WTA Ranking Update: Iga Swiatek re-claims World No. 1 from Aryna Sabalenka as Beatriz Haddad Maia closes in on Top 10

The WTA Ranking has been updated following the conclusion of the 2023 WTA Finals in Cancun and the WTA Elite Trophy in Zhuhai, with Iga Swiatek re-claiming World No. 1 from Aryna Sabalenka as Beatriz Haddad Maia closes in on the Top 10.

Four-time Grand Slam champion Swiatek was No. 1 for 75 weeks (the tenth-longest amount of time in WTA Ranking history) before she was overtaken by Sabalenka in September. This came after the 22-year-old suffered a shock exit in the fourth round of the US Open, thus failing to defend her title while Sabalenka succeeded in making it to the final.

However, Swiatek has seemed to be back on form recently, winning the China Open last month before soaring to success at the WTA Finals. As Sabalenka's record in the Group Stage was 2-1, Swiatek had to win the tournament with a 3-0 or 2-1 record herself in order to re-gain No. 1.

In the end, Swiatek won the tournament without even dropping a set, winning all of her round-robin clashes and eliminating Sabalenka in the semi-final 6-3, 6-2, before defeating Jessica Pegula in the final 6-1, 6-0. Therefore, she now begins her 76th week as World No. 1 and has ensured her place as year-end No. 1 for the second consecutive year.

Haddad Maia biggest mover in Top 20

The only other change in the Top 10 was a switch between Ons Jabeur and Marketa Vondrousova, as the former rose one place to No. 6 and the latter dropped one spot to No. 7.

Meanwhile, Haddad Maia rose eight places to No. 11 after winning the WTA Elite Trophy last week. The Brazilian player defeated Qinwen Zheng in a close-knit final to lift the trophy and increase her points total to 2855. Meanwhile, Zheng moved up three places to break into the Top 15, earning a career-high ranking of No. 15.

Elsewhere, Alycia Parks re-entered the Top 50 by moving up seven spots to No. 46, while Elisabetta Cocciaretto fell fourteen places to No. 52.

The biggest mover in the Top 100 was Anna Kalinskaya, who rose 38 places to land at No. 77 after she won the WTA 125 Dow Tennis Classic this week.
