Barty, Pliskova & Bertens Round Out Star Studded WTA Top 5 Following Paris
Showing no signs of slowing down and that her Top 10 appearance was no fluke, Bertens, like Pliskova, has shown her outstanding consistency and ability to compete at a high-level week after week. Bertens has two titles thus far in 2019: St. Petersburg and Madrid – where Bertens knocked off three consecutive Top 10 challengers to claim her second Premier Mandatory title. Semifinal appearances at Sydney, Stuttgart and Rome; in addition to her first fourth round appearance at Indian Wells, have led Bertens to her first Top 5 appearance.
Shifting away from her best surface (clay), Bertens will look to further shake up the WTA rankings and build on a quarterfinal appearance at last year’s Wimbledon Championships.
