London – Barbora Krejčíková is again number two in the world tennis rankings, despite a health break. As of today, 20-year-old Polka Iga Šwiateková is officially in charge of her. After him, the Serb Novak Djokovic remained on the throne among the men.
Krejčíková is healing her injured elbow, but her defense of trophies in singles and doubles at the Roland Garros grand slam from mid-May should not be jeopardized by the current problems. The Greek Maria Sakkari helped the native of Brno to the second place in the ranking, as she did not defend her semi-final participation in Miami.
Karolína Plíšková is seventh in the ranking, there are four other Czech women in the top 50, and only 16-year-old Linda Fruhvirtová has made a big leap. She reached the round of 16 in Florida, improved by 91 places in the WTA standings and is at the end of the second 200th (188th). Another Czech hope, Linda Nosková, is rising, the 17-year-old player has moved up 38 places (184th) after winning the ITF tournament in France. In the doubles rank, Krejčíková is also number two behind her partner Kateřina Siniaková.
Djokovic did not start in Miami and stayed with his family due to coronavirus restrictions. Russian tennis player Daniil Medvedev could have deposed him, but he did not win the necessary semifinals. In addition, he opted for hernia surgery and will be absent from the circuit for up to two months.
Just behind the top ten is the unexpected Miami champion Carlos Alcaraz. The 18-year-old Spaniard has jumped five places and is 11th. The Czech number one Jiří Veselý improved by eight places to 69th place after the semifinals at the challenger in Marbella, Jiří Lehečka remained ninety-eight.
