13 Russian women tennis players figure in WTA rating list of 100 best players

For the first time in the history of tennis 13 representatives of Russia figure in the rating list of the 100 top players of the Women's Tennis Association (WTA), it was learnt after the publishing of the new version of the rating list the day before.

Anastasia Myskina who ranks 10th with 2,106 points remains, as before, the best Russian female player. Elena Dementyeva has retained her 15th place (1,593 points) from last week, while Vera Zvonareva has gone up from the 20th to the 16th line with 1,511 points.

Special attention should be paid to 16-year-old Maria Sharapova, who last week reached a semi-final at the tournament in Burmingham, which enabled her to advance at once 37 lines ahead - from 125th place to 88th (411.25 points).

Alongside the above-said Russian women players, the rating list of the top 100 includes also: 22. Yelena Bovina (1,379.50 points), 30. Nadezhda Petrova (1,004.25), 32. Yelena Likhovtseva (941), 34. Svetlana Kuznetsova (903.25), 37. Tatyana Panova (858), 45. Lina Krasnorutskaya (757), 61. Dinara Safina (589.25), 76. Anna Kournikova (474.50), and 95. Yevgeniya Kulikovskaya (384.25).

The leaders of the rating list are the same as before. Number One in the world is Serena Williams from the USA with 6,006 points, followed with a wide gap by Belgian Kim Clijsters, her compatriot Justine Henin-Hardenne, and the older of the Williams sisters, Venus.
