Former World No.1 Naomi Osaka is creeping back up to the top of the WTA rankings after her title at the 2020 US Open. Osaka, who claimed her third major title with a three-set victory over Victoria Azarenka on Saturday at the US Open, rises six spots to No.3 in the world, and is less than 600 points behind Simona Halep for No.2.

Azarenka also jumps higher in the rankings after her runner-up performance at the US Open. The Belarusian, who played her first Grand Slam final in seven years over the weekend in New York, rises to 14 in the WTA singles rankings, her highest ranking since May of 2016.

American Jennifer Brady, who wowed with her first-strike tennis and heavy topspin en route to her first Grand Slam semifinal finish in New York, rises to a career-best 25 in the world, and her fellow American Shelby Rogers is the biggest riser inside the Top 100, thanks to her quarterfinal performance at the US Open. Rogers comes in 38 spots higher and No.55 in the world this week.

Romania’s Patricia Maria Tig, who won the title at Istanbul over the weekend, jumps 30 spots to 58 in the world, while former World No.30 Aliaksandra Sasnovich of Belarus returns to the Top 100, rising 11 spots to No.95.

Bulgaria’s Tsvetana Pironkova, who was unranked while making her quarterfinal run at the US Open, comes in at 156 this week. The 33-year-old earned a wild card into Roland Garros on Monday.
