Danielle Collins insists she’s going to retire at some stage this year but the American is playing some of the best tennis of her life and her victory in Miami has sent her storming back up the rankings.

The 30-year-old climbs 31 places to No 22 after the biggest win of her career, taking out Elena Rybakina in the final to lift the Miami Open trophy. Unseeded in Miami, she’s now guaranteed to be seeded at the Grand Slams for the rest of the year, which should make life easier.

She’s still well short of her career-best ranking of No 7 but on this kind of form, and her general start to the year, anything’s possible.


Iga Swiatek remains well clear at the top and in fact she’s extended her lead over Aryna Sabalenka to 2,790 points. The Pole has 10,705 points to the Belarusian’s 8,195 heading into the clay-court season, where she is generally supreme.

Maria Sakkari is the only mover inside the top 10, the Greek up two places to seventh place as she continues to rediscover top form after a barren spell.

Caroline Garcia, who beat Naomi Osaka in Miami, is up three places to 23, while former No 1 Victoria Azarenka, a semi-finalist in Miami, is up six to 26 and Katie Boulter is up two to No 27, one short of her career-high.


1 Iga Swiatek: 10,835 points
2 Aryna Sabalenka: 8,045
3 Coco Gauff: 7,205
4 Elena Rybakina: 5,848
5 Jessica Pegula: 4,860
6 Ons Jabeur: 4,118
7 Maria Sakkari 4,030
8 Qinwen Zheng: 3,995
9 Marketa Vondrousova: 3,895
10 Jelena Ostapenko: 3,438

Oskaa back in the top 200

Naomi Osaka showed more signs of regaining some of the form that took her to the No 1 spot – and four Grand Slam titles – and the Japanese is back inside the top 200 for the first time since she returned to the Tour in January, following the birth of her first child.

Osaka skips inside the top 200 at No 192.
