PARIS (AP) -  Kim Clijsters has regained the No. 1 ranking.

The Belgian took another big step in her return to tennis by defeating Jelena Dokic of Australia 6-3, 6-0 on Friday to reach the semifinals of the Open Gaz de France.

Clijsters will take the top spot from Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark when the new rankings are released Monday.

Clijsters has been the most dominant player on the WTA Tour of late. She won the Australian Open last month for her fourth Grand Slam tournament title while Wozniacki is still chasing her first major.
