While Aryna Sabalenka replaced Iga Swiatek as the new World No.1, newly-crowned US Open champion Coco Gauff reached a new-career high in the latest WTA Rankings released on Monday.
Swiatek, who was the defending champion at Flushing Meadows, bowed out after a fourth-round loss to Jelena Ostapenko. Sabalenka, on the other hand, bettered her result from last year to reach the final before losing to Gauff in the final. The Belarusian is the 29th different woman to claim the top spot since the introduction of the computerised WTA Rankings.
The 19-year-old Gauff, who clinched her maiden Major title and became the youngest American champion at US Open since Serena Williams in 1999, moved up three spots to third.
