Tennis: Swiatek celebrates 100 weeks as world number one

# Tennis: Iga Swiatek from Poland is celebrating a hundred weeks of being world number one today. This put her ninth on the all-time list. But there are a few players knocking on the door, such as Elena Rybakina of Kazakhstan, who beat her in the semifinals of the Stuttgart Open last week. Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus briefly took over as world number one in September last year, while American Coco Gauff is also a serious contender. The WTA tour goes to Spain for the Madrid Open this week.
