Mertens retakes No. 1 WTA doubles ranking, Pegula enters singles top 10

St Petesburg, Fl, USA - Elise Mertens has retaken the No.1 WTA doubles ranking after her third round at Roland Garros. The Belgian reached the top of the doubles rankings for the first time in May 2021, becoming the 45th woman in WTA history to reach the No. 1 position and the second Belgian after Kim Clijsters in 2003.

Mertens has enjoyed a stellar season in 2022, winning the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships title and reaching two more finals, at the Qatar Total Energies Open and the Miami Open presented by Itau, all alongside partner Veronica Kudermetova. Mertens overtakes Katerina Siniakova as No. 1, ending the Czech's 28-week streak at the top.

Another milestone in today's rankings is American Jessica Pegula who made her debut in the top 10 in singles.

Pegula, now ranked No. 8, reached her third career Grand Slam quarter-final last week in Paris, while earlier this season she finished runner-up at the Mutua Madrid Open and reached the semi-finals in Miami.

Pegula is the second player to reach the top-10 for the first time this season, following in the footsteps of compatriot Danielle Collins who achieved it in January.

Estonia's Anett Kontaveit moved up to No. 2 in the world this week and Tunisia's Ons Jabeur moved to No. 4, representing career highs for both players. Coco Gauff of the U.S. also achieved a new career-best ranking of No. 13 after reaching the Roland Garros final.
