Sara Errani is up to at least #26. She'll be #24 if she wins Budapest, #25 if she loses and Carla Suarez Navarro wins Estoril, #26 if she loses and Kaia Kanepi wins Estoril.
Singles - Semifinal: Elena Vesnina def. (5) Marina Erakovic 6-2 6-4
Even if you ignore the fact that Elena Vesnina had already upset two seeds here, this was probably close to inevitable; Marina Erakovic had hurt herself the day before. But it's not good news for the final, because Vesnina can't win finals. We show Erakovic ending the week at #39.
