Ashleigh Barty rises to the top of the Porsche Race to Shenzhen Leaderboard after lifting her maiden Grand Slam singles title at Roland Garros. The Australian now owns two singles titles this season following her career first WTA Premier Mandatory crown at the Miami Open in March, surpassing Petra Kvitova for the No.1 spot on the Leaderboard.
Roland Garros finalist Marketa Vondrousova jumps nine positions to land within the Top 8 on the Leaderboard at No.7.
Johanna Konta climbs to No.9 following a semifinal run in Paris, while Amanda Anisimova soars 16 spots to No.13 after becoming the first player – male or female – born in the 2000s to reach a Grand Slam semifinal.
Kristina Mladenovic, the newly crowned WTA World No.1 doubles player, and Timea Babos claimed their second Grand Slam doubles title as a team in Paris, rising six spots to take over the No.1 position on the doubles Leaderboard.
Roland Garros represents lap number 27 out of 57 total (a reference to qualifying tournaments leading into the WTA Finals). The Top 8 singles players and doubles teams of 2019 will secure their spot at the WTA Finals in Shenzhen, China, taking place from October 27 – November 3, 2019.
The singles player who finishes the regular season in pole position on the Porsche Race to Shenzhen Leaderboard will be congratulated with a new Porsche.
