Miami (USA) – Although they fell in the debut of the WTA 1000 in Miami, São Paulo’s Luisa Stefani and Dutch partner Demi Schuurs rose in the doubles ranking this Monday, both gaining three places. While Schuurs secured a return to the top 10, reaching 10th place, Stefani was one position below and is currently 11th in the world.

Achieving a place in the top 10 is especially important this year, at least until the rankings released after Roland Garros, which will define the classification for the Paris Olympic Games. All tennis players in the top 10 guarantee a place in the competition, which could help Brazil have up to two doubles in the Olympic event.

Bronze medalist in Tokyo, Luisa could thus compete in the Games alongside Laura Pigossi from São Paulo, opening a second place for the duo of Beatriz Haddad Maia from São Paulo and Ingrid Martins from Rio. Both are well placed, Bia is currently 22nd in the world in doubles, while Ingrid is 52nd, a better position than in the last ranking.

Luisa, Bia and Ingrid are the three national representatives in the top 100, as the fourth best in the country, Pigossi, appears only in 213th position, after making a good leap this Monday, gaining 56 places. Also from São Paulo, Ana Candiotto debuted in the top 300 doubles by gaining 10 positions and reaching 299th place.

In the season’s race, Stefani and Schuurs are in sixth place, losing their place in the top 5 to Gabriela Dabrowski and Erin Routliffe, who were runners-up in Miami and are now in fifth place. Bia and North American Taylor Townsend dropped two places, but remain in the top 10 and are the tenth best couple of the year.
