Graphic analysis: the equality of current women's tennis

The changes in the number one, the irregularity of the seeds in the big and the multiple winners make up a very open circuit.

The development of Roland Garros has once again confirmed the equality prevailing in the women's circuit. Only three of the eight main seeds, Halep (2), Stephens (7) and Barty (8), appeared in the quarterfinals. And Stephens has already fallen with Konta in that round. The Romanian tennis player is the only one of the remaining participants who has lifted a Grand Slam in her career: Roland Garros, precisely, last year. This situation is very common in the women's circuit, where the irregularity of the tennis players is a constant.

This graph exposes the number one changes in women and how the Grand Slams have been distributed compared to men. Since Serena assumed the leadership of the ranking for three and a half years, between 2013 and 2016, there have been 12 changes at the top of world tennis. This season 27 tournaments with 23 different winners have been played: only Kvitova, Pliskova, Yastremska and Bertens have repeated. An open circuit that perhaps lacks the consistency of the great players and traditional symbols such as Federer, Nadal and Djokovic.
