Sofia Kenin Roland Garros 2020

Sofia Kenin set to drop out of Top 10 for first time since Slam triumph

Sofia Kenin will have her recent problems compounded as the former world number four continues to fall in the WTA rankings.

The 22-year-old first broke into the top-10 back in February 2020 immediately after winning the Australian Open.

Now, Kenin is set to drop out of the top-10 for the first time since. The American reached her second Slam final at the pandemic-delayed 2020 French Open, losing to Iga Swiatek in that match.

With ranking points from that event set to be dropped next week, Kenin will see her ranking points tally fall 1059 points from 4190 to 3131. As a result, she will tumble from world number eight down to 13th in the rankings.

Kenin has played sparingly in 2021, competing in just 21 matches across 10 tournaments. She has an 11-10 win-loss record on the season and recently withdrew from the upcoming WTA 1000 event at Indian Wells.

Kenin has reached the quarter-final stage just once this season, in her first tournament of the year, the Yarra Valley Classic in Melbourne, Australia.

With points from Roland Garros dropping from the rankings, 2020 champion Swiatek will also suffer. Currently sat at a career-high number four in the world, the Pole is set to drop back out of the top-10, down seven places to 11th.
