Serena Williams new number 1 and loses first match after that!!

8 10 2009

After releasing Dinara Safina from the burden of being number 1 without winning a slam(the girl has played pathetic in the last few months), Serena lost her match in the third round of the tournament in Beijing against Nadia Petrova 6-4 3-6 7-6. Serena thinks she deserves to be number 1 and I agree with her because the ranking says so and she won two slams this year. She is a better player on every surface except clay then Dinara, but I have to say both Williamses have shown some lack-luster form since Wimbledon. And losing in the third round against mega-choker Petrova(who can play excellent tennis I might add)  is not really the crown on being a new number 1 in the world. If both sisters don’t improve quickly next year Clijsters, Henin and Sharapova will win the slams.
