Re: Interesting Fact: 1st time in WTA history every player in top 8...

Code:
WTA  ATP
1.BLR   SUI
2.RUS   SRB
3.USA   GBR
4.POL   ESP
5.CZE   ESP
6.GER   FRA
7.CHN   CZE
8.ITA   ARG
9.AUS
10.FRA
11.DEN
12.SRB
13.SVK
All WTA TOP13 is from 13 different countries, and 7 countries is represented into ATP TOP8! Its sound perfect till we take look from which regions they come: EUROPE, EUROPE, EUROPE, EUROPE, EUROPE... all the way!

At WTA TOP64 (WTA PM&P5 and ATP Masters are 64-draw events) there is just 12 non-European players (so in ATP with 20 this kind of distributions are actually better)!

BTW, there is also one bizarre fact about WTA TOP rank this season. For example between Roland Garros and US Open all TOP8 players are also from 8 different countries - but half of them been players with Polish decent, despite only Radwanska represented Poland (today - 4 out of TOP11).

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
