She began the season 15th world, and few punters would have bet last January on the fact that it ends in 2019, on the throne of the WTA. And yet, it is with almost 2000 points ahead of time that Ashleigh Barty dominates the latest ranking of the season ! After an outstanding year that has seen impose to Miami, Roland Garros, Birmingham and at the Masters (on four different surfaces !) and played in the final in Sydney and Beijing, the Australian, who became n°1 on June 24, and had then shared the throne with Naomi Osaka, ends with 1911 points ahead of Karolina Pliskova. Assured of complete n°1 in the beginning of the week, Barty has made a point of honor to win the Masters to finish the year in style (until a triumph in the Fed Cup next Sunday ?).
Svitolina finished 6th
Finalist in Shenzhen while she was holder of the title, Elina Svitolina concludes the year 2019 (where it has not won any tournament) at the sixth place in the world, at the expense of Petra Kvitova and Belinda Bencic, who lose a place. Compared to the ranking of last week, Simona Halep double Bianca Andreescu and Kiki Bertens double Serena Williams. On the French side, no changes to report. The four Blue ones on the Top 100 are ranked between the 40th and the 63eme place in the world. Four of the best Australian are classified between the 1st and the 108eme place… well, that promises a final tight!!
40- Kristina Mladenovic (FRA) 1 360 points (-1)
45- Caroline Garcia (FRA) 1 235 points
60- Alizé Cornet (FRA) 1 015 points
63- Fiona Ferro (FRA) 926 points
