Ekaterina Alexandrova achieved her 5th grass-court win in the opening round of the Bad Homburg Open against Nadia Podoroska with a decisive 6-3, 6-0 victory, overtaking Ons Jabeur as the player with the most victories on the surface in the last three years.
The Russian tennis player leads the top-10 list of players with the most wins on grass since 2022, with only one former Wimbledon champion included. Kazakhstan's Elena Rybakina, who won Wimbledon in 2022, appears in seventh position in the ranking.

Alexandrova claims top spot for grass-court wins

The short grass-court season each year allows players to compete in just a couple of tournaments in the three weeks leading up to Wimbledon. However, some have managed to maintain good consistency over the past few years and will be players to watch at the All England Club next week.
Without much spotlight on her name, Ekaterina Alexandrova holds the highest number of wins on grass. The Russian is competing in the Bad Homburg Open and easily surpassed her debut against Podoroska, reaching 21 wins on grass since 2022, surpassing Jabeur.
The Tunisian remains at 20 wins, 12 of which were achieved in the last two editions of Wimbledon. Jabeur was the runner-up in 2022 behind Elena Rybakina, while in 2023 she fell to Marketa Vondrousova.
Rybakina secured her first grass-court win of the year during the Berlin Ladies Open last Thursday after defeating Veronika Kudermetova. In the quarterfinals, she had to retire in the middle of the match against Victoria Azarenka after just four games, raising concerns about her physical condition once again. The Kazakh appears 7th among players with the most wins on the surface.

Rybakina won her only Grand Slam title at 2022 Wimbledon.
In third place on the list is 2-time Nottingham Open champion Katie Boulter with 19 wins. The Brit has already notched up 5 wins this year to defend her title in Nottingham and will enter Wimbledon with maximum confidence, where she will be the local favorite and seeded in the tournament for the first time.
In fourth place, there is a three-way tie between Caroline Garcia, Beatriz Haddad Maia, and Jelena Ostapenko. The three have had similar fortunes on the Tour, ranging between world No. 15 and No. 25 over the past year. During the grass swing, they have a good opportunity to go deeper at Wimbledon and reclaim positions, having all reached the top-10 in the past.
