Iga Swiatek remains large and in charge on the WTA Tour after claiming her 12th WTA in Doha. Swiatek’s ranking didn’t change this week (and likely won’t for a while), but there was some movement inside the top 20 this week.

Scroll down to find out who the movers and shakers are…

Iga Swiatek – 46 weeks at No 1 and counting

Swiatek leads No 2 Aryna Sabalenka by 4,800 points as she begins her 46th week at No 1.

Both will be in action next week at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, as will nine of the current top 10.

The Pole ranks 13th on the all-time list for WTA weeks at No 1 and – if you’re scoring at home – is five weeks from catching Victoria Azarenka at No 12 on the list.

Pegula back to No 3

On the strength of reaching the final in Doha, where she lost to Swiatek 6-3, 6-0, Jessica Pegula pushes past Ons Jabeur and up to No 3 in the rankings, dropping the Tunisian to No 4.

Samsonova hits No 13 – a career-high

A pair of Russians hit career-high rankings inside the top 20 as Liudmila Samsonova rises to a career-high No 13, while Ekaterina Alexandrova jumps to a career-best 16.

Dane Tauson jumps 15

Former world No 33 Clara Tauson is rising up the rankings once again. She won the 60K title in Altenkirchen, defeating Greet Minnen in the final – the 20-year-old rises back to No 113 this week.
