Swiatek Keeps Massive Lead In Latest WTA Rankings As Collins Moves To Top 15

by Erik Virostko

Iga Swiatek is still the highest ranked player on the WTA Tour, and with a big lead, and that didn't change over the past week.

The new WTA Rankings were published and even though there were some minor changes in the Top 10, none of the players in the Top 5 moved, occupying the same spots as the week before.

That means Swiatek leads ahead of everyone, and ahead of the clay-court part of the season, the Polish player has a really massive lead over the closest competitor, who is Aryna Sabalenka.

The world no. 1 currently has 10,835 points to her name, while the second Belarusian has only 8,045 points, creating nearly a 3,000-point gap between the two best players in the world.

Close behind Sabalenka is Coco Gauff, who has 7,205, being relatively close to the former world no. 1, with the third Elena Rybakina being a bit further with 5,848 points to her name.

Jessica Pegula is in the fifth place, almost 1,000 points behind the Kazakhstani player with 4,870. Behind the Top 5, three players moved up a spot because of Ons Jabeur's slide down the rankings.

The Tunisian couldn't defend her Charleston title, and as a result, she dropped from sixth to ninth position, with 3,658 points. Players that moved up by one spot are sixth Maria Sakkari, seventh Qinwen Zheng, and eighth Marketa Vondrousova.

The last player in the Top 10 is Jelena Ostapenko, who has 3,438, but 11th Daria Kasatkina is closing up after her Charleston Open final run, as she currently has 3,313 points.

However, both of these players will be likely threatened later in the season, as the Charleston Open champion, is already up to the 15th place after winning back-to-back titles in Miami and Charleston.

She currently has 2,639 points, and in the WTA Race, the American moved up to the fourth place already, showing the incredible form that she has at the moment.
