Scheepers moves up WTA rankings
- Updated: April 29, 2013
A successful run at the GP de SAR tournament in Marrakech, Morroco saw our top-ranked singles player climb the WTA tennis rankings on Monday, writes Mark Etheridge.
Chani Scheepers started the clay-court tournament ranked 70th but a win against 26th ranked Sorana Cristea of Romania in the second round and another against France’s Kristina Mladenovic did her rankings history the world of good.
Monday’s latest rankings see the 29-year-old Harrismith born player climb nine spots to 61st spot.
Meanwhile, our second-ranked singles player, Chanel Simmonds, also moved nine places but in the opposite direction and she slots in at 181, down from 172nd spot.
The men’s rankings saw our No1 singles player, Kevin Anderson slip one spot to 28th spot on the ATP listing.
