Melbourne, Australia, 5 November 2013 |

Casey Dellacqua, Jarmila Gajdosova and Tammi Patterson have surged in the latest release of the WTA rankings.

Dellacqua, who at the weekend won her second straight $50,000 ITF title in Bendigo as part of the Australian Pro Tour, jumped 22 places to world No.130.

In the past fortnight, the 28-year-old has improved her ranking by 51 spots, jumping from fifth to second on the Australian rankings.

Patterson, Dellacqua’s victim in the final, rose 71 places to No.304, putting her within striking distance of her career-high mark of No.289, set back in February 2011.

Meanwhile, Gajdosova’s success last week at the WTA 125K event in Nanjing, China, boosted the 26-year-old’s ranking by 68 spots.

The Victorian, sidelined for much of 2013 due to mononucleosis, was playing her first event in more than six months; she qualified for the main draw and then went on to reach the semifinals.

She currently sits at world No.232.

The 20-year-old is now ranked 916th.
