Karman Kaur Thandi Becomes India’s Number One Singles Women Tennis Player | Tennis News

Karman Kaur Thandi in action

Karman Kaur Thandi is now India’s number 1 women’s singles tennis player, following her recent triumph at the W60 ITF event in Saguenay, Canada on Sunday. She has replaced Ankita Raina. This victory is the biggest singles title win of Karman’s career so far and it has pushed her 91 positions up in the latest Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) rankings to the 217th position, as per Olympics.com. Olympian Ankita is now placed at 297th position after slipping down 13 places.

Rutuja Bhosale, who is down nine spots to 411, Riya Bhatia, at world number 490 after slipping down five places and Sahaja Yamalapalli, up by 20 spots to world number 508, are the top five women’s singles players in India.

Karman accomplished her career-best 196 ranking in 2018. The win at Saguenay is Karman’s third singles title and second this year. She had won a W25 tournament back in June at Gurugram. Karman won her maiden singles title in Hong Kong in 2018.

In the final match against Canada’s Katherine Sebov, Karman Kaur bounced back from being a set down to win the title by 3-6, 6-4, 6-3.

Earlier in the tournament, Karman had caused an upset by defeating the second seed Robin Anderson (USA) in the first round and Japanese Ena Shibahara, one-half of the French Open 2022 mixed double champions in the second round.

Promoted

The year 2022 has been great for the Indian, who was ranked outside 400 back in February.

Last month, Karman had shocked France’s Chloe Paquet, then world number 109 in the opening round of the WTA Chennai Open 2022 and earned acclaim for her great performance against former Wimbledon finalist Eugenie Bouchard in the second round.
