WTA ranking as of 20-Apr-2009

Dinara Safina is the new WTA #1 as Serena Williams could not defend her title in Charleston due to an injury. This is the first time Safina reaches #1 and she does without having won any Grand Slam title, as Jelena Jankovic did last year. Last week champion in Pontevedra Beach and this week runner-up in Charleston, young Danish Caroline Wozniacki climbs to #11 and is just 50 points away from breaking into Top-10. Great climb for surprising Charleston champion Sabine Lisicki, who gains 20 places from #63 to a career-high ranking at #43, while Barcelona champion Roberta Vinci moves from #61 to #52.
