Now that the Western & Southern Open is done, five players made rankings moves on Monday.


Madison Keys

+8 — Up to No. 10 from No. 18

Madison Keys finished off an incredible week in Cincinnati by taking home the Western & Southern Open title, her second of 2019, pushing her back into the Top 10 for the first time in over a year. She is now only three places shy of her career best ranking of world No. 7. Along the way, she defeated Garbine Muguruza, Simona Halep, Venus Williams and Svetlana Kuzenetsova.


Venus Williams

+13 — Up to No. 52 from No. 65

Venus Williams continues to show that age is simply a number by enjoying a stellar week in Cincinnati, securing wins over No. 5 seed Kiki Berterns and Donna Vekic before losing to Keys in the quarterfinals. She still showed that she can hang with the best of them in big tournaments.


Maria Sharapova

+10 — Up to No. 87 from No. 97

A name that hasn't been the talk of the town this season, Maria Sharapova finally made a significant rankings jump after beating Alison Riske to reach the second round in Cincinnati. Unfortunately, she was quickly beaten by Ashleigh Barty, yet her rankings reached a nice boost for the previous win. Hopefully the Russian will only continue to improve.


Richard Gasquet

+22 — Up to No. 34 from No. 56

Richard Gasquet soared through the rankings this week, having reached his first ATP Masters 1000 semifinal in over six years while in Cincinnati. His last appearance came in the Miami Open in 2013, and this year he fell to David Goffin in straight sets. Still, his stellar performance gave him enough of a boost to push him almost back into the Top 50.


Daniil Medvedev

+3 — Up to No. 5 from No. 8

Daniil Medvedev continues to impress this season. By securing a spot in his third final is as many weeks, the 23-year-old earned his first ATP Masters title by winning the Western & Southern Open. He dropped only one set on his way to the title, defeating top-tier players such as Novak Djokovic along the way. Medvedev now jumps to a career-high ranking of world No. 5.
