WTA Rankings Update: Barty retains No. 1 while Osaka jumps to No. 2

After winning the Australian Open title Naomi Osaka climbed to No. 2 in the rankings while Ashleigh Barty retained the No. 1 spot for now.

It was a strong showing from Naomi Osaka who won her 2nd Australian Open title on Saturday and 4th Grand Slam title overall allowing her to jump to number two in the world on today's rankings. Ashleigh Barty retained the number one spot despite a disappointing run at the Australian Open that saw her fall short of the final. A run to the semifinal allowed Serena Williams to climb back into the top 10 after a long time being ranked as number 7 currently.

American duo Pegula and Brady had strong showings in Australia as well being one the biggest climbers this week as Brady jumped 11 spots to number 13 in the world while Pegula jumped 18 spots to number 43 in the world. Su-Wei Hsieh lost her number one doubles ranking to Aryna Sabaleka this week but also jumped 21 spots to world number 50 in singles.
