Belgium's Kim Clijsters officially overtook Serena Williams for the top rankings in the WTA Tour ratings released today, ending the injured American's reign of the women's tennis world. Clijsters, who won a title on Sunday in Los Angeles, has 6,039 points to 5,995 for Wimbledon winner Williams, who will not defend her US Open crown after knee surgery. The remainder of the top seven remained in the same order with just one week remaining before final seedings are made for the US Open - the year's last Grand Slam tournament which opens in two weeks in New York.
