There weren’t many changes to this week’s Road to Singapore Singles Leaderboard with many top players using the week after the US Open to gear up for the Asian swing of the season. There was no movement this week in the Leaderboard's Top 30 this week. Two International-level events wrapped up this week with the Coupe Baque Nationale in Quebec City, Canada and the Japan Women’s Open Tennis in Tokyo, Japan.
WTA Rising Star Annika Beck captured her second WTA singles title in Quebec City, upsetting Lucie Hradecka and defending champion Mirjana Lucic-Baroni along the way. The win boosted Beck from No.80 to No.54 in this week’s RTS Singles Leaderboard. Runner-up, fellow WTA Rising Star Jelena Ostapenko, also had a big jump, moving 26 positions to No.67.
In Tokyo, Yanina Wickmayer won her first WTA singles title since 2010 with a three-set win over WTA Rising Star Magda Linette, who you can vote for to play the WTA Rising Stars Invitational here. The win put the Belgian into the Top 50 of the Singles Leaderboard this week. Linette moved 25 spots to site at No.75 with her first WTA final under her belt.
The WTA moves to three countries this week, with the Premier-level Toray Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo, Japan and two International tournaments, the Guangzhou Women’s Open in Guangzhou, China and the Kore Open Tennis in Seoul, South Korea. RTS No.14 Caroline Wozniacki is the top seed in Tokyo, with WTA Finals qualifier Simona Halep leading the field in Guangzhou and Irina-Camelia Begu (RTS No.30) headlining Seoul.
The updated Road to Singapore Leaderboard for singles and doubles is released on Mondays on WTAFinals.com throughout the 2015 season.
