Paris, Feb 14: Russian Maria Sharapova overtook Czech Petra Kvitova to take the world number two spot in the latest WTA rankings released on Monday.


Sharapova was beaten in the quarterfinals of the Paris Open last week by Germany's Angelique Kerber, who went on to take the title, but the former world number one benefitted from the absence of last year's Paris winner Petra Kvitova.

Kvitova drops to third while Kerber moves up five places to 22nd.
