In the Top-10 of the WTA Ranking, Sofia Kenin, number 4 in the world and Petra Kvitova, who are among the best ten tennis players on the planet, earn two positions. Serena Williams, number 10 in the world, is now in danger of getting out.

The big leap could only be that of the winner of the Roland Garros 2020, the Pole Iga Swiatek, who earns 1760 points and 37 positions, reaching the position number 17 in the world and ready to enter even more among the top tennis players.

Great results also for Fiona Ferro who gains 7 positions and becomes number 42 and Danielle Collins who gains 11 positions. Incredible jump also for Nadia Podoroska who enters the Top-50 and even gains 83 positions. Great result for Martina Trevisan who gains 76 positions and enters the top 100 in the world, stopping at number 83.

As for the Top-10, Ashleigh Barty leads the Ranking, followed by Simona Halep and Naomi Osaka. Fifth position for Elina Svitolina, followed by Karolina Pliskova, Bianca Andreescu, Petra Kvitova, Kiki Bertens and Serena Williams.

Garbine Muguruza, Victoria Azarenka and Johanna Konta are also in the top twenty tennis players in the world.

Kenin and Swiatek's words

After the final defeat of the French Open 2020 against Iga Swiate, the American Sofia Kenin said "Right now, I'm feeling pretty disappointed and sad.

Clearly she played a great game, but my leg wasn't in the best shape. I won't use this as an excuse, but after the first set I had to call the physiotherapist because I couldn't move. I won in Australia, I played a tough match with Mertens at the US Open and here I made it to the final.

I have a very good balance in the Grand Slams, it's really a shame that the season is almost over. I wish there were more tournaments. Now I will rest, let my leg rest and do a thorough preparation for 2021. I miss life out of the bubble.

I feel I have been in a bubble for several months, so in some ways I'm happy to be able to lead a normal life from now on. I can go shopping, now it's my turn!" Swiatek said: "I'm really proud of myself, I've done an amazing job these past two weeks.

I didn't expect to win this tournament, it's something incredible for me, it's one of those experiences that change your life forever. Probably now the confrontations with Aga Radwanska will rain, but I have to remain constant for many years to hope to be considered the best player in the history of Poland.

I have a lot of work to do. It would be worth asking what is the role of psychology in sport and in performance. Otherwise it would not be explained that sometimes you win a tournament and other times you go out in the first round. "
