WTA YTD Rankings 5.12.2014: Maria Sharapova On The Move After Back To Back Wins In Stuttgart and Madrid

Maria Sharapova went into the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix with a lot on the line. She had been seemingly distracted by a myriad of off-court endeavors. If she didn’t make at least a semifinal run in Stuttgart, she would fall out of the top 10 rankings. Considering that she was ranked #2 at the start of 2014 and the caliber of her play at its best, a top 10 in May without Sharapova seemed unthinkable in January. Well…Masha made sure it didn’t happen, winning in Stuttgart. In her next event, she backed up her first title in 2014 with her second at the Mutua Madrid Open. She still has work to do to challenge the very top of the rankings and money list, moving up just a few notches to world #7 from world #9 (rankings). However, she does move to #3 in the Race To Singapore standings, the points list to determine the end of year WTA Championships qualifiers.
