will manage to find form for both the London tournament and the French Open. (nh)
