Garbiñe Muguruza's maiden Roland Garros victory earned her one of the most impressive moves of the fortnight on the Road To Singapore; the Spaniard shot up 13 spots from No.17 to put herself at No.4 in line for qualification for the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global.
Up to a career-high ranking of No.2 on the WTA rankings, Muguruza is now in pole position to play the WTA Finals for a second straight year. In her 2015 debut, she roared through the round robin stage without dropping a match, losing to eventual champion Agnieszka Radwanska in three grueling sets.
The Top 3 shuffled on the Road To Singapore leaderboard, giving us a new No.1 in 21-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams. Despite finishing second to Muguruza at the French Open, the American has nonetheless enjoyed a near-perfect start to 2016, one that has seen her reach the finals or better at four of her five tournaments this season.
Semifinalists Samantha Stosur and Kiki Bertens enjoyed the biggest bumps; former US Open champion Stosur nearly cut her Road To Singapore ranking in half to go from No.16 to No.9, while Bertens put herself in Singapore contention by moving from No.35 to No.12.
