Wimbledon 2018: Timi will be the new World No1 in doubles

09/07/2018 – Andrea Sestini Hlaváčková said goodbye, so nobody can overtake the Hungarian player.

 

It’s decided: fron next Monday, Timi will be the new doubles leader of the WTA Rankings. She is the first adult World No1 of the Hungarian tennis.

Before the Wimbledon Grand Slam tournament, Timi was ranked 3rd, it was also a career and a Hungarian record. Before the start, Elena Vesnina, the last year’s winner, pulled out due to an injury, it means, she can not remain in the best position. Then her 2017 partner, Ekaterina Makarova and former World No1, now 4th Latisha Chan lost in the second round. Thus, only the Hungarian player’s last year’s partner, Andrea Sestini Hlaváčková had the chance to overtake Timi.

 

On Monday, the Czech star lost in the third round with Barbora Strýcová, so it is sure, next Monday the 25-year old Hungarian player will be the new World No1.

 

HISTORY WAS MADE, AGAIN A HISTORICAL SUCCESS FOR TIMI.
