What are the WTA rankings after Coco Gauff’s victory at the 2023 US Open?

At just 19 years old, Coco Gauff has become the first American to break into the WTA Top 3 since Venus Williams accomplished the feat at the same young age.

The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) rankings employ a cumulative system that considers a player’s performance over 52 weeks. The ranking of a tennis player is determined based on their results in up to 16 singles tournaments and 11 doubles tournaments. Points are allocated according to the player’s progress in each tournament, with more points being awarded for advancing further. This methodology ensures that the rankings accurately reflect a player’s overall performance over time, providing a reliable measure of their skills and abilities in the sport.

Coco Gauff has arisen as the highest-ranked American player on the WTA Tour following her impressive victory over Aryna Sabalenka at the US Open. Gauff arrived in New York with an unbeaten streak, which she has maintained with this latest win. Sabalenka provided stiff competition for a set but ultimately joined the players who failed to overcome Gauff.

This victory represents a significant milestone for Gauff, as it establishes her as a Grand Slam champion and demonstrates her status as one of the best players in the world.

WTA Rankings

Coco Gauff’s recent victory at the US Open has significantly increased her WTA ranking points, elevating her to her highest-ever ranking. Consequently, she will now be the highest-ranked American player, overtaking Jessica Pegula, her doubles partner, who had held the position throughout the year.

Conversely, Iga Swiatek will experience a decline in her ranking to number two with 8195 points, while Coco Gauff will now be at number three with 6165 points. This development places her almost 400 points ahead of Elena Rybakina and Jessica Pegula, who are currently in close proximity. Retaining her ranking for the remainder of the year may pose a challenge; however, given her exceptional talent and unwavering determination, she is undoubtedly capable of doing so.
