After winning the US open title on Sunday, 22-year-old Naomi Osaka is back into the top 3 in the latest WTA rankings released on Monday.
Osaka won the US Open title after securing a win over Victoria Azarenka in the final. She climbed six spots to sit on the third position. The 22-year-old registered a 1-6, 6-3, 6-3 win in the decider over Azarenka.
The 2018 champion had overcome an inspired assault from Azarenka in the opening set to win her third career Grand Slam crown after one hour and 53 minutes on Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Every time Osaka has progressed beyond the fourth round of a major, she has ended up winning the title.
Her three Grand Slam trophies now tie her with Angelique Kerber for the fourth-highest total among active players, behind only Serena Williams, Venus Williams, and Kim Clijsters.
Meanwhile, Azarenka made a jump of 13 places to claim the 14th position.
