WTA Rankings Update: Raducanu jumps 127 spots while Fernandez jumps 45 spots after US Open

Emma Raducanu and Leylah Fernandez contested the 2021 US Open and both significantly jumped on the latest WTA Rankings.

The 2021 US Open has truly been an event of teenagers as we saw two of them battle it out in the final and both were rewarded for their efforts with a significant jump on the rankings. But let's start at the top. There were only minor changes at the top as Barbora Krejcikova moved up to number 7 and Bianca Andreescu dropped down to number 20. Maria Sakkari moved up to 13, as well as Ons Jabeur who is now 18 and Coco Gauff who is 19.

Emma Raducanu broke a world record by securing 2040 points in the past 14 days earning herself a jump of 127 spots (another record) on the rankings to number 23. Even if Raducanu defends her US Open title next week she will still lose 40 points earner by reaching the event from the qualifiers. Leylah Fernandez also made a significant jump (45 spots) to number 28. In total 16 players reached a new career-high and they will be listed in the next paragraph.

New career-high rankings on the WTA are Krejcikova at 7, Sakkari at 13, Jabeur at 18, Gauff at 19, Raducanu at 23, Fernandez at 28, Zidansek at 34, Sorribes at 37, Samsonova at 48, Kalinina at 64, Gracheva at 76, Trevisan at 77, Minnen at 80, Sherif at 86, Parrizas at 88 and Liu at 96.
