Teenager Gauff rockets into Top 100 after maiden win
Paris - American prodigy Coco Gauff continued her rise up the ranks of women's tennis on Monday when the WTA Tour rankings showed a climb of 39 places to 71st in the world.
Gauff started last week in Linz at 110th and was originally set for an early departure from Austria after losing in the qualifying rounds before grabbing a lifeline as a lucky loser.
She went on to beat 2017 Roland Garros winner Jelena Ostapenko in the final for her maiden title.
It marks a meteoric rise for the young American - at the end of 2018, she was 686th in the world.
Another good performance in Luxembourg this week could see her knocking on the door of the top 50.
There was no movement in the top 20 with Ashleigh Barty retaining the No 1 spot for another week.
