Ashleigh Barty extended her rankings lead at the top of the women’s game

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.
