Emma Raducanu’s world ranking has officially moved up to No. 23 following her US Open triumph on Saturday.
The qualifier beat Canadian Leylah Fernandez 6-4, 6-3 become the first British woman to win a singles Grand Slam in 44-years after Virginia Wade’s Wimbledon title in 1977.
The 18-year-old, who did not drop a single set, was ranked No. 150 before the tournament at Flushings Meadows but has now moved up by 127 places.
The US Open confirmed Raducanu was set to rise in the rankings after her win, with Fernandez also moving up from No. 66 to No. 28.
Raducanu was No. 338 in the world rankings before her run to the Wimbledon quarter-finals.
Her run at Wimbledon helped her qualify for the US Open, where she became the first qualifier in the Open era, of either sex, to reach and win a major singles final.
