Tennis Canada – By winning the title in Doha, she will break into  the WTA Top 10 in doubles for the first time
Montreal, QC, February 18, 2018 – When the WTA rankings are updated on Monday morning, Gabriela Dabrowski will be ranked inside the Top 10 in doubles for the first time at no. 8. She will become only the fourth Canadian to accomplish this feat, after Eugenie Bouchard (no. 5 in singles), Carling Bassett-Seguso (no. 8 in singles), and Jill Hetherington (no. 6 in doubles).

“Gabriela’s progression has been very impressive in the past few years. She has accomplished feats that few others have done before, as evidenced by her participation in the WTA Finals last year, her two Grand Slam titles in mixed doubles and now her spot in the Top 10,” stated Sylvain Bruneau, National Head Coach in charge of the women’s program at Tennis Canada and Fed Cup captain. “Since the start of this season, she has continued to prove that she is currently one of the best doubles players in the world.”

At 25 years of age, Dabrowski now holds seven career WTA doubles titles after being crowned champion in Doha on Sunday. The Ottawa native and partner Jelena Ostapenko defeated Spaniard Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez and Andreja Klepac of Slovenia 6-3, 6-3 in the final. In 2017, Dabrowski qualified for the WTA Finals in Singapore which brings together the top 8 teams in the world. She’s also a two-time Grand Slam champion in mixed doubles, winning the Australian Open last month and Roland-Garros in 2017. In Paris, she became the first Canadian woman to win a Grand Slam. Dabrowski will play her next tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami.  

“Ideally, I wanted to be Top 10 in 2020 to solidify my spot in time for Tokyo Olympics, so I’m a little premature, but I’m honoured to have my name currently alongside some amazing players,” Dabrowski said about her latest achievement.
