Due to the Covid-19 pandemic which has upset and greatly reduced the WTA calendar this season, only the Ostrava tournament (Czech Republic) was on the calendar. Clear winner 6-2, 6-2 in the final on Sunday, Sabalenka (11th, +1) took the opportunity to overtake Switzerland’s Belinda Bencic (12th, -1) and stand at the gates of the top 10, just 35 points behind Serena Williams (10th).

Despite her lost final, Azarenka also nibbles a place (13th) by overtaking the Briton Johanna Konta. Only 50th in the world at the end of 2019, Azarenka, ex-world No. 1, lives a second youth this year, between his final at the US Open in September and his title won at the end of August at the Western & amp; New York Southern Open, his first in four and a half years. Note the strong progression of the American prodigy Cori Gauff, only 16 years old, who reached the best ranking of his career (47th, +8). Eighth-to-finalist in Ostrava, she almost eliminated Sabalenka (1-6, 7-5, 7-6 (7/2)).

No Frenchwoman was in contention in the Czech Republic, and the rankings of the four Tricolores members of the top 100 remain unchanged, Fiona Ferro (42nd) remaining the French No.1. No tournament is on the WTA calendar this week or next. The next event planned is the tournament in Linz (Austria), which is due to start on Monday 9 November.
