Ranking reshuffle: Unveiling the twists and turns in women’s tennis post-Roland Garros

In this quick overview of the Top 100 rankings in women’s tennis, we delve into the latest developments following Roland Garros. From Iga Swiatek’s continued dominance at the top to the remarkable surges by Mayar Sherif and Jasmine Paolini, this analysis provides insights into the recent ups and downs of the tennis elite.

Top 20 rankings overview

Winning her third Roland Garros, Iga Swiatek is extending her stay atop the WTA rankings for the 63rd consecutive week. She is 928 points ahead of second-ranked Aryna Sabalenka, who had a chance to dethrone her from the No.1 spot, but lost in the French Open semifinals while she had to go one match further than the Pole in Paris.

Elena Rybakina of Kazakhstan took over the No.3 position from American Jessica Pegula, who will remember the 2023 French Open for food poisoning that made her first few days in Paris a nightmare. Still, Pegula remains in the Top 5.

Following her semifinal run at Roland Garros, Beatriz Haddad Maia of Brazil has broken into the Top 10.

Karolina Muchova climbs 27 spots to a career-high No.16 following her first appearance in a Grand Slam final.

Biggest rises and new career-highs in the Top 100

New mom on Tour Elina Svitolina has made the biggest ascend of 119 spots to No.73, as the former world No.3 followed up her Strasbourg title with an impressive run to Roland Garros quarterfinals.

Mayar Sherif of Egypt lost in the second round of the French Open, but then went straight to Croatia where she saved six championship to prevail in the WTA 125 Makarska Open final against Jasmine Paolini. As a result of her outstanding performance, Sherif has soared 14 positions in the rankings, reaching a career-high No.40. Similarly, Paolini’s noteworthy achievements have propelled her to her best-ever ranking position, securing the No.42 spot.

Elina Avanesyan‘s extraordinary journey as the fifth lucky loser to reach the fourth round in a Grand Slam during the Open Era propelled her up the rankings by a staggering 54 places, landing her at No.80. Another notable achievement came from Sara Sorribes Tormo, who made her debut in the Grand Slam round of 16 and experienced a remarkable climb of 50 spots, securing the No.82 ranking position.

Croatian-born American Bernarda Pera played the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time and that result took her to a new career-high of No.27.

Nosedives in the updated WTA Top 100

Leylah Fernandez, who reached the quarterfinals of Roland Garros in 2022, experienced the most significant decline within the Top 100 rankings. The Canadian was unable to replicate her previous achievement and suffered a second-round exit at this year’s French Open, resulting in a drop of 46 spots, placing her at No.95.

Last year’s Roland Garros semifinalist Martina Trevisan got knocked out in the first round this time around and fell 39 spots to No.63.

Swiatek’s clay mastery prevails over Haddad Maia in Roland Garros semifinals

In the second semifinal showdown at Roland Garros 2023, the two-time champion Iga Swiatek showcased her mastery on clay as she defeated first-time Grand Slam semifinalist Beatriz Haddad Maia, 6-2 7-6(7). Not only did Swiatek secure her spot in the championship match, but she also solidified her reign as the world No.1.

Iga Swiatek Roland Garros 2023

Entering the semifinal with a positive 1-0 head-to-head record against Swiatek, Haddad Maia burst onto the court with an emphatic love break, catching everyone by surprise. The Brazilian’s remarkable start hinted at a potential upset, but Swiatek quickly regrouped and countered with a stunning break of her own. From that point on, Swiatek dominated proceedings, capturing four consecutive games and comfortably clinching the first set.

Determined to seize the opportunity of a major semifinal, the world No.14 Haddad Maia displayed her resilience and tenacity. Undeterred by the scoreline, she continued to exude energy and confidence throughout the match. In the second set, Haddad Maia once again found herself in the lead, breaking Swiatek’s serve and establishing a 3-1 advantage. However, her joy was short-lived as the Polish powerhouse fought back, leveling the set at 3-3.

The intensity continued to rise as Haddad Maia refused to back down, pushing Swiatek to the brink in the Pole’s following two service games. The Brazilian failed to convert four break points, but with the scoreline standing at 5-5 in the second set, the match was far from decided.

After a grueling 69 minutes of intense battle in the second set, the tension reached its zenith as the set ventured into a high-stakes tiebreak. For a moment, Swiatek looked concerned, and for a reason. Hungry for victory, Haddad Maia earned a set point at 6-5, but couldn’t capitalize on the opportunity, sending a wave of relief through Swiatek’s camp. Soon afterwards, the Brazilian saved a match point, executing a courageous winner down the line, but Swiatek converted her second match point in the 85-minute second set.

The 2020 and 2022 Roland Garros winner Swiatek will face unseeded Karolina Muchova in the final, as the Czech battled past second seed Aryna Sabalenka in a thrilling three-setter earlier on Thursday. Sabalenka’s elimination in the semifinals and Swiatek’s run to the final mean that the Pole will keep her top ranking which she has so far held for 62 consecutive weeks.

Beatriz Haddad Maia stuns Ons Jabeur in Roland Garros quarterfinals

Appearing in her first Grand Slam quarterfinal, Brazil’s Beatriz Haddad Maia came back from a set down to upset Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur 3-6 7-6(5) 6-1 at Roland Garros.

haddad maia

After recording the longest WTA match of the year in the fourth round to defeat Sara Sorribes Tormo in three hours and 51 minutes, the world No.14 Haddad stunned favorite Jabeur for the first time in their three career meetings.

The seventh-seeded Jabeur opened the quarterfinal match with a commanding 4-1 lead. Despite Haddad Maia’s efforts to regain ground with a break, it was ultimately Jabeur who maintained the upper hand throughout the first set.

The second set went with serve until the tiebreak. Interestingly, Jabeur had four love holds until 5-5. Despite having two significant break point opportunities at that crucial point, the Tunisian missed them, leading to a sudden shift in momentum.

After taking the tiebreak 7-5, Haddad Maia raced through the third set. Her exceptional performance resulted in a historic achievement, as she eliminated the first African player in the Open Era to reach the quarterfinals at all four Grand Slam tournaments. The disbelief on her face after securing the win was a testament to the magnitude of her accomplishment.

Haddad Maia has become the first Brazilian woman to reach a Grand Slam semifinal since Maria Bueno (1968 US Open) and first Brazilian woman to reach the Roland Garros semifinals in the Open Era (Bueno reached semifinals here in 1966).

In the French Open semifinals, Haddad Maia will face world No.1 Iga Swiatek, who cruised past Coco Gauff later on Wednesday.
