    There will be three American men *21 and under* inside the Top 50 (Fritz, Tiafoe, Opelka) on Monday for the first time since 2003.

    I have a question. About a week ago, I saw Eugenie Bouchard lose a match to Lauren Davis badly. Today, Bouchard's rank is #112. What is everyone's prediction about the highest singles' rank she will achieve at any time in the future? I'm not sure we'll ever see her much higher than right now, but I could be wrong.

    So many variables, it's hard to predict. I hope she can find her 2014 level again. Maybe this wave of Canadian players will inspire her. I feel like anyone who gets to a Wimbledon final has the game to be a consistent Top 50 player. I never liked watching her play, though, because of the aesthetics of her game (let's hold the jokes about the other aesthetics). She kinda reminds me of Roddick, with torquey, herky-jerky motions.

    I don't think she'll get much higher than she is now. Maybe creep into the top 100 once in a while, but about where she is now is where I expect her to stay in large part. If a turnaround was going to happen, I think it already would've occurred within the last 2 years. She's been at the level where she should be playing challengers and 250s more often than not for a while now, but opts for bigger stuff many times where she flames out early on. I don't see a way to build her ranking with that approach. And even more than that, she's played those levels in recent years and still doesn't win the title, doesn't even make it to the semis and finals regularly when she does drop down at all.

    I think it's possibly been determined that her popularity and social media success is too tied to tennis for her to flat out retire. But as long as she keeps it around this level and plays most majors, that is good enough to continue getting enough attention to fuel her marketing career.

    NAOMI OSAKA RECLAIMS WTA WORLD NO.1 RANKING


    Naomi Osaka is set to reclaim the WTA World No.1 ranking on Monday, August 12 after reaching the quarterfinals at the Rogers Cup presented by National Bank (Toronto). The Japanese star will end the reign of Ashleigh Barty, who has held the top ranking for seven weeks following back-to-back title runs at Roland Garros and the Nature Valley Classic (Birmingham).

    Osaka became the first Japanese player - man or woman - to ascend to World No.1 after capturing her second consecutive Grand Slam at the Australian Open in January, and the 26th player overall. At 21 years, 104 days old, Osaka was the youngest player to make her No.1 debut since 2010 when Caroline Wozniacki achieved this milestone at 20 years, 92 days old.


    The 2018 US Open champion has had a successful 12 months, highlighted by her major titles at Flushing Meadows and Melbourne Park. In addition, Osaka reached the final in her home tournament last September at the Toray Pan Pacific Open (Tokyo) and advanced to three semifinals at the 2018 China Open (Beijing), 2019 Brisbane International and 2019 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix (Stuttgart).

    Exactly as she did the first time around. Though this loss was much more understandable.

    Andreescu moves up to number 8 in the Race to Shenzhen. Incredible, considering how little she's played this year (essentially January, March, one match at the French Open and this week in Toronto). And she has only two (main-draw) match wins at the majors.

    Of course, that also speaks to how spread out the results have been on the WTA this year.

    I think Serena will be up to 8 this week, which will be good for her USO seeding
