America Open title win has lifted Naomi Osaka back into the top 3 in the newest WTA Rankings on Monday. The 22-year-old won the USA Open title on Sunday after securing a win over Victoria Azarenka in the last. She climbed six spots to take a seat on the third position. Osaka had registered a 1-6, 6-3, 6-3 win in the decider over Azarenka. The 2018 champion had overcome an inspired assault from Azarenka in the opening set to win her third career Grand Slam crown after one hour and 53 minutes on Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Each and every time Osaka has progressed beyond the fourth round of a major, she has ended up winning the title. Her three Grand Slam trophies now tie her with Angelique Kerber for the fourth-highest complete among active players, in the back of only Serena Williams, Venus Williams, and Kim Clijsters.

Meantime, Azarenka made a hop of 13 places to claim the 14th position. Jennifer Brady also improved her ranking and now sits on the 25th position, with a hop of 16 positions.
