Amazing run by Ankita!!

Didn't see her as being better in doubles than singles but clearly those Indian genes mean something in doubles!

Congratulations to see Ankita win a title! I have a soft spot for her as she is a fighter and has a huge heart.

For those qualities, she is quite rightly a big favourite for us all. We want her to keep winning, because she embodies all the qualities that are ideal in a sportsperson.

Her singles ranking on that live ranking site is wrong. She cannot have 486 points anda ranking of 155. She is not adding that many points from her current tally.

By my calculation, she should be at 446 points and a ranking of 168.
She is indeed at 168 in official WTA singles rankings. Live rankings were wrong.

They were right in doubles now. She is into top 100 for the first time in her career at 94.

After losing in the first round of the Adelaide WTA500 qualifying event, Ankita has left Australia as per her Instagram update. Wondering if she’s traveling home or to Qatar as she’s only 2 spots away from the qualification entry list cut-off.

It looks like we will see Ankita heading to Mexico next for the 2 WTA tournaments starting March 8th. With her new top-100 ranking, she already made the doubles main draw cut with Polish partner Paula Kania.

Yes, with that top-100 doubles ranking, Ankita will be able to make some good money playing main draws in WTA tournaments -- and trying to qualify into singles. But she will also need to keep playing the ITF and Challenger-type tournaments to preserve and build on her singles ranking.

Yes, Ankita pulled out of Pune 25K before the withdrawal deadline got over. So, looks she will go and play in these 2 Mexico WTA 250's. She would comfortably get into both doubles draws. Hopefully, she will get into singles qualifying draw too. Currently, she is about 14 out from the singles qualies cut.
