Alex Eala reaches career-high No. 169 in WTA singles rankings

April 21 ------ Alex Eala has risen anew to a career-high singles ranking in the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA), jumping three notches from No. 172 to No. 169. The development came despite her short stint at the W75 Bellinzona International Tennis Federation (ITF) tournament in Switzerland last week, where she lost in straight sets to Frenchwoman Selena Janicijevic in the first round. 


Eala, 18, also matched her career-high doubles ranking of No. 245 after she and French partner Estelle Cascino ruled the W75 Croissy-Beaubourg tournament late last month. The country’s top tennis singles player is currently competing in the Oeiras Ladies Open, a WTA125 event in Portugal, where she is scheduled to meet Romanian Gabriela Lee in the first round. 


She and Australian Taylah Preston are also seeing action in the doubles, where they are set to clash with Spaniard Nuria Parrizas-Diaz and Frenchwoman Leolia Jeanjean.
