SERENA WILLIAMS CLIMBS BACK TO TOP 10 IN WTA RANKINGS

Serena Williams has made her way back to the Top 10 in the WTA rankings for the first time since the birth of her daughter in September 2017.

According to Reuters reports, Williams is No. 10 in the latest rankings released Monday.

Her full name is Serena Jameka Williams; her sister Venus is just 15 months older. She has two half-sisters – Lyndrea and Isha Price. A third, Yetunde, passed away in 2003

Japan’s Naomi Osaka remained No. 1. Simona Halep of Romania and Sloane Stephens each moved up a spot to Nos. 2 and 3, respectively.

Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam champion, is next scheduled to play in the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, Calif., in March – the same tournament that marked her return to the tour last spring.

The 37-year-old has not played since the Australian Open last month, which she exited in the quarterfinals.

Williams first appeared in the Top 10 on April 5, 1999. This is her 793rd career week in the Top 10.
