Porsche Race to Singapore: Pliskova motors up to No.5

Porsche Tennis Grand Prix champion Karolina Pliskova moved up five slots in the April 30 weekly update of the Porsche Race to Singapore.


Newly-crowned Stuttgart champion - and Porsche owner - Karolina Pliskova zoomed up five spots into the Top 8 in the Porsche Race to Singapore on Monday, by virtue of her triumph at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix to open the clay season.

Pliskova claimed her first title of the year in Stuttgart, and moves up to No.5 in the Race, displacing Petra Kvitova, Naomi Osaka, Elise Mertens, Garbiñe Muguruza and Daria Kasatkina each down one spot in the Top 10.

Stuttgart semifinalist Caroline Garcia, who was defeated by Vandeweghe in the final four, is the other major mover in the Race Top 20 this week, moving up four spots to No.14.

The biggest movers of the week come lower in the standings as the other Stuttgart semifinalist, Estonia's Anett Kontaveit, moves up 25 places to No.32, after defeating Kristina Mladenovic, Angelique Kerber and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova on the German clay before falling to eventual champion Pliskova.

Vandeweghe builds on her breakout week on the terre battue with a rise of 150 spots to No.60, while Istanbul Cup champion Pauline Parmentier - who was open about having weighed the decision to retire from the sport this year - moves up 110 spots to No.56 after her first WTA title in 10 years.
