WTA Ranking Update: Swiatek begins 71st week as World No.1, Pegula back to World No.3 and Hibino up 52 spots in winning Prague

Albeit a quiet week with only the DC Open and Prague Open taking place, the latter now concluding means it is WTA Ranking Update time.

Despite only a few tournaments taking place, it has gleamed multiple changes in the top 20 with points falling off players rankings heading into the US Open hard court swing.

Jessica Pegula lost to Maria Sakkari in the semi-finals of DC Open, but finds herself back up to her previous career high of third meaning the Big Three at least for now has been muscled in on.

Elena Rybakina falls down to 4th, but won't face any challenge for that spot at least. Ons Jabeur won't play in Montreal this next week giving a perfect opportunity for Rybakina to build her lead.

Caroline Garcia could go back into the top five too only just under 100 points off Jabeur on 4685 compared to 4747. Coco Gauff in winning the title did not move up but did build up a slight gap on Maria Sakkari who moved back up into 8th at the expense of Petra Kvitova.

Other changes include Barbora Krejcikova and Beatriz Haddad Maia back into 11th and 12th and Belinda Bencic into 13th up two spots. Daria Kasatkina is down three to 14th.

Veronika Kudermetova also fell two spots to 16th allowing Madison Keys also into the top 15.

This cluster of players all the way down realistically to Karolina Muchova in 17th could easily all get mixed around again after Montreal due to the close-knit nature of them.

Kostyuk, Gracheva and Blinkova rise to new heights as Hibino up 52 spots in Prague win

New career highs also for Marta Kostyuk (32nd), Anna Blinkova (34th), Varvara Gracheva (41) and despite losing early in Washington, Bianca Andreescu heads back towards the top 40.

Many of this is down to Paula Badosa falling 12 spots down to 45th, Katerina Siniakova down nine to 46th. But rise wise, Linda Noskova went up 19 spots to 52nd with the 18-year-old reaching the Prague final.

Simona Halep will lose the last of her points in the coming weeks and is down to 58th. Nao Hibino too in winning Prague will go onto an ITF event instead of Montreal but is up 52 spots to 84th after winning in Czech Republic.
