Vondrousova Debuts In Top 10 After Unexpected Wimbledon Triumph

Vondrousova Debuts In Top 10 After Unexpected Wimbledon Triumph

by Sebastian Dahlman

Marketa Vondrousova is enjoying life right now as the Czech player became a Top 10 player on the WTA Tour following her Wimbledon triumph.

The reigning Olympic Games silver medalist didn't have any huge expectations coming to London hoping to win a few matches, but she actually won more than a few. She won 7 in total which means that she lifted the trophy on Saturday.

It's been something she's dreamed of for many years but she certainly didn't expect it to come on grass. It hasn't been a great surface for her traditionally, but she earned it with a fabulous performance against Ons Jabeur in the final.

The win is significant in many ways. Not only does she join the elite club of Grand Slam winners, but she'll also be in a prime position to use this momentum and find more success in the coming months. For a player who spent a lot of time on the sidelines with injuries, the chance to play consistently is a great blessing.

Even so, the chance to do so with great draws doesn't hurt. The win in London earned her 2000 WTA points, enough to send her into the Top 10. She debuts in the Top 10 as World No. 10, right ahead of Daria Kasatkina, who slides down to number 11.

She has a total of 3106 points, 2000 of those coming from Wimbledon alone. It puts her in a great position to further that tally and perhaps book a spot at the WTA Finals later this year. Ahead of the Czech player is Maria Sakkari, who leads her by 204 points.

It's a well-deserved moment for Vondrousova, who broke out a few years ago with a run to the final of Roland Garros but never quite got that big breakthrough on the WTA Tour.
