Maria Sakkari the only climber in the WTA top 20 | Tennis News

PARIS: Maria Sakkari was the only climber in the top 20 of the WTA rankings published on Monday, climbing one place to No. 6 and swapping places with Spaniard Paula Badosa.
No. 1 Ashleigh Barty maintained a huge lead over Czech Barbora Krejcikova.
Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka remains third but is one of five women in the top 30 who have been left stateless after the WTA ruled her country’s players and Russia cannot compete under their national flags due to the invasion Russian from Ukraine.
Belarus is an ally of Russia and hosted troops used in the invasion.
Top-ranked Ukrainian Elina Svitolina fell three places to 18th, but Dayana Yastremska jumped 37 places to 103 after her emotional run to Sunday’s final in Lyon.
