After a week of International action, the Porsche Race to Shenzhen is gearing up to make major changes after this week at the Premier-level Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic (San Jose) and International-level Washington DC.
Last week, Anastasija Sevastova lifted the trophy in her home tournament, the Baltic Open in Jurmala - but she didn’t gain any points on her ranking. Instead, she broke even as she was the defending champion at last year’s Bucharest Open, which moved to Jurmala in 2019.
Palermo Open champion Jil Teichmann was the week’s biggest winner on the Porsche Race to Shenzhen, jumping up 28 spots to No.54 after her stunning win over Kiki Bertens in the final.
Meanwhile, the rest of the PRTS Top 8 remained unchanged after last week, with only minor shuffles happening in the No.9-20 spots.
Ashleigh Barty, the French Open champion, continues to lead the way ahead of Simona Halep, who stunned Serena Williams to win Wimbledon. Naomi Osaka, who is 2019’s other major champion having won the Australian Open, is at No.6.
