This and That

The WTA's top 10 changed very little from last week.

Australian Open champion Jennifer Capriati retained the No. 1 ranking she gained this month when Lindsay Davenport missed tournaments because of knee surgery.

Davenport is No. 2, followed by Venus Williams, Australian Open runner-up Martina Hingis, Kim Clijsters and Serena Williams.

It's amazing that both Lindsay and Serena stayed in their respective positions having not picked up their racquets

No. 7 Justine Henin and No. 8 Amelie Mauresmo both moved ahead of No. 9 Jelena Dokic, while Monica Seles remained No. 10.




SERVING IT UP: Second-seeded Venus Williams left Melbourne without the Australian Open trophy, but she did produce the fastest serve of the women's tournament.

Williams, who lost in the quarterfinals to Monica Seles, had a top effort of 122 mph.

Iroda Tulyaganova of Uzbekistan was next with a serve of 113 mph, followed by Amelie Mauresmo at 111 mph.

not that amazing if you'd looked at their points beforehand - they were so far ahead that they could afford to not play in terms of rankings. Lindsay will start to fall next week.

Congrats to Venus incidentally. Also to Iroda and Amélie. Well done girls.
