Caroline Wozniacki ensured that she retained her No. 1 ranking for the year by winning her first match at the WTA Doha championships.
She beat Francesca Schiavone 3-6, 6-1, 6-1 in three sets.
Vera Zvonareva stays No. 2 behind the sizzling Dane.
It would have been interesting if Zvonareva had come through to be ranked No.1.
I wonder how many instances are there of two different players ranked No. 1 in the same year without ever having won a Grand Slam?
Any bets as to which of these two will clinch a Slam first?
Samantha Stosur lost to Elena Dementieva 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (4) in her third round robin match.
But her earlier victories against Wozniacki and Schiavone have propelled her into the semi-finals.
Clijsters, too, has made her way to the semis triumphing over Victoria Azarenka 6-4, 5-7, 6-1.
