Some Tennis News

Some tennis news catch-ups:

After breaking into the top 10 a few months ago, Victoria Azarenka of Belarus and wins the biggest tournament of her career by beating world no. 1 Serena Williams at the SonyEricsson Open in Miami.


After announcing that they're having a baby this summer, Roger Federer and his longtime girlfriend Mirka Vavrinec got married last week in Switzerland, just before Fed flew in to Monaco for the Monte Carlo Masters.


Even before that, Roger did this:


Awesome or what?


And apparently, Andy Roddick has also gotten married to his fiancee, swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker.

Even more bad news for Serena, she will lose her top ranking to Dinara Safina by next week, after Serena lost in the first round in Marbella, Spain and pulling out of the Family Circle Cup in Charleston. Dinara will head into the clay court season as the #1 player in the world while attempting to win her first Grand Slam title on her favorite surface and prove that she deserves the top ranking as much as Jelena Jankovic did last year. Dinara and her older brother Marat Safin will also be the first brother-sister players to ever be ranked #1 in the world. Marat held the #1 ranking before the Federer era.

The French Open starts in a little over a month.
