Coco Gauff’s triumph at the Upper Austria Ladies Linz has pushed her into the Top 75 for the first time.
The 15-year-old lucky loser enjoyed a memorable week, in which she defeated her first WTA Top 10 player in the form of Kiki Bertens, before going on to seal her maiden Tour trophy to overcoming 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko, 6-3, 1-6, 6-2.
As a result of her historic triumph – she became the youngest winner on Tour since Nicole Vaidisova won in Tashkent in 2004 – she has leapt up an astonishing 39 spots on the Rankings to become the new WTA World No.71.
Elsewhere, Rebecca Peterson was the winner of the Tianjin Open, defeating Heather Watson in straight sets in the final, and has consequently received a healthy boost in her ranking.
The Swede, who also recently won in Nanchang, is riding on a crest of a wave and is currently in her highest ever position of WTA World No.44, having climbed to that height from WTA World No.59.
Ons Jabeur (+8, No.61 to No.53): Came within a set of reaching a second WTA Tour final in Tianjin but was ultimately bested by Peterson in a tight encounter. Jumps eight spots up the Rankings.
Jelena Ostapenko (+9, No.72 to No.63): Enjoyed her best singles week of 2019 to reach the final of Linz but found Gauff too strong over three sets. Back up to WTA World No.63.
Heather Watson (+37, No.125 to No.88): Only had a couple of WTA Tour main draw wins to her credit before storming to the final of Tianjin. At her highest ranking since June 2018.
