When the new rankings will be released on Monday, Jelena Jankovic will find herself again behind Serena Williams as world #2. Venus will fall to #4 after failing to defend 900 ranking points from last year.

Here're are the current standings before the Wimbledon finals.

1. WILLIAMS, SERENA 7875
2. JANKOVIC, JELENA 5900
3. WOZNIACKI, CAROLINE 5630
4. WILLIAMS, VENUS 5606
5. STOSUR, SAMANTHA 4890
6. DEMENTIEVA, ELENA 4670
7. CLIJSTERS, KIM 4510
8. SCHIAVONE, FRANCESCA 4425
9. ZVONAREVA, VERA 3965
10. LI, NA 3756

Zvonareva can go to as high as #7 if she wins Wimbledon; Serena will remain #1 whether she wins or not. Li Na is back in the top 10. Henin will reach a comeback high of #13. Safina will be ranked no higher than 33, and if she doesn't play well in the summer - she'd be in danger of not making it in the seeds list come the US Open. Kvitova will be in the top 30, and Pironkova will jump into the top 40.

^ Very happy with this TOP 10. Radwanksa out. :)

Will be happy to see Henin back in place of Caro. But since Caro's ranked rather high, it's very unlikely.

Woz being #3 after being embarrassed at a slam yet again is a bit :tape: Apart from that a solid lineup.

RG SF really saved Elena though, or I doubt she would've stayed in the Top 10 after missing Wimbly. :awww:

JJ had to retire in her 4R, and Venus performed better than Woz but still dropped while Woz went up. :shrug:

Either way it doesn't matter. After the USO she'll be ranked closer to where she belongs. ;)

obviously she will go up since vinas had a lot to defend and didn't and dropped...dropping does tend to bump up the players you drop below :weirdo:

Not just Sharapova. Even if injured, Henin is closer to the top10 than Maria. And she has zero points to defend.

Jelena has very little points to defend for the rest of the year really... Her and Serena should battle over #1 for the rest of the year...

Jelena has very few points at the US Open/Beijing, but she went on to win Cincinnati and make the SFs of Doha, so she needs to defend those.

Caro's got lots to defend at USO, and Serena could pick up more if she makes it to the final and/or wins.

Looking forward to seeing who'll hold the coveted #1 spot at the end of the year!

Agree. After Wimbledon, Serena will be leading the Race to the Championships; and Venus will be #2. She has a chance to catch up during the summer and fall.
