Dinara Safina is the best woman in tennis

Dinara Safina
Dinara Safina is the best woman in tennis – just look at the rankings. We won’t be flaming Safina (not too much anyway) as we’re still bitter about the whole Jankovic experience and although everything that was thrown at Jankovic can be thrown at Safina, at least Dinara’s sufficiently humble about it all. And since Safina’s defending so many points on clay unless she quickly turns her game around there’ll be a new number one soon anyway. And then we can flame them if they’re slamless. Anyone else think pretty soon it’ll be Azarenka and Wozniacki fighting it out for top spot?

The new number one wasn’t included in the powerhouse Russian Fed Cup team which however does include three top tenners. Well if you have five players in the top ten you can afford to pick whoever you want. Either that or Safina isn’t considered above third in the Russian rankings. Dementieva also missed the cut wasn’t needed.

They’ll be playing Pennetta and co in the Fed Cup Semi. Is Roberta Vinci now the top Italian on clay?

Team USA ventures to the Czech Republic to lose to face Benesova, Kvitova and Safarova. As usual they’re Williamsless. Will the US have to get a new Fed Cup Captain (and lawsuit etc) if Oudin, Mattek and Glatch lose on carpet?

Caroline Wozniacki is now only a handful of points away from snaring tenth spot in the rankings.

In Barcelona Tipsarevic won, Andreev won, Gulbis lost, Kukushkin won, Berdych won and Ferrero lost.
