WTA Tour CEO speaks on Serena returning to #1

Serena has achieved great results this year, impressing everyone with her gritty performances, especially at the Grand Slams. Regaining World No.1 ranking has been a goal of Serena’s and she’s worked very hard all year. I congratulate her on achieving this feat for the fourth time in her career.

--- Stacey Allaster, Chairman and CEO of the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour.

When the new rankings are released on Monday, Serena will be spending her 73rd (nonconsecutive) week as World #1. Serena held the top ranking for 57 weeks from July 8, 2002 to August 10, 2003; 4 weeks from September 8, 2008 to October 6, 2008; and 11 weeks from February 2 to April 19, 2009.
