April 17, 2009 - TENNIS TOP TEN

This week...the Men proved even more that Tennis is a male-dominated sport in this era, as they occupied the top 4 spots. This means that Andy Murray reaches his career high ranking of number 4 in this Top Ten by winning the "5th Grand Slam" in the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami. He and his best bud Novak Djokovic also gets the distinction of most tournaments played in the season. In contrast, lack of matches has caused Nikolay Davydenko to tumble out of the rankings after consistently hanging tight at number 10.

As for the girls...the "Number 1 Slamless Wonders" Dinara Safina and Jelena Jankovic are slowly losing their grip in their positions. And with massive points to defend this claycourt season, their rankings are soon in serious threat.

Meanwhile, a new coach means a new hope for Ana Ivanovic, as she makes a comeback at number 10. It would be a tall order for the Serbian, however, to keep this pace as Juan Martin del Potro lurks just right outside the Top Ten and will surely race her to the finish in the coming weeks.
