February 3, 2009 - TENNIS TOP TEN

This week...the new season is becoming one of the hottest yet with the thrilling conclusion of the Australian Open! Injury and poor performance cause the resident eye candies Maria Sharapova and Ana Ivanovic to finally drop out of the top ten. With a whopping record of approximately 1,400 points added in the rankings, things have truly been shaken up for 2009. AO runner-up Dinara Safina is the biggest gainer with a giant leap from outside of the top ten to number 6. Stealthily, Nikolay Davydenko also makes a surprise debut at number 10, giving the Men a 5-to-5 proportion with the Women in the rankings.

AO champion Rafael Nadal fully solidified his hold at the peak with a massive 200-point lead from the secondary sensitive Swiss, Roger Federer. Meanwhile, AO champion Serena Williams toppled Novak Djokovic from the third spot.
