In her final year on the Hologic WTA Tour, Danielle Collins is going out with a bang.

Having won her first WTA 1000 title a week ago in Miami, the American took her hot form on to clay to win the Credit One Charleston Open as well last week — again as an unseeded player without the aid of a first-round bye. Her winning streak now stands at a career-best 13 matches.

Collins’ previous longest winning streak also encompassed a surface change. In 2021, she won her maiden title on the red clay of Palermo, and followed it by another trophy in San Jose and a third-round run in Montreal to win 12 straight matches.

The 30-year-old climbs another seven places from No.22 to No.15 this week, returning to the Top 20 for the first time since January 2023. Collins was ranked No.71 just nine weeks ago.
