SIGNIFICANT RANKING CHANGES FOR PLAYERS IN THE TOP 100.
Ekaterina Alexandrova is our mover of the week; although two spots shy of her career high of sixty-nine, Alexandrova is doing well. The Russian just won the WTA 125K series title in Limoges and was a finalist in Linz last month. The young Russian is ending her 2018 season on a high and will definitely hope to bring this form into the 2019 season. She lost to Madison Keys in the second round of the Australian Open; she and her team will be hoping that she can go much further next year.
