18. Ryoko Fuda JPN (161)
19. Suchanan Viratprasert THAI (179) NEW ENTRY
20. Seiko Okamoto JPN (181) NEW ENTRY


Shinobu Asagoe took the "bronze medal" to Shuai Peng who lost 6 places in the world ranking with the new system.
Zi Yan makes a Top 10 entry at the beginning of 2006, and I think that she really deserves it considering her current tennis level. Step by step, she prooves that she's not only a double specialist.
Saori Obata is up 2 spots in the Asian Top 20 (and 7 places in the world ranking) ...without playing last week (only due to new ranking system).
Suchanan Viratprasert and Seiko Okamoto benefits from the new ranking system to be part of the Top 20. They're up more than 1à places in the world ranking with the new system.
