Top ranked in singles and doubles, Hantuchova prepares to keep No. 1 rankings


World’s No. 1 in both rankings holding the Australian Open singles trophy.

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Disappointing. That’s the word Daniela Hantuchova used to described her year.

After reaching the Canberra and Sydney singles finals and winning the Australian Open singles and doubles titles, the No. 1 ranked player has struggled to find any kind of form throughout the clay and grass season.

“Clay wasn’t too bad. I won a few doubles titles and had a good showing at the French Open. It was grass, I had trouble finding my footing and it’s just too damn slippery.”

When one looks at her accomplishments, it’s far from disappointing. Hantuchova is:

*first and only player so far to be ranked No. 1 in doubles
*spent over --- weeks at No. 1 in singles
*spent over -- weeks at No. 1 in doubles
*won 5 doubles titles (Canberra, Australian Open, Berlin, Rome and Eastbourne)
*first to win both singles and doubles events at the same tournament (Australian Open singles and doubles)
*first player to win the singles, doubles and mixed doubles grand slams (Australian Open singles and doubles and Wimbledon mixed doubles)

With the hardcourt season approaching, Hantuchova looks to dominate once again.

“I love hardcourts. I hope to do well here in San Diego and regain my form before heading to the US Open.”​

Kim is in San D


Kim Clijsters is in San Diego and is feeling confident this week to make something happen. "I know my game is off but if i stay mentally i can do some damage here." She faces Monica Seles in the Singles Draw. In the doubles she and Dementieva meet Tanasugarn/Sugiyama in the first rounds.

Venus Wants Title #2!



"I really played well in Australia to take my 1st title earlier in the year, then I went into a slump because of my lack of commitment, but then I made the Wimbledon Finals, so I feel my game is so much better now and I want and deserve Title #2!"

This is terrible for Seles. She FINALLY changed her game plan in the second set. The only problem was, Clijsters played it better. Hopefully this is a good learning lesson for her.

What a thrilling close match! Tanasugarn seems to have a great idea of what has to happen to be successful on the tour. Kudos to Davenport as well, who has changed her game plan. Davenport's problem? She only sent 12 #'s for the first 2 sets (it's out of 13 ;) )
