On the front page of Maria's official site, it goes sth like this:




Maria has ended the year No.4.  This is Maria's highest year end ranking since 2006.  Highlights of Maria's year includes winning Rome and Cincinnati, reaching the final at Wimbledon and Miami and the semis at Roland Garros and Miami.


Here are Maria's previous year end rankings:

2010: 18
2009: 14
2008: 9
2007: 5
2006: 2
2005: 4
2004: 4
2003: 32
2002: 186


It's so sad that Maria can't end the year with World No. 2! It's so close!


Another sad thing is that there will not be any WTA matches until this year ends.


For Maria's next tournament, is it going to be Hong Kong Classic? Can't wait to see her !


P.S. Recently there are some users sent me emails, wrongly think that I'm Maria, just want everyone know that I'M NOT MARIA! I'm just a fan of Maria from HK.

She might be back to no4 but the difference is actually minimal, non existent. And she has a lot of points to make up for in the beggining of the season so no1 is within reach. All she needs is to work hard, stay fit and be positive.

Three times. Per WTA:


2005 - Another Top 5 season; on August 22, became 16th player (first Russian) to rise to No.1 (spent a total of seven weeks at No.1, one initially before Davenport regained it then six more from September 12 to October 23...


2006 - could have had No.1 at year's end (in first three-way race for year-end No.1 at WTA Championships, w/Henin and Mauresmo)


2007 - spent first three weeks of season at No.2 and rose to No.1 after Australian Open (spending seven weeks at No.1 to bring her career total to 14 weeks; lost it to Henin on March 19).


2008 - returned to No.1 on May 19, the week after Henin retired and took name off rankings (held it for three weeks, bringing career tally to 17 weeks)
