As is often the case, a large tournament causes weight changes in the world rankings. In this case, the WTA 1000 of Indian Wells, which had a champion Paula Badosa, showed precisely the Spanish as the new Top 15, since it was located N ° 13 in the weekly list. And the loss of the Roland Garros 2020 points caused a great setback for Argentina’s Nadia Podoroska, with the Colombian María Camila Osorio now being the Latin American leader.
The 23-year-old Badosa settled in the Top 15 for the first time in his career, just in his best season. The owner of Indian Wells advanced 14 places in the classification and placed N ° 13, being the second best Spanish and asking for a clue towards the coveted Top 10.
Another important modification occurred with the advancement of six sites by Ons Jabeur, another tennis player with a great present. She became the first Tunisian Top 10, placing N ° 8 in the ranking.
The list continues to be led by the Australian Ashleigh Barty, with a wide advantage over the Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka.
Meanwhile, several players advanced in that elite lot, as the Polish Iga Swiatek, who gave up last year’s Roland Garros title points by calendar, fell seven places to go from No. 4 to No. 11 in the world.
Belarusian Victoria Azarenka, with a past world No. 1, was a finalist in Indian Wells and thus improved six places to be No. 26 in the rankings.
Among the Latin American women a change in weight was caused. Podoroska ceased to be No. 1 in the region, as it lost the units of the semifinals of Roland Garros 2020 and dropped 46 places on the world list, being now No. 82. Meanwhile, Osorio rose eight places and is the best in Latin America, now at No. 63.
