Second Serve


By Chris Oddo | @TheFanChild | Monday April 1, 2024

Winning a maiden Masters 1000 title has done wonders for Danielle Collins ranking. The 30-year-old American jumps 31 spots in Monday’s table, and is the biggest riser inside the Top 100.

Read on to find out more about this week’s risers…

Collins Soars Back into Top 25

Former World No.7 Collins jumps inside the Top 25 once again, rising from 53 to 22 on the strength of her third career title run.

22 is Collins’ best ranking since January of 2023.

The American, who plans to retire at the end of this season, toppled Elena Rybakina in Saturday’s Miami final for her second Top 5 win.

Alexandrova Rises to 15

Russia’s Ekaterina Alexandrova jumps to a career-high ranking of 15 after reaching the semifinals at Miami. The 29-year-old took out World No.1 Iga Swiatek in the round of 16, then upset No.5-seeded Jessica Pegula in the quarterfinals.

Career-Highs for Yuan Yue and Diane Parry

A title at Austin plus five wins across Indian Wells and Miami have taken China’s Yuan Yue from 68 to 37 in the rankings. This week the 25-year-old jumps 12 spots from 49 to 37, after winning a round at the Miami Open.

Diane Parry has also been on a tear since Austin. She has six matches (two in Austin, three at Indian Wells and one in Miami) to rise from 62 to a career-high ranking of 51.

Other Notable Risers

Maria Sakkari: In February, Sakkari dropped out of the Top 10 for the first time in over two years, but the Greek has been strong in March, and backed up an Indian Wells final run by reaching the Miami quarterfinals. She rises two spots from No.9 to No.7.

Yulia Putintseva: The former World No.27 reached the round of 16 at Indian Wells and the quarterfinals at Miami to jump from 79 to 52. The 29-year-old is up 16 spots this week, thanks to her run to the last eight at Miami.
