A-l :d

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

That stat about the players ranked between 20 and 50 is amazing. There must have been a lot of exits from the top 50 this year.

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

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

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

Exclamation

Great, thanks! I'm astounded about Shinobu; I had no idea she had risen so far this year.

Many other surprises for me there, too (Anna C; Anabel , Klara, and Shahar in particular) -- I guess I haven't been paying enough attention to the rankings.

Alicia Molik n8 (24 y.o and 1 month) -n28

This reminds me that Molik was becoming a major force on the tour when she got ill.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
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

Look at their age too. Its like a tidal wave building up behind a relatively old top 10.
