Miami (USA) – WTA 1000 Miami champion, the biggest title of her career, North American Danielle Collins made a big leap in the rankings released this Monday. The 30-year-old tennis player, who will retire at the end of the season, has gained 31 places on the WTA list and is now the current world number 22.

A finalist at the Australian Open in 2022, Collins reached the top 10 that year, reaching seventh place in July 2022, his best record so far. Interestingly, after winning in Florida, she rose to seventh place in the season’s race, and can dream of reaching her best ranking in 2024.

Poland’s Iga Swiatek remains firmly in the lead, almost 3,000 points ahead of Belarus’s Aryna Sabalenka. Completing the WTA top 5, which remained unchanged, are North American Coco Gauff (3rd), Kazakh Elena Rybakina (4th) and North American Jessica Pegula (5th).

This Monday’s ranking had just one change in the entire top 10, with the rise of Greek Maria Sakkari, who gained two positions and is now number 7 in the world, surpassing China’s Qinwen Zheng (8th) and Czech Marketa Vondrousova (9th). Closing the list of the 10 best in the world are Tunisian Ons Jabeur (6th) and Latvian Jelena Ostapenko (10th).

Last year’s champion, Czech Petra Kvitova fell in this week’s ranking, losing 37 places for not defending her title. Two-time Wimbledon champion in 2011 and 2014, the left-hander from Bilovec took a break from her career in 2024 to become a mother for the first time.

Collins is thrilled with dream come true and title at home
