Aryna Sabalenka will be the new world number one after the US Open. Iga Swiatek started her campaign at the top of the WTA rankings. However, in order to keep her status, she had to outperform Aryna Sabalenka. Iga lost on Sunday to Jelena Ostapenko, losing the opportunity to defend her 2022 title, and therefore, Sabalenka will become the new world no. 1.
