Elise Mertens klimt een plek op de wereldranglijst, David Goffin gaat achteruit

Elise Mertens climbed from seventeenth to sixteenth place on the WTA ranking published on Monday.

Moments later, however, she flushed her disappointment with a win in the doubles.

In the top 100 of women’s tennis, Alison Van Uytvanck climbs from 70th to 68th place without playing, Kirsten Flipkens is also two places ahead and is now 97th.

At the top of the ranking, Ashleigh Barty strengthened her leading position with a victory at the clay tournament of Stuttgart in Germany. In the final she beat the Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka, the number seven in the world. Barty has a big lead over the number two, the Japanese Naomi Osaka. Romanian Simona Halep follows in third place.
