Elise Mertens reserves just before the start of Wimbledon, her fifteenth place in the world ranking.

The Limburg was last week to get started on the tournament of Eastbourne. She died there in the third round (1/8th finals) against the White-Russian Aryna Sabalenka, who later (surprisingly) the final would play.

At Wimbledon is Mertens in the first round against American Danielle Collins (WTA 41). Twelve months ago she had it in her debut on the main table right away record against Venus Williams. So with a 7-6 (9/7) 6-4 to something too strong. Mertens has so little points to defend on the London grass.

Kirsten Flipkens showed last week that they have the good form to tackle. Flipper won on the ITF grastoernooi English-Southsea ($100,000) for both the single – doubles. In the ranking wins the halvefinaliste of Wimbledon 2013 six places. She is 45th and jumps over Alison Van Uytvanck (47th, -1).

Yanina Wickmayer, the fourth Belgian woman at the main table of Wimbledon, is no. 101 (+1).

At the top of the WTA ranking continues to be the Romanian Simona Halep, the paste swinging for the Danish Caroline Wozniacki, who lived in Eastbourne Sabalenka of the title held. The 20-year-old White-Russian is rewarded with thirteen places of profit and is now 32nd.

The Spanish Garbine Muguruza, who at Wimbledon, her title to defend, reserves the third place for the American Sloane Stephens and Ukrainian Elina Svitolina.
