WTA Ranking Update: Ostrava finalists Sabalenka and Azarenka move up while Barty retains number one spot

After a while we finally have a new WTA Ranking and while there was no changes at the top Sabalenka and Azarenka moved up.

The WTA returned last week with a strong event held in Ostrava, Czech Republic. The event featured a strong field which saw many players participate but in the end, it was Aryna Sabalenka and Victoria Azarenka. The all-Belarusian final didn't end up what many thought it would be as Azarenka suffered from match-induced migraines which severely hindered her display. Even so, their good result allowed them to move up in the rankings. Both of them moved up one spot with Sabalenka now being ranked 11th while Azarenka 13th.

The top 10 of the world stayed the same with Ashleigh Barty still ranked as number one despite not playing any event since the restart. A good result from Coco Gauff allowed her to move up 8 spots with the young American now being ranked as number 47. She won't remember this event fondly as she threw away the victory she had against Sabalenka. The biggest jumpers this week were Sara Sorribes Tormo and Babora Krejckikova who both moved up significantly this week.
