No melamine here: Congratulations to Caroline Wozniacki, who’ll replace Serena Williams as the top WTAer when the rankings are released on Monday; she’s the first Dane (man or woman) to hold the number one ranking. Caro’s 6-3, 6-2 win over Petra Kvitova in the third round of the China Open put her ahead of Serena, who’s scheduled to return to the tour at the Generali Open in Linz, Austria next week. (Draw: See how the China Open quarters are stacking up.)
Although Wozniacki still doesn’t have a Grand Slam title to her name, we think that there isn’t a question about whether this top ranking is deserved. Five titles in 2010, a consistent performance throughout the year, and a game that’s still growing. It should only be a matter of time before she bags one. (Even before Jankovic, no?)
And while we still think that Kirilenko‘s bod would do better in these adidas by Stella McCartney outfits, you can’t fault adi for the switch; Caro’s already given these clothes more camera time than Makiri ever did.
