Jenn hasn't moved nor Elena D.. Venus and Serena have practically switched places. Significantly Hingis is gone and Seles Kournikova with big drops due to long abcenses.

look at the quality and the name power of that top 15. The top 7 and # 10 slam champions, plus # 14, throw in Kournikova and Mauresmo and you've got an incredible group of players.

Venus Williams-Ana Ivanovic-Serena Williams-Vika Azarenka-Caroline Wozniacki

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

Brodsky-Muhammad-Hampton-Keys-Crawford-Andrews-Hardebeck

Wow. That shows how much turnover there is in a short period of time.
I think in three more years, a bunch of young players like Strycova will be top 50.

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

And speaking of Hingis, she did a half hour interview with the Tennis Channel. It airs on Sunday.

It's funny to think that Elena (11 at the time) was ever that close to Serena (10 at the time)

"On the coin toss Martina said, "Do you want me to break your serve first or hold?" The umpire looked shocked. But we just both cracked up."
Lindsay Davenport, on a match she played with Martina Hingis.

Justine Henin
