Schiavone Back In The Top 100.

WEEK:  02.22.2016

Francesca Schiavone won the Rio Open title on Sunday; her first singles title since 2013 and is back in the top 100 after falling out at the end of last season.  She had 15 consecutive seasons in the top 100 and has been ranked as high as number 7. A combination of injury and the effects of playing against players that are hitting the ball flatter and harder saw Schiavone struggling just to make it out of qualifying rounds and first rounds of main draws.  It does not get any easier with age; however, Schiavone proved once again that she can still outplay her opponents on clay.

Roberta Vinci has cracked the top 10 on the WTA Tour for the first time in her career.  Lucie Safarova dropped out of the top ten.  There were some switching of positions of four members; however, the top two players remained the same.

The top 10 members on the ATP Tour remained the same with a little shuffling of position amongst the 6th, 7th and 8th ranked players.
