Andreescu climbs to 6th

Bianca Andreescu rose three places to sixth in the WTA rankings yesterday, following her run to the final where she lost to Ashleigh Barty, who remains the world No. 1. Andreescu, a 20-year-old Canadian who was forced to retire in the second set at the Miami Open after turning her ankle, is approaching her best ranking since winning the 2019 US Open when she reached fourth. In spite of Barty’s victory, her nearest challenger Naomi Osaka closed the gap by 150 points although the Japanese remains more than 1,000 points behind. The best progression of the week came from the Greek Maria Sakkari who reached the semifinals in Florida after knocking out Osaka. The 25-year-old Athenian is up six places to 19th, her highest ranking yet.
