Boulter's rise in the rankings has been impressive. She was ranked No. 151 in March 2023 and for many years relied on wildcards from the LTA in the UK to get into major events and boost her ranking. 

However, her hard work and dedication, along with the support of her coach Biljana Veselinovic has propelled her into the top 30. As Boulter continues her ascent in the rankings, many are excited to see what the future holds for this talented British player.
