RTS UPDATE: PLISKOVA PULLS AHEAD, CIBULKOVA CLIMBS INTO TOP 8

Karolina Pliskova's title in Doha vaults her up to the No.2 spot on the Road To Singapore and a former champion joins the fray - who else features in the Top 8 after the Qatar Total Open?

After a rollercoaster week in Doha, World No.3 Karolina Pliskova took home the title, posting back to back wins over Dominika Cibulkova and Caroline Wozniacki along the way. Her efforts vault her into the No.2 spot on the Road To Singapore leaderboard, leapfrogging past Australian Open finalist Venus Williams.

She's now the first player to win two WTA titles in 2017, and she's also 15 of the 16 matches she's played this year (including Fed Cup).

"I don't feel like I lost just once! I feel like I lost more times but it didn't happen and I got two trophies. Yeah, it's an amazing start [to the season]," Pliskova told WTA Insider after her win in Doha.

"It's always tough after the off-season to get in a good shape at the tournaments and get back on track. I think it's the best that I've ever had and the longest streak of winning matches that I had."

Another major RTS move this week belongs to reigning BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global champion Dominika Cibulkova, who reached the semifinals in Doha to storm into the Top 8.

Here are the biggest moves on the Road To Singapore this week:
Karolina Pliskova +2 (No.4 to No.2)
Venus Williams -1 (No.2 to No.3)
Johanna Konta -1 (No.3 to No.4)
Dominika Cibulkova +6 (No.14 to No.8)
Elina Svitolina -1 (No.8 to No.9)
Caroline Wozniacki +20 (No.29 to No.9)
