Madrid champion Jabeur rises to seventh in rankings

Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur matched her personal-best seventh in the WTA rankings on Monday after winning the biggest title of her career at last week’s Madrid Open.

The 27-year-old, the first Arab or African player to break into the men’s or women’s top 10, beat American Jessica Pegula 7-5, 0-6, 6-2 in Saturday’s final.

Pegula has moved up three places to a career-high of 11th in the world.

Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka slipped four spots to eighth.

The only place in the top 15 not to change hands was the world-number-one spot, with Iga Swiatek still holding a commanding lead at the top of the rankings despite missing Madrid due to injury.
