Serena ranks No. 1

Tuesday, July 9, 2002


Wimbledon champion Serena Williams officially moved up to No. 1 in the WTA Tour rankings Monday, the first time she's been ahead of older sister Venus.

The 20-year-old Serena is the 11th woman to lead the computer standings since they started in 1975, replacing Venus.

Serena has won the last two Grand Slam tournaments, beating her sister in the finals of Wimbledon on Saturday and the French Open last month.
