Wozniacki takes back #1 ranking from Clijsters

(CNN) -- Caroline Wozniacki has regained the women's world number one ranking from Belgium's Kim Clijsters, after beating Shahar Peer to reach the semifinals of the Dubai Tennis Championships on Friday.

The Dane eased past the ninth seed 6-2 6-4, and will now replace Australian Open champion Clijsters when the new WTA rankings are published on Monday.

Clijsters, who skipped the hard-court event in the United Arab Emirates, will have held the number one ranking for just seven days.

The 27-year-old rose to the top spot again -- having first done so in 2003 --when she reached the last four of the Paris Open, but left Wozniacki with a chance to reclaim the position when she lost to Petra Kvitova in the final.

Well, that certainly didn't last long *LOL*. 

It's like a game of musical chairs I'm sure Kim will take the ranking back again with the next big tournament she wins. 

That's the women's game for you these days, full of unpredictability.
