Others on the rise
The 2015 junior champion, Paula Badosa, reached the fourth round at a major for the first time in Paris this year. The 22-year-old Spaniard jumps 21 places to No.66 following victories over Grand Slam champions Sloane Stephens and Jelena Ostapenko.
Czech Barbora Krejcikova was better known for her doubles exploits and had consigned herself to never cracking the top 100 in singles, but drawing on her late coach Jana Novotna's inspiration, the 24-year-old reached the fourth round, shaving 29 places off her ranking to leap to No.85 in the rankings.
In a passing of the baton for Danish tennis, following Caroline Wozniacki’s retirement after the Australian Open, 17-year-old Clara Tauson won through qualifying to make her Grand Slam main draw debut where she beat US Open semi-finalist, No.21 seed Jennifer Brady to jump 33 spots to world No.155.
