Kiki Bertens has dropped from seventh to eighth place in the world rankings. The Dutch tennis star, like many of her competitors, did not participate in the US Open in the past two weeks. Bertens considered the risks too great due to the situation surrounding the corona virus in the United States. She was preparing for Roland Garros, her favorite grand slam tournament, which starts in a week.
Japanese Naomi Osaka, who won the US Open, rose from ninth to third place. The Australian Ashleigh Barty tops the list, ahead of the Romanian Simona Halep.
The men’s final did not end until late on Sunday evening. The Austrian Dominic Thiem beat the German Alexander Zverev. The top nine is still unchanged. Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta, who reached the semifinals in New York, has moved up from 27th to 18th position.
Tallon Griekspoor is the best Dutchman in 138th place, followed by Botic van de Zandschulp (164th) and Robin Haase (171st).
