She's number 1

Kim Clijsters became the number 1 player in the world today when she defeated Jelena Dokic 6-3, 6-0 in Paris. It has been 256 weeks since the last time that Clijsters held the number 1 spot. She will play 3rd seed Kaia Kanepi in the semifinals of the Open GDF SUEZ. The other semifinal will be played between 4th seed Petra Kvitova and Bethanie Mattek-Sands, who upset 6th seed Andrea Petkovic today.

Meanwhile, in Pattaya City, top seed and two-time defending champion Vera Zvonareva has made it to the semfinals, and will play 4th seed Daniela Hantuchova. The other semifinal match will be played between doubles partners Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci, who are seeded 8th and 5th, respectively. Vinci defeated 2nd seed Ana Ivanovic in the quarterfinals.

Oh no! What will commentators do if they can't whine about having a #1 without a major? Ha! :D

Congrats Kim!

Oh she now has a record. The first mother to be No.1. They took pains to point out that Goolagong was not a mother when she was No.1. And oh yes Alec Baldwin likes her.

Can someone please get this woman pregnant again and let her go somewhere and raise her children.
