Ash Barty is closing in one No.1 and teenagers are surging in the post #RG19 WTA Singles rankings.
Welcome to the Top 2, Ashleigh Barty!
The 23-year-old Aussie celebrates her first Roland Garros title and her first ever week in the WTA’s Top 2 on Monday, and Barty isn’t the only player that makes a splash in this weeks’ rankings.
Marketa Vondrousova rises 22 spots to No.16—a new career-high for the 19-year-old Czech, while Johanna Konta rises to No.18 and takes her spot back in the WTA’s Top 20 for the first time since last March.
Croatia’s Petra Martic cracks a career-high at No.24 as a result of her quarter-final at Roland Garros, while 17-year-old Amanda Anisimova climbs 25 spots to No.26—the American isn’t just the only 17-year-old in the Top 100 she’s now the only one inside the Top 30.
Meet Amanda Anisimova.

Another American who made some noise at Roland Garros was Sonya Kenin—she rises from 35 to 30 for her Top 30 debut after upsetting Serena Williams and reaching the second week in Paris.
And not to be outdone, Poland’s Iga Swiatek is the Top 100’s second biggest biggest riser in this week’s rankings. She surges 37 spots to No.67, making her Top 70 debut as a result of a quarter-final appearance in Paris.

Swiatek is one of six teenagers in the WTA’s Top 100 and one of four players 18 or younger in the top 75 (also Anisimova, Andreescu and Potapova).
Making a Top 100 debut this is Aliona Bolsova, who rises 47 spots from 137 to 90 as a result of her round of 16 appearance at Roland Garros.
