June 12, 2009 - TENNIS TOP TEN

This week...Some surprising results in Roland Garros 2009 has truly shaken up the rankings. With a win in Paris, that pitches him as the "Greatest Tennis Player of All Time," Roger Federer amassed major points ahead of the other ranked players not by the name of Rafael Nadal. He still has a lot of work cut out to regain his throne from the King of Clay, but The French Open championship, that served as the icing on his Career Grand Slam cake, has hugely diminished their gap. It doesn't spell good news, though, that semifinalist Juan Martin del Potro has now entered the scene, debuting at number 8.

Meanwhile, the Serbians had some bad days, with 2 popular girls dropping out of the top ten, and remaining flagbearer Novak Djokovic finally losing his spot to Andy Murray. A helpless Dinara Safina can only stay put at number 5, while Serena Williams needs more proof she's the best of all, as she stays beneath the Slamless wonder. On the other hand, it took a long-awaited 2nd Grand Slam win, and triumph over self demons, for Svetlana Kuznetsova to reenter the top ten.

Can Rafa lose the # ranking for not playing Wimby or will it take more than that to dethrone him?

Rafa won't lose the #1 ranking. He still has some considerable points ahead of Roger, even if he would have to lose points for not defending his Wimby title. You have to remember, too, that Roger reached the finals last year. Thus, even if Roger wins the Championship in 2 weeks, that would just be a tad better than last year, so it wouldn't add much points to his stock.
