May 5, 2009 - TENNIS TOP TEN

This week...the Men held strong to the top 4 spots, with world number 1 Rafael Nadal sitting comfortably as the king of this claycourt season, with fresh new Master Series Championship titles in Monte Carlo and Rome. His red dirt adversary for the 2 events, Novak Djokovic, also stays strong at number 3, but needs more titles to overtake Roger Federer, despite the recent infamous wins against the Swiss maestro.

The Women, on the other hand, have made a little switcheroo in the rankings. Dinara Safina, though slamless, proves that she is this season's top girl, and gains the number 5 spot. This brings the Williams sisters, the self-proclaimed best players, a notch down each.
