Serena rises in rankings!
Justine Henin's recent retirement has caused an "up shift" in the WTA rankings for many of the players. Serena is now #5 in the world and Maria Sharapova is the new world #1. Serena also rises to #3 in the Race to the Sony Ericsson Year End Championships. Serena has shown great form this year and has already won 3 titles in a row (Bangalore, Miami and Charleston). It has been a while since Serena won 3 titles in the same year. The best is yet to come!
