Czech me out: Muchova top 10 debut means Czech Republic will have four players in WTA top 12, more than any other country

Karolina Muchova’s recent victory put the Czech ace in a special position in the WTA rankings as of next week.

The 26-year-old defeated the world number two Belarus’ Aryna Sabalenka in the semifinal of the Cincinnati Open (Western & Southern Open) with a score of 6-7, 6-3, 6-2.

With the win, the Czech Republic now has four players in the WTA rankings, more than any other country.

The other three Czech players are Petra Kvitova, Marketa Vondrousova and Barbora Krejcikova.

The result was an impressive one on so many accounts for Muchova who would be also looking to further improve her performances ahead of the upcoming US Open.

The Olomouc-born player has already played in the final of the Grand Slam earlier this year when she lost to the world number one Iga Swiatek in the French Open with a score of 6–2, 5–7, 6–4. It was her best performance to date in any of the major events.

Despite that, Muchova’s record while playing in New York has been a pretty average one as she has never played in the quarterfinal or beyond.

Her best outing at the Flashing Medows was playing in the fourth round back in 2020 where she lost to the former world number one Belarus’ Victoria Azarenka with a score of 5-7, 6-1, 6-4.
