Coco Gauff will be #1 in doubles if she & Pegula win the title in Toronto.

Yes, that would be semantics from my side. I did not look that up, and you are correct there.
The WTA still doesn't call them Masters tournaments. They're called WTA1000 tournaments. The Masters Series is solely ATP.

I'm not sure the WTA wants to call any of their tournaments "Masters Tournaments."

I don't see a problem, but marketing is important. WTA1000 is good enough for me. It says how many points they are getting. Good enough.

Her statement is pretty spot on though.

It is, but her opinion is colored by her already illustrious career. A young player would likely have a different opinion.

Gauff is no longer the youngest player in the top 100. That honor now goes to 17 year old Linda Noskova. There are several other teenagers in the top 100, but they all will turn 20 before the end of the year.

For men there are two teenagers in the top 100 - Carlos Alcaraz and Holger Rune. Only slightly older (20) are Lorenzo Musetti, Jack Draper and Jiri Lehecka.

Linda Noskova is very talented from the little I have seen her play. I look forward to seeing more from her.

Except not necessarily. Only Indian Wells, Miami, Madrid and Beijing are worth 1000 points for the winners. The other five "WTA1000" are only worth 900 points.

And the WTA500 and WTA250 give 470 and 280 points respectively to the winners, just as they did before the renaming.

Go figure.

Thanks for explaining that, because I would have never thought so.
