WTA has refreshed the list of the world's top female tennis players. The current edition includes three athletes from Ukraine; the names of Elina Svitolina, Lesya Tsurenko and Dayana Yastremska are on the list, actually in the Top 40. 

While Svitolina remains 7th and Tsurenko comes 24th on the ranking, 18-year-old Yastremska also made it to the upper part of the list. 

Most recently, the rising star of Ukrainian tennis, Yastremska triumphed in WTA Thailand Open. The rival of young Ukrainian was Croatian tennis player Ajla Tomljanović. In the first two sets, the athletes exchanged confident victories. The things changed in the decisive third set. In the beginning, Yastremska lost three of her four services, losing 2:5, but was able to bring the match to a tiebreaker, in which she gave her rival only one inning.

Svitolina, on the other hand, lost the quarterfinal game of the Australian Open to Naomi Osaka. The Japanese eventually won the tournament.
