Emma Raducanu sees her stunt victory at the US Open translated into no less than 127 places in the new WTA ranking. The eighteen-year-old British, who fought his way from qualifying to the grand slam title in New York, ends up at number 23 on Monday.
Her Canadian peer Leylah Fernandez, who just as surprisingly made it to the final at Flushing Meadows, moves up 45 positions and is 28th.
At the very top of the ranking, Australian Ashleigh Barty remains number 1 ahead of Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka. Japan’s Naomi Osaka, who lost to Leylah Fernandez in the third round, drops from three to five. Czech Karolina Pliskova and Ukrainian Elina Svitolina pass her.
Elise Mertens keeps sixteenth place but loses her number 1 in the double ranking to her Taiwanese partner Hsieh Su-wei.
Alison Van Uytvanck remains the Belgian number two at number 57 (+4) followed by her life partner Greet Minnen. It reached the third round in New York and jumped from 104 to 78, her highest ranking so far. Lower in the ranking are Maryna Zanevska (104th, +9), Kirsten Flipkens (125th, -9) and Ysaline Bonaventure (131st, -2).
