Japan’s Naomi Osaka has fallen five places in the WTA rankings and is out of the top ten list for the first time since winning the US Open in 2018, while Tunisian Anas Jaber continued to climb the ranks by ascending to 14th place, the best in her professional career.
The Japanese former world number one has not participated in a tournament since her third-round elimination from Flushing Meadows last month, dropping to 12th, her lowest since before her first of four Grand Slam titles, at the US Open. Three years ago, she defeated Serena Williams.
Osaka withdrew from the French Open “Roland Garros”, and did not participate in Wimbledon this year, in order to preserve her mental health.
For her part, Spain’s Garbine Mugurosa, holder of two Grand Slam titles, jumped to sixth place, after winning the Chicago American Championships at the expense of Jaber, who continued to climb the ranks by rising to the fourteenth place, the highest rating in her professional career.
Among the men, there was no change in the top ten, despite the approach of the Norwegian Casper Ruud (10) to the Swiss Roger Federer (9), after winning the San Diego tournament, where the difference between them became only 150 points, and Serbian Novak Djokovic remained in front of the Russian Daniel Medvedev and the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas.
