With the 2021 WTA Finals points dropped off, Garbine Muguruza has suffered a massive decline in the rankings, while the United States now has two women in the Top 4, Jessica Pegula and Coco Gauff.
The 2021 WTA Finals champion Garbine Muguruza has nosedived in the latest rankings, falling out of the Top 20, 44 spots to No.57. The 2021 WTA Finals runner-up Anett Kontaveit has also fallen significantly, from No.3 to No.17.
Jessica Pegula won her first WTA 1000 title over the weekend in Guadalajara and now the American has risen to No.3, while Guadalajara quarterfinalist Coco Gauff has climbed to No.4 from No.7. They are the first pair of U.S. women in the top four spots since Serena and Venus Williams were up there in 2010. Let’s mention that Pegula and Gauff are doubles partners and they are also in the Top 4 of the WTA doubles rankings.
Iga Swiatek of Poland remains the world No.1, Ons Jabeur of Tunisia is still No.2. Following the quartet atop the rankings, we have the other four players who qualified for the WTA Finals in Fort Worth — Caroline Garcia, Aryna Sabalenka, Daria Kasatkina and Maria Sakkari.
Veronika Kudermetova cracked the Top 10, reaching a career-high ranking of No.9.
To be honest I’m surprised she is still ranked that high…I feel like she hasn’t won any matches at all
She seemed a shadow of herself; slow and out of sorts. Just a note that Elena Vesnina is
listed as retired on her wiki.
