Barty set to lose world number one ranking
Queenslander Ash Barty’s reign as world number one is set to come to an abrupt end on Monday.
After losing in the fourth round of Wimbledon last month, Barty lost 6-7 (5-7), 6-3, 6-4 to American Sofia Kenin in the Rogers Cup.
The shock result means she’ll relinquish her spot as the world’s best female player to either Naomi Osaka or Karolina Pliskova.
