Hingis still top earner

Switzerland's top woman tennis player, Martina Hingis, may have lost her number one ranking in the world to Lindsay Davenport, but she is still at the top in the earnings table.

Figures released on Monday by the WTA Tour Rankings show Hingis has netted a total of $1.16 million since the start of the year. Her closest rival, Davenport, has earned $1.07 million.

Nevertheless, Hingis had to give up her number one world ranking on Monday after only one week, following her defeat at the German Open in Berlin at the weekend.

She lost in the semi-final to the former Wimbledon Champion, Spain's Conchita Martinez in straight sets, 7-5 6-4.
