WTA Rankings Update: Iga Swiatek continues as World Number One going into US Open, Kasatkina further into top ten after Granby win

US Open starts today and Iga Swiatek is number one for another week as the Polish player leads all players into the final major of the year.

Swiatek hasn't had much success in the past few weeks but her tremendous run earlier in the year ensures her as the number one player in the world. She is heavily favoured to finish that way as well because the parity in the WTA is too much.

There was only one change in the top 10 and it's Kasatkina moving up to number 9 ahead of Muguruza. The rest remained unchanged so we have Swiatek at one, Kontaveit at two, Sakkari at three, Badosa at four, Jabeur at five. Sabalenka is six, Halep is seven, Pegula is eight, Kasatkina is nine and Muguruza is tenth.

A couple of players played solid tennis last week and secured a new career high ranking for themselves. They are Shuai Zhang who is now 39th, Bernarda Pera who is 45th, Diane Parry who is 74th, Viktoriya Tomova who is 94th, Elisabetta Cocciaretto who is 99th and Laura Pigossi who is 100th. Check out the rankings below.
