Andrea Petkovic has reached #10 today for the first time. Congrats! She's been added in the first post.

Kinda surprising that Caroline is almost as old as Maria was when she had her last week at #1!

How about AGE vs LAST WEEK AT #1 and/or AGE vs HIGHEST RANK - could you do that?

Thanks!

The next rankings to be published Monday will have Na Li at #6 - a new career high. I've already added her in the first post.

I will probably not bump the thread every time I make an update in the future. But please bump it if I forget to keep it updated (or PM me)...

Schiavone got a new career high ranking of #4 in the latest ranking published a few days ago, so I've updated the first post accordingly. I have also removed the now retired Henin and Dementieva from all the tables in the thread. It would probably not do any harm to keep them there, but since this is about active players I thought it would be best to remove them - at least for consistency reasons.

Hingis was 5-5 in Slam finals when she turned 20, Sharapova was 2-1. Hingis was 3-1 in Slam finals before turning 17. Winning Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open and making the final of the French Open. WOW!

Posts updated as Wozniacki and Zvonareva have new career-high rankings of #1 and #3 respectively.

Zvonareva reached a career-high #4 yesterday, so I've added her in the no. 4 table in the first post. Well done by Vera, btw!

Your wink-smiley already suggests the answer, but I'll say it anyway: It was of course very difficult to reach the #1 spot when Venus and Serena were so young, because Hingis and Davenport were so consitant and had a firm grip of that spot in those years.

Another thing I have to stress is that Serena moved incredibly fast in the lower rankings. It took her only 18 month to move from outside of the top 1000 and into the top 10 - by far the fastest ranking progression in those ranks among active players!
