WTA Rankings Update: Swiatek holds number one as Jabeur continues rise

After a brilliant week of tennis in Rome where Iga Swiatek defended her trophy, the Polish player is firmly in the lead on the new WTA Rankings.

Leading up to the Roland Garros Swiakte has a firm lead ahead of Barbora Krejcikova who is still not playing due to injury. Very close to Krejcikova are Paula Badosa and Maria Sakkari who both held their positions on this week's rankings. Anett Kontaveit is 5th with Ons Jabeur continuing her rise moving up to number 6. Sabalenka moved up to 7 as well with Pliskova dropping two spots to 8.

The rest of the top 10 remained the same as Muguruza and Collins finish it off. Several players made big moves with Petra Martic continuing her slide falling back 23 spots to number 70. Bianca Andreescu went the other way moving up 18 spots to number 72. Another big mover was Claire Liu who jumped 26 spots to number 92. Check out the full rankings below.
