With multiple tournaments finishing this past weekend, many players jumped in the rankings and some even made history. 


Coco Gauff

+39 — No. 110 to No. 71

The 15-year-old's victory at the Upper Austria Ladies Linz International sent her into the Top 75 for the first time. The lucky loser enjoyed an obviously memorable week, defeating Jelena Ostapenko in the final, to become the youngest WTA title winner since 2004.


Rebecca Peterson

+15 — No. 59 to No. 44

Winning the Tianjin Open by defeating Heather Watson in straight sets has given Peterson a strong boost in her ranking. The Swede, also having recently won in Nanchang, has reached her highest ranking ever. 


Heather Watson

+37 — No. 125 to No. 88

With only a few main-draw WTA wins under her belt for this season, it was great seeing Watson back in the final of a tournament, where she lost to Peterson in the Tianjin Open final. Despite losing, she still is back in the Top 100, marking her highest ranking since June 2018.


Jelena Ostapenko

+9 — No. 72 to No. 63

With Gauff stealing much of the spotlight this week, it may seem like Ostapenko was left out in the cold. However, the 2017 French Open champion enjoyed her best singles week of the season, reaching the final in Linz. Although she found Gauff too strong over three sets, Ostapenko is still back up to world No. 63.


Alexander Bublik

+6 — No. 54 to No. 48

He may not have had the best of times in Shanghai, where he qualified and retired from his first-round match, but the 22-year-old is into the Top 50 for the first time. The jump is more than justified after he reached his second final of 2019 in Chengdu three weeks ago.
