The No. 1 next to Iga Swiatek's name on the WTA rankings hasn’t changed, but the gap between her and the rest of the field certainly has.

The top-ranked Pole has more than doubled her lead over the rest of the field this week—going into Roland Garros she had a 2,150-point lead over then-No. 2 Barbora Krejcikova, 7,061 to 4,911, but after capturing her second Grand Slam title on the terre battue, she now has a 4,305-point lead over new No. 2 Anett Kontaveit, 8,631 to 4,326.

Multiply 2,150 by two and add 5 points, and you’ve got 4,305.

Her 8,631 ranking points are also 60 points more than No. 2 Kontaveit’s 4,326 and No. 3 Paula Badosa’s 4,245 combined (8,571).

There’s a lot of movement among the rest of the Top 10 on the WTA rankings, too, including the aforementioned Kontaveit setting a new career-high by rising from No. 5 to No. 2 and Ons Jabeur moving from No. 6 to No. 4 for her Top 5 debut.

There’s also a Top 10 debut, with Jessica Pegula—who’s fresh off her first Roland Garros quarterfinal—rising from No. 11 to No. 8.

Pegula is actually the new American No. 1, just edging out No. 9-ranked Danielle Collins. She’s the 32nd American woman to reach the Top 10 in WTA rankings history.

“It’s just an amazing achievement,” Pegula said when told of the ranking projection during Roland Garros. “It’s not that I didn’t think I would get there, it’s just when it happens, like, you can’t believe it. And it’s a pretty cool thing, I think, with tennis where you can say you’re a Top 10 best player in the world.

“That’s pretty, pretty awesome.”

Another American woman on the verge of the Top 10 is Coco Gauff, who surges from No. 23 to a new high of No. 13 after becoming the youngest woman to reach a major final since Maria Sharapova at Wimbledon in 2004—and the youngest American woman to reach a major final since Serena Williams at the 1999 US Open.

Elsewhere, Canadian teenager Leylah Fernandez makes her Top 15 debut after reaching her first Roland Garros quarterfinal, rising from No. 18 to No. 15, and Italy’s Martina Trevisan makes her simultaneous Top 50, Top 40 and Top 30 debuts after reaching her first major semifinal in Paris, rising from No. 59 to No. 27.

When Swiatek first rose to No. 1 on April 4th, she had a 1,736-point lead over No. 2—that lead has now grown to 4,305 points.

There are some notable moves over on the ATP rankings as well, with Rafael Nadal inching up from No. 5 to No.4 after capturing his record-extending 14th career Roland Garros title, and Casper Ruud also inching up from No. 7 to a new career-high of No. 6 after reaching his first major final, where he finished runner-up to Nadal.

A few of the other players who made noise in Paris rise up this week, with Marin Cilic going from No. 23 to No. 17 after reaching his first Roland Garros semifinal—his first time in the Top 20 since August 2019, and Holger Rune jumping from No. 40 to No. 28 after becoming the first Danish man in the Open Era to reach a major quarterfinal.

Rune’s rise this year has been incredible—he only just made his Top 100 debut in January and in five months is already up to No. 28, his biggest jump coming after winning his first ATP title in Munich last month, when he rose from No. 70 to No. 45.

Rune and Carlos Alcaraz are the only two teenagers in the Top 170 of the ATP rankings—and they only just turned 19 a matter of weeks ago.
