Today, Monday, the Association of Professional Tennis Players released the new world ranking, and Tunisian star Anas Jaber ranked second with 4,350 points, which is the best world ranking in her career.
Anas’ achievement is considered historic at the Arab and African levels, as she planned what South African Amanda Koetzer, who ranked third in 1997, had achieved.
The Tunisian star became the first Arab and African player to reach this “second place” rating since the adoption of the world ranking system in 1975.
This season, Anas won the Madrid Tournament title and runner-up to the Polish world number one Iga Švientek in Rome, both within the 1,000-point tournament, before lifting the Berlin Cup on grass courts a week ago, achieving the third title in her professional career, before the start of Wimbledon.
While Šviontik is still in the lead outside the flock, more than four thousand points from its closest rival after winning six titles so far this year, the progress of Anas and the decline of Estonian Annette Kontaveit, who became third, was the only change in the list of top 13.
Ranking of the top ten players:
1- Polish IGA Švientek – 8,576 points
2- Tunisian Anas Jaber – 4340
3- Estonian Annette Kontaveit – 4306
4- Spain’s Paula Padusa – 4245
5- Greek Maria Sakkari – 4205
6- Belarusian Arina Sabalenka – 4046
7- Czech Karolina Pliskova – 3777
8- American Daniel Collins – 3255
9- American Jessica Pegula – 3156
10- Spanish Garbine Mugurosa – 3015.
