OMG, it's happened so quickly, that's almost 4 years at the top spot, and she's only 20! <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Hingis milestone: 200 weeks at No. 1

August 6, 2001

Martina Hingis was ranked No. 1 for the 200th week on Monday, a milestone reached by only three other players in women's tennis.

The last 64 of those weeks have been consecutive, even though the Swiss star has not won a title since late February, her third of the year. She has not won a Grand Slam event since the 1999 Australian Open.

Hingis, who took over the No. 1 spot from Lindsay Davenport, is able to stay on top by playing a lot of tournaments and avoiding early exits.

Steffi Graf holds the women's mark for most weeks at No. 1 -- 377. She is followed by Martina Navratilova (331) and Chris Evert (262).

In her most recent match, Hingis lost to Monica Seles in the semifinals of the Acura Classic on Saturday.

<font size= 2> <font color= "red"> I was just thinking, Martina's been criticised for not deserving the spot, and people say number 1 doesn't matter, but just imagine if Venus never gets the top spot, that will be a huge blemish in her career! (sorry Suse, trying to make myself feel better)! <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Anyways, congrats again Martina, you may not have won the Acura, but you look hotter than ever! <IMG SRC="smilies/hearts.gif" border="0">
