The Aussie tennis champ, Ashleigh Barty, has extended her rankings lead at the top of the women’s game and has a real chance of finishing the year in top spot.
Barty, who achieved her best-ever finish at the grass-court grand slam by making the fourth round, has a lead of 348 points on Japan’s Naomi Osaka (6605 to 6257).
The top three of Barty, Naomi Osaka and Karolina Pliskova remains unchanged although none of them reached the quarter-finals. Simona Halep, who demolished Serena Williams in under an hour in Saturday’s final, moved up three places to number four. Williams moved up one place to nine.
