This is hilarious. Dinara Safina will be No.1 during the Sony Ericsson Championships, returning to the top spot after Serena Williams took it over this week.
Last year’s Sony Ericsson Championships points will come off the Monday of this year’s Sony Ericsson Championships points, which will make Safina 155 points ahead of Williams.
Having in mind all the pressure and criticism Safina had to face for not living up to the role of being the No.1 in the eyes of many, funnily, the Russian is now seen as being in an unfortunate situation. I love the following remarks made at tennis blog called Forty Deuce.

Aww. Poor Dina. All this after she worked so hard to not be number one. She really can’t catch a break.
Commentator TheSkinny said:
Now imagine, she ends the year No.1 *shock* That would guarantee for an off-season full of trash talking!
I like Dinara, but the off-season is too long and needs some spice!
