Garbiñe Muguruza Set to Become WTA World No.1

 

- The Spaniard will become the 24th woman in the history of the WTA to hold the World No.1 ranking

 

Garbiñe Muguruza is set to become the new WTA World No.1 for the first time in her career when the updated rankings are released on Monday, September 11. The Spaniard will become the second woman from her country to hold the top spot (after Arantxa Sánchez Vicario) and 24th overall in the history of the WTA.

 

The 23-year-old has enjoyed a successful 2017 season, lifting her second Grand Slam trophy at The Championships, Wimbledon and capturing her fifth-career title at the Western & Southern Open – Cincinnati. Muguruza currently holds a 19-3 win-loss record dating back to Wimbledon in July.

 

Muguruza will overtake the top spot from Karolina Pliskova, who has held the WTA World No.1 position for a total of eight weeks.
