Rybarikova’s Ranking Soars After Wimbledon

Rybarikova's return of a ball at Wimbledon

WEEK: 07.17.2017

Magdalena Rybarikova rockets up the rankings with her impressive semifinal run at Wimbledon; she is now two places shy of her career high of thirty-one, which was achieved in 2013.  Injuries have interrupted Rybarikova’s career.  Her last tournament in 2016 was Wimbledon and she just returned to the Tour in February after having knee and wrist surgeries last year. Many players battle injury and most have been fortunate enough to recover fully, but a few have not.  Rybarikova may have lost badly in the semifinal to the eventual champion; however, she will be ecstatic that she is once again able to compete at this level.
