General Performance Index©
(GPI: General Performance Index): "It is an index that measures the performance that a tennis player has had in a given period of time." This index, not shown here, is used to make the "General Performance Rank-ing© or GPI Ranking© ".

In this report, we have the data for the third quarterly of the 2019 season correspond-ing to the performance of the 50 best play-ers according to the GPI Ranking©. During this period, the podium is made up of Sofia Kenin (USA), Elina Svitolina (UKR) and Naomi Osaka (JPN), in positions 1, 2 and 3 respectively of the General Performance Ranking© (table 1).

The WTA Ranking that has been taken for this report is on October 7th, 2019.

The rest of the players are shown in table 1, standing out in the Top 10 of the GPI Ranking©, Ashleigh Barty (AUS), Kiki Bertens (NED), Karolina Pliskova (CZE), Elena Rybakina (KAZ), Alison Van Uyt-vanck (BEL), Magda Linette (POL) and Alison Riske (USA).

As we mentioned, in the monthly delivery report No. 96 of the month of September, the young American Sofia Kenin has con-solidated this great performance in this third quarterly of the season occupying the No. 1 position of the GPI Ranking©. Escorted by Elina Svitolina and Naomi Osaka, who have also had an amazing performance this quar-terly.

We can observe that, practically all the ta-bles (except the tables 2 and 3, that are not sorted by performance). Kenin and Svito-lina lead them masterfully. The work of their teams (coaches, therapists, etc.) and the own desire to be better athletes is the fuel that these young tennis players have to stand out among the best tennis players in the world. It´s nice to see how young tennis players insist on improving tournament after tournament. The great challenge is the reg-ularity over time that they must achieve without suffering wear and injuries.

Other players to highlight are Elise Mertens (BEL) and Kiki Bertens (NED) with regard their performance this quarterly. They appear in several tables accompany-ing Sofia Kenin and Elina Svitolina.
