With another week concluding on the WTA Tour all eyes turn to the rankings but this time, there are no changes in the Top 10.

Before the players compete at the Sunshine Double in Indian Wells and Miami, some of them used a chance to collect points and prize money at a couple of WTA 250 events that were organized in Austin and Monterrey.

The 2023 ATX Open in Austin was won by Marta Kostyuk. The Ukrainian won her first WTA title and made a strong statement after her win over Russia's Varvara Gracheva, which was praised by some and hated by others. In the new WTA Rankings, Kostyuk moved to her new career high as she's ranked 40th now.

The second event that was played, the 2023 Monterrey Open, saw Donna Vekic win her first title in two years and that also means a significant move in the rankings. The Croatian is now 23rd, only four places from her career-high 19th that she reached four years ago.

Danielle Collins and Katie Volynets, who were semifinalists in Austin also made significant moves. The 2022 Australian Open finalist improved by seven places to 31st while the 21-year-old moved up by 18 to 74th.

Elise Mertens and Lin Zhu, semifinalists from Monterrey, also saw a significant improvement. The Belgian player is now 37th after climbing up five places, and the Chinese player moved up by eight spots to 33rd.

Despite Caroline Garcia's final appearance in Monterrey, there was no change in the Top 10. Iga Swiatek leads with massive 10585 points, while the second Aryna Sabalenka has 6100. She is then followed by Jessica Pegula who has 5495 and fourth Ons Jabeur with 4921 points.

The French finalist from Monterrey is behind the Tunisian as Garcia now cut her opponent's lead over her to only 16 points. 6th Coco Gauff has 4251 points, 7th Maria Sakkari has 3451 points while the eighth Daria Kasatkina has 3375 points.

Two more players are in the Top 10 as Belinda Bencic is ranked ninth with 3360 points and Elena Rybakina, the 2022 Wimbledon champion, is 10th with 2935 points. To see all ranks, be sure to check out the full WTA Rankings on our dedicated page.
