Swiatek continues to dominate the WTA rankings

Swiatek continues to dominate the WTA rankings

Poland’s Iga Swiatek, who retained her Roland-Garros title on Saturday, continues to reign over the WTA, according to the ranking published on Monday, while her surprising rival in the final, Czech Karolina Muchova, jumped 27 places, in 16th position.

World No.1 for more than a year (April 2022), Swiatek, 22 and now four Grand Slam titles, is still ahead of Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka (2nd), beaten in the semi-finals on clay in Paris.

Third place, on the other hand, changes hands since it is now occupied by Elena Rybakina. Although forfeited before her third round at Roland-Garros, the Kazakh doubles the American Jessica Pegula, who was also quickly eliminated at Porte d’Auteuil, where she reached the quarter-finals last year.

Conversely, the Brazilian Beatriz Haddad Maia is reaping the benefits of her fine run up to the semi-finals, by entering the Top 10 for the first time in her career (10th, +4).

But this gain in the standings is nothing compared to that of Karolina Muchova, revelation of the fortnight: the 26-year-old Czech player, close to the feat in the final against Swiatek, is propelled to 16th place (+27 ), the best ranking of his career.
