Junior girls

Emerson Jones remains the the top-ranked Australian in the latest ITF World Tennis Tour junior girls’ rankings, sitting at a career-high world No.3.

The 15-year-old from the Gold Coast is the highest-ranked Australian junior girl since Ash Barty, who was also 15 at the time, peaked at world No.2 in 2011.

Alana Subasic is proving another to watch, with the 17-year-old from Sydney recording 22 wins from her 28 singles matches so far in 2024.

This has helped Subasic, who missed six months last year with a broken wrist, improve her ranking almost 200 places since January.

Kimiko Cooper is the biggest mover of the week. The 16-year-old from Sydney rises 24 places after advancing to the third round at an ITF J300 tournament in Malaysia.
