August 20, 2009 - TENNIS TOP TEN

This week...there are no changes to the top 6, but the way things are going, there soon might be big ones (especially with the US Open looming around). While Rafael Nadal continues to lead the pack of young guns, Andy Murray is slowly catching up with him, intending to steal away the number 2 spot. With solid performance on the US Open Series, the 22-year old Scot will try to catch his long-awaited maiden Grand Slam trophy in Flushing Meadows. And the same could be said with his best bud Novak Djokovic.

Svetlana Kuznetsova drops out once again of the top ten after a short-lived stay. Meanwhile, fellow Russian Dinara Safina keeps the women's crown, albeit should be shared with her "can't-live-without" coach. Top Cincinnati girl Jelena Jankovic rises and returns to the bottom edge of the top ten, as Venus Williams and Juan Martin del Potro slip one notch each to number 8 and 9 respectively.
