New rise in the world rankings

Maria Sakkari is expected to climb to No. 7 in the WTA world rankings on Monday, winning two places.

Sakkari currently has 4055 points and will be behind the Ukrainian Elina Svitolina (4135) who will move up one place.

The rise of the 26-year-old Greek champion was helped by the exclusion of Tunisia’s Ons Zamber in the semifinal of the Indian Wells by the Spaniard Paula Pantosa, but also the retreats of Iga Sfiodek (will be 11th) and Sofia Kenin (13th), who lost seven and five respectively.

However, next Monday, Zamber will enter the Top10 of the world rankings and will become the first woman from an Arab country to succeed in the history of the WTA.

She will be at No. 9 (3545 points), presenting the biggest rise (5 places) to be among the top 10 athletes in the world. Naomo Osaka (No. 10) also returns to the top ten with an increase of two places (3326 points).

In the battle of the Finals, Sakkari is 6th among the eight that qualify.

The position of Stefanos Tsitsipas, as 3rd in the world, in the ATP ranking, with 7795 points, will remain unchanged. Rafa Nadal (5635 points) is expected to return to the top five (as 5th).
