Sofia Kenin will drop out of the top 10 for the first time since the slam triumph
Sofia Kenin is set to make her recent troubles worse as the former world number four continues to drop in the WTA rankings.
The 22-year-old made it into the top 10 for the first time in February 2020 after winning the Australian Open.
Now, for the first time since then, Kenin will drop out of the top 10. The American reached her second slam final at the French Open 2020, which was delayed by the pandemic, and lost in that game to Iga Swiatek.
With the leaderboard points from this event being dropped next week, Kenin will drop her leaderboard by 1059 points from 4190 to 3131. As a result, she will drop from eighth in the world to 13th in the ranking.
Kenin played sparingly in 2021, playing only 21 games in 10 tournaments. She has an 11-10 win-loss record for the season and recently retired from the upcoming WTA 1000 event at Indian Wells.
Kenin has only reached the quarter-finals once this season at their first tournament of the year, the Yarra Valley Classic in Melbourne, Australia.
With points from Roland Garros falling off the rankings, the 2020 champion Swiatek will suffer too. The Pole is currently in fourth place in terms of career height and is expected to drop out of the top 10 and drop seven places to eleventh place.
