ITA NAIA Women's Rankings - March 15, 2017: Camille Gbaguidi keeps the lead ahead of Valeria Podda- View: 820 by Roxana Jo
The latest NAIA women's singles and doubles rankings failed to deliver changes at the top, but we had some nice shifts behind the leading two spots. Camille Gbaguidi from SCAD Savannah is still the best singles player, ahead of Valeria Podda from Georgia Gwinnett, just as they stood on the previous list.
Keiser's Megane Bianco jumped from 9th to 3rd while Brittany Augustine from San Diego Christian also had a good campaign, claiming the 4th place after previously being unranked. Klara Dohnalova is 5th, in front of some players who lost a few positions but still hang in the Top 10.
Karyna Sagali gained almost 30 places to be ranked 15th, ahead of Minja Gligic, Paige Murdoch, Jelena Djordan and Zlata Shuraeva who are also the new faces inside the Top 20.
Georgia Gwinnett dominates the doubles list, with two best-ranked teams coming from their roster. Chiara Di Salvo/Alyona Vasilyeva remained at the top ahead of their teammates Valeria Podda/Klara Dohnalova in second.
Megane Bianco/Julianna Heino from Keiser raced from 9th to 3rd, just ahead of Camille Gbaguidi/Paige Murdoch who slid for one spot. Brittany Augustine/Nadine Geschke and Mikayla Morgan/Elizabeth Kelley made the Top 10 after not being ranked last time around.
All in all, we have 8 new ranked teams and it will be interesting to see how many changes we will trace in April when the new rankings list is going to be released. Top 20 singles players: 1.
