ATP: MARIA SAKKARI Breaks into TOP 10 1

With Stefanos Tsitsipas at No. 3 and Sakkari at No. 10, Greece is one of only two countries with Top 10 players on both the ATP and WTA rankings right now, along with Spain.

The woman who beat Swiatek in the semifinals of Ostrava over the weekend, Maria Sakkari, also makes a very notable move today, rising from No. 12 to No. 10 to become the second Greek player—and first Greek woman—to reach the Top 10 in either ATP or WTA rankings history. Stefanos Tsitsipas was the first Greek player to do it—he’s currently holding steady at a career-high of No. 3 on the ATP rankings.

Before Tsitsipas and Sakkari, the only Greek player to even reach the Top 20 was Eleni Daniilidou, who peaked at No. 14 in the world in the early 2000s.

With Tsitsipas at No. 3 and Sakkari at No. 10, Greece is one of only two countries to have Top 10 players on both the ATP and WTA rankings right now—Spain is the other, with Rafael Nadal currently ranked No. 6 and Garbine Muguruza at No. 9.
