The biggest news in the Top 5 is Svetlana up 1 NR spot after her impressive victory in Miami defeating world n1 Amelie Mauresmo and n4 Maria Sharapova both in straight sets. That performance allows her to be back in the Top 10 world elite.
No real change in the Top 5 to 10 with stable NR and stable WR.
In the Top 15, young Elena Vesnina continues her rise in the NR (1 place) and in the WR (+5). In Miami she reached the 3rs round upsettinf 11 seed and world n13 Francesca Schiavone before falling to teenage french star Tatiana Golovin (n24 in the WR).
Anastasia Rodionova enters the Top 15, up 5 spots in the WR and reaching her ever best ranking reaching the final round of the qualies in Miami (falling to n108 Vania King) and the 2nd round of the qualies in Indian Wells (loosing to Top seed n69 and back to good form Eleni Daniilidou).
Elena Bovina continues to slump in the WR facing injuries and now closed to be out of the Top 100.
Galina Vosboeva has the sadest record of the biggest fall in the WR (-25). In march 2005, she reached the final round of the qualies in Miami and the quater final in Ortisei $75 challenger whereas she lost both time in the 1rst round this year. She was quite unlucky to face 2nd seed n63 Marta Domachowska at Ortesei and 5th seed of the qualies/n79 Maria Elena Camerin in Miami.
Last month new entry Vasilisa continues to rise in the NR and WR playing challengers: she first compteted in Orange 50K reaching the main draw 1rst round as a qualifer (loosing to n134 Lilia Osterloh). In Redding 25K, she made it to the quater final falling to surprising qualifer and eventual winner n330 Diana Ospina.
At least, an impressive new entry at n18 of the NR: Alla played every week in march on the ITF Tour with up and downs: runner up at Las Palmas $25K (falling to n190 Kirsten Flipkens), 1rst round at Telde $25K (falling to n221 Julia Gabba), QF at Fuertaventura $25K (upsetting top seed/n147 Olga Blahotova en route, loosing to n246 Dominika Nociarova), and runner up once again at St Petersburg $25K (falling to n223 Alberta Brianti).
