World No.1 Victoria Azarenka suffered her first defeat of the year at the hands of Marion Bartoli on Wednesday at the Sony Ericsson Open. It was the Frenchwoman's third career victory over a reigning No.1.

Re: World No.1 Beaters

thanks - quite interesting.
gives you some idea of how good nadia could have been, and once again how much serena, even when not ranked #1, still has the odds to win against anyone in the world, including the reigning #1 of any given time.
would be interesting to see all of these players win/loss records *without* serena. i figure it would drastically change venus' winning %, obviously.
Kuznetsova lost a fair share against Henin despite always pushing her.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
