Following an eventful first week of the 2018 tennis season, here’s a look at the standout stats from all the action.

Tournaments took place in Brisbane, Doha, Pune, Shenzhen, and Auckland along with the mixed teams exhibition Hopman Cup in Perth, in opening week.

Check out these Seven Deadly Stats from the week gone by…

Goerges started Moscow last October ranked No. 27 in the world. She is now up to a career-high No. 12 thanks to her three consecutive title triumphs.
