Serena Williams reclaims No.1 ranking

Serena WilliamsWorld No.2 Serena Williams is guaranteed to return to the top of the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour rankings, having defeated Ekatarina Makarova in the second round of the China Open.

Serena had one condition to fulfill in order to overtake Dinara Safina – to go further at the China Open than the Russian. It proved to be an easy task as Safina lost in the second round to No.226-ranked Zhang Shuai, who became the lowest-ranked player ever to defeat a world No.1.

Here’s you can watch an interview with Serena Williams after her 6-3 6-2 victory over Makarova.
