<font size=3>Ferrer ends second straight year as #1<font size=2>
Larissa Ferrer of Great Britian ended her second straight year on the FWTT as the #1 player. Larissa won the Australian Open and was finalist at US Open.
Followed behind her was the resurgant Sabine Graf, who made her rise to the rankings following her Wimbledon win. Sabine also won several tournaments, assuring her of the #2 ranking.
Ruflina Taliamanosoko, the first black player to be ranked in the top 5, finds herself at #3 with a dramatic year. Missing the first 5 months with pregnancy, she made the finals of the French and Wimbledon, before finally winning the US Open.
Nicole Arenot, the #4, made waves after the French when she went on a tear and won several tournaments.
Jelena Dokic, who has only played for one year, is placed at #5. With very consistent and strong results, she is one to look for next year.
The rest of the top 10:
6 - Marteena Huubere (Aus) 620 pts. <br />7 - Selima Valentine (Ger) 616 pts. <br />8 - Eva Sorrenta (Can) 591 pts. <br />9 - Jane Wong (Hkg) 566 pts. <br />10 - Regla Torres (Col) 548 pts.
