I am not surprised about Serena but the second was Nadia Petrova. I guess I don't get to see her that much. Interesting that Safarova was in the top 10 also. Wasn't surprised about Stosur after seeing her play a couple of times. I wish the WTA would give more match fact statistics. The ATP relates stats about service games, return games, etc. I don't see a place for many of these things on the WTA site. I know that some things are available from Notes and Netcords but still not everything I would like to know. I just feel that the WTA doesn't treat the women as athletes first sometimes.

I couldn't agree more, Sunny.

And yes, Nadia has always been a big server. I just wish she could get back to her 2006 form.
