5. Ana Ivanovic

6. Venus Williams (top photo, right)

7. Vera Zvonareva

8. Svetlana Kuznetsova

9. Maria Sharapova

10. Agnieszka Radwanska

Here are ten haikus in recognition of their achievement:

Radwanska the Pole
Made a million bucks
sweet herstory

Sharapova’s rank
Accurately reflects her
Limited progress

Kuznetsova please

Find a coach and stick with him

Or her, I don’t care

Vera’s tears erased
A year of brutal work
Back to the drawing-board

Venus Williams
Seems to have recommitted

To braids and tennis

Ms. Ivanovic seems caught

Between twin loves:

Modeling and tennis

Dementieva knows
That serving is not

The only way to win

Safina worked hard

For everything she’s achieved

Congrats little sis

Come clean Serena.

Were those an actress’ tears

Or real disappointment?

Heavy mascara
Can't drive Porsche with broken toe

Drama queen
’s on court
