Lesia Tsurenko has become the fourth Ukrainian tennis player to reach the top 25, according to the updated WTA rankings.

Tusrenko was just two points away from victory against the No. 5 seed Karolina Pliskova at the final of the Brisbane International on Jan. 6, but the former World No.1 rallied to deuce and won 14 straight points en route to capping a thrilling second set comeback. She went on to win the match  4-6, 7-5, 6-2.

Tsurenko reached No. 26 for the first time last year following the US Open where she made it to the quarterfinals.

Other Ukrainians in the top 100 are:

  • Elina Svitolina at No. 6,  down two spots
  • Dayana Yastremskaya at No. 59, down one spot
  • Kateryna Kozlova at No. 97, up one spot
