Briton Katie Boulter has broken into the top 100 of the WTA world rankings for the first time.

Boulter, 22, is now ranked 96th following her run to the quarter-finals at the Tianjin Open last week.

The Leicester-born player lost 5-7 6-0 6-3 to world number six Karolina Pliskova in China, to miss out on the biggest win of her career.

It was only Boulter’s second quarter-final at WTA level and her first match against a top-10 player.
