Roland Garros 2020 results are reflected through the latest fluctuations in the tennis chart earlier this week.
Thanks to the unexpected women’s singles champion Roland Garros 2020, 19-year-old Polish talent Iga Swiatek broke into the World Top 20 for the first time in his career, surpassing 37 places from 54 to 17th of the WTA.
Iga Swiatek broke into the Top 20 WTA
Before that, Iga had become the lowest-ranked women’s singles champion Roland Garros since the 1975 WTA computer ranking. Winning Sofia Kenin 6-4, 6-1 was also Swiatek’s first title at the top four levels of international tournaments and made her the first Polish women’s singles Grand Slam champion.
Sofia Kenin promoted to 4th place in WTA
Meanwhile, her achievement in reaching the final of the first clay-court tournament in her career helped Kenin jump 2 places to 4th, the highest position that the 21-year-old American girl has ever reached.
The WTA top 3 remained the same as before the French Open. Ashleigh Barty No. 1, Simona Halep No. 2, and Naomi Osaka No. 3. Serena Williams No. 10.
Novak Djokovic is still No. 1 ATP
At ATP’s latest tennis chart, Novak Djokovic is still No. 1, despite losing No. 2 Rafael Nadal 6-0, 6-2, 7-5 when the Spanish player sets a record 13 times Roland Garros and catches the record 20 Roger Federer’s Grand Slam men’s singles championship.
2020 US Open champion Dominic Thiem still takes third place, followed by Federer. Coming to the first Grand Slam quarter-finals before losing to Nadal, Diego Schwartzman entered the Top 10 for the first time, from 14th to 8th, specifically.
Coco Gauff reached a new milestone in her career
The latest tennis chart sees a breakthrough for the student Coco Gauff, while Ashleigh Barty is still playing, still No. 1 in the world. Coco Gauff is not only the youngest tennis player in the Top 100 of the WTA but also just broke through to the highest ranking in her career.
On the latest women’s tennis chart, Gauff has just gone from 55 to 47, surpassing her previous best milestone of 49th in February 2020. The reason is that in Ostrava, Gauff passed the qualifiers to advance to round 2, where she stopped in front of seed number 12 Aryna Sabalenka, 1-6, 7-5, 7-6 (2).
At 16, Gauff was even the youngest in the WTA Top 400. The top 3 US players are Sofia Kenin 4th, Serena Williams 10th, and Madison Keys 16th.
