WORLD’S TOP TWO TEAMS SQUARE OFF FOR SONY ERICSSON OPEN DOUBLES TITLE
The defending champions and world No.1s will put their honor on the line against the clear-cut hottest team of the season
on Sunday afternoon, as the women’s doubles final takes the court at the $3.45-million Sony Ericsson Open.

Lisa Raymond and Samantha Stosur joined forces in July 2005, and in July 2006 became the co-world No.1s in doubles.
The top seeds and 2006 winners at the Sony Ericsson Open they haven’t ceded a set in making the championship round,
including a straight set semifinal win over one of 2007’s most dangerous teams, Chan Yung-Jan and Chuang Chia-Jung,
who were shut out of a final for the very first time in their seven career Sony Ericsson WTA Tour doubles draws as a team.

Cara Black and Liezel Huber have played together on and off over the last several years, winning one title in 2001 and two
in 2005 (including Roland Garros), but are having their best run in 2007, winning 22 consecutive matches coming into this
final (winning titles at the Australian Open, Paris [Indoors], Antwerp and Dubai). The No.2-seeded African tandem has had
a much more difficult path in reaching the final than Raymond and Stosur, however; it pulled off match tie-break victories
in its first two matches of the fortnight, then survived tough straight set battles in the quarterfinals and semifinals.

Black and Huber won the only prior encounter between these two teams, 64 46 62, in the Australian Open semis earlier
this season. They were in fact leading 64 41 before dropping the second set, but regrouped nicely for a three set victory.

FINAL FACTS
    •     This is a near-rematch of last year’s final, where Raymond and Stosur beat Huber and Martina Navratilova, 64 75
    •     Raymond is No.11 on the all-time list of Tour doubles title winners, with 62 (No.10 is Larisa Neiland, who has 66);
          Black is No.21 on the same list, with 31 (No.20 is Chris Evert, who has 32; a title would tie her with the American)
    •     Raymond could notch her 600th career Tour doubles match victory in this final (she is currently 599-197)
    •     Stosur celebrated her 22nd birthday just this past Friday, March 30, 2007
    •     A title here would make Huber the third African in Tour history to cross the $2-million mark in career prize money,
          following fellow South African Coetzer (who won nearly $6-million) and partner Black (who has nearly $4-million)

TOUR TITANS CLASH FOR SONY ERICSSON OPEN TITLE
They've both held the world No.1 ranking and won multiple Grand Slam singles titles, but Serena Williams and Justine
Henin own vastly different records at the Sony Ericsson Open. While Williams, a three-time former champion here, is
contesting her fifth Sony Ericsson Open final, Henin had never advanced beyond the quarterfinals in five previous
attempts. Nonetheless, having survived a third-round scare against Virginie Razzano (she trailed the Frenchwoman 5-1 in
the third set), the free-swinging Belgian has grown in confidence and is poised to take her third consecutive title this year.

Having lost in their first events of 2007, both Williams and Henin have remained unbeaten thereafter. Williams, a
quarterfinalist in her comeback event in Hobart, stunned the tennis world with a title run at the Australian Open and is
playing her first event since then. Henin, who missed the Australian swing for personal reasons, made her 2007 debut at
the Paris Indoors, falling in the semifinals to Lucie Safarova. However, she swept all before her in the Middle East, winning
the Dubai and Doha titles, and with five match wins in Miami, holds the season's best win streak at 13 matches.

Head-to-head, Williams holds the advantage – 5-3 lifetime and 2-0 on hard courts. However, Henin has won two of their
last three meetings and furthermore, their most recent meeting outdoors on a hard court was actually their first, in the
fourth round of the 2001 US Open. Their last meeting took place in the 2003 Wimbledon semifinals, a match won by
eventual champion Williams, 63 62.

RANKING PROJECTIONS
    •   With Maria Sharapova losing in the fourth round Tuesday and a first-ever Miami finals berth for herself, Justine
        Henin will hold on to the No.1 Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Singles Ranking when the next list is released Monday,
        April 2; in order for Sharapova to regain the top spot she lost to Henin on March 19, the Russian had to reach the
        final at the very least; on Monday, Henin will commence her 59th career week at No.1 (seventh all-time);
    •   By reaching the final, Serena Williams will rise from No.18 to No.12, while a title would result in a No.11 ranking;
        Williams was last ranked in the Top 10 in September 2005.

FINAL FACTS
    •   The women with the two longest win streaks of 2007 will go head-to-head in the final; as mentioned above,
        Henin carries a Tour-best 13-match unbeaten streak into the championship match after titles in Dubai and Doha,
        while Williams, appearing for the first time since her Australian Open triumph, has won her last 12 matches;
    •   Williams is aiming to become the third consecutive non-Top 10 women's singles champion in Miami after world
        No.38 Kim Clijsters in 2005 and No.14 Svetlana Kuznetsova in 2006; however, there has been only one other
        player ranked below No.9 in the 22-year-old history of the tournament – No.11 Venus Williams in 1998;
    •   Williams is contesting her 18th match against a reigning world No.1; in her previous 17 encounters, the American
        is 9-8: 5-6 vs. Martina Hingis, 2-0 vs. Jennifer Capriati, 1-0 vs. Venus Williams, 1-1 vs. Lindsay Davenport and 0-
        1 vs. Amélie Mauresmo; her nine wins are equal-fifth all-time alongside Tracy Austin, Chris Evert and Venus
        Williams and behind Martina Navratilova (18), Lindsay Davenport (14), Steffi Graf (11) and Gabriela Sabatini (10).

SERENA IS SUPER IN MIAMI
With her semifinal victory over Shahar Peer, Serena Williams notched her 40th singles match win in Miami, becoming only
the third woman to have achieved the feat here. Here is a look at Top 10 singles match win leaders at the Sony Ericsson

GOING FOR THE MELBOURNE/MIAMI DOUBLE

year, but she is aiming to become only the second woman (after Steffi Graf) to have achieved the feat twice, as is

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NO.1!
Top-ranked doubles player Samantha Stosur will be hoping for a successful 23rd birthday Friday as she contests the
doubles semifinals with American Lisa Raymond. Stosur is the second Australian woman to hold the No.1 computer
doubles ranking, the other being veteran Rennae Stubbs. Raymond and Stosur, the defending champions in Miami, will
have their work cut out for them as they take on Chan Yung-Jan and Chuang Chia-Jung in a repeat of the Indian Wells
final. The Chinese Taipei duo has reached the final of all four prior events it has contested this season, winning the
Bangalore title and finishing runners-up at Pattaya City and the Australian Open, becoming the first Grand Slam finalists
from their country.

In the other doubles semifinal, No.2 seeds and reigning Australian Open champions Cara Black and Liezel Huber take on
the glamour wildcard pairing of Daniela Hantuchova and Martina Hingis, who are playing together for the very first time.

RANKING PROJECTIONS
     •    With Maria Sharapova losing in the fourth round Tuesday and a first-ever Miami semifinal berth for herself, Justine
          Henin will hold on to the No.1 Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Singles Ranking when the next list is released Monday,
          April 2; in order for Sharapova to regain the top spot she lost to Henin on March 19, the Russian had to reach the
          final at the very least; on Monday, Henin will commence her 59th career week at No.1 (seventh all-time);
     •    Semifinalist Anna Chakvetadze will return to her career-high No.10; should she reach the final she would rise to a
          best-ever No.9 while a title would see her rise to No.8; regardless, Chakvetadze's run in Miami will push another
          Russian out of the Top 10 – Elena Dementieva – for the first time since September 2003;
     •    Shahar Peer could reach No.11 with a title, which would better the all-time Israeli record of No.15 jointly held by
          her and the soon-to-retire Anna Smashnova; a semifinal berth sees Peer reach No.14, but should Serena
          Williams beat her in the semifinals, the American would overtake her; ironically, it was Williams who prevented
          Peer from breaking the Israeli record at the Australian Open – with Williams winning the title, Peer rose to No.15;
     •    By reaching the semifinals, Serena Williams will break back into the Top 15 at No.15; a runner-up finish would
          see her rise to No.12 while a title would result in a No.11 ranking; Williams was last ranked in the Top 10 in
          September 2005.

SEMIFINAL FACTS
     •    Shahar Peer advances to her career-first Tier I semifinal; she is a two-time quarterfinalist at Tier I level, at 2006
          Montréal and last fortnight at Indian Wells;
     •    World No.1 Justine Henin is through to her first-ever semifinal in Miami; winner of eight career Tier I titles, the
          Belgian's most recent victory at this level (excluding Grand Slams) was 2005 Berlin;
     •    Anna Chakvetadze is through to her third career Tier I semifinal, having won Moscow last October and reached
          the quarterfinals at Montréal, also in 2006;
     •    Three-time former champion Serena Williams, the only woman to have previously reached Miami semifinals, is
          contesting her 14th career Tier I semifinal, having been a seven-time winner at this level (excluding Grand Slams).

First up in the afternoon session is current world No.1 Justine Henin taking on Russian rising star Anna Chakvetadze.
Although she has won five Grand Slams and is currently spending her 58th non-consecutive week at the top of the
rankings, Henin is playing the Miami semifinals for the first time. Chakvetadze is in the same situation at this event. The
two have played once before, with the Belgian winning, 62 63, in the third round of Wimbledon last year. But the Russian
is a much more dangerous player now than she was then; she has had seven Top 10 wins since that match, and also
made her own Top 10 debut in February.

Playing the second match at night will be Serena Williams and Shahar Peer. It's the third time this rivalry will take the court
with Williams prevailing in two sets at this tournament two years ago, and in three hard-fought sets, 36 62 86, in the
quarterfinals of the Australian Open in January. Peer gave Williams all sorts of problems in that match down under, rallying
back from a 4-1 hole in the last set and even having a chance to serve it out before eventually falling. She has not had an
easy trail to her first Tier I semifinal, having to get by defending champion and world No.3 Svetlana Kuznetsova in the

RANKING PROJECTIONS / QUARTERFINAL FACTS
     •    With Maria Sharapova losing in the fourth round Tuesday and a first-ever Miami semifinal berth for herself, Justine
          Henin will hold on to the No.1 Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Singles Ranking when the next list is released Monday,
          April 2; in order for Sharapova to regain the top spot she lost to Henin on March 19, the Russian had to reach the
          final at the very least; on Monday, Henin will commence her 59th career week at No.1 (seventh all-time);
     •    Semifinalist Anna Chakvetadze will return to her career-high No.10; should she reach the final she would rise to a
          best-ever No.9 while a title could see her rise to No.8 (but if Nicole Vaidisova reaches the final the Russian will be
          No.9); regardless, Chakvetadze's run in Miami will push another Russian out of the Top 10 – Elena Dementieva –
          for the first time since September 2003;
     •    Nicole Vaidisova, currently ranked at a career-high No.8, could go as high as No.6 with a title run; she would be
          No.7 with a runner-up finish;
     •    Shahar Peer could reach No.11 with a title, which would better the all-time Israeli record of No.15 jointly held by
          her and the soon-to-retire Anna Smashnova; a semifinal berth could see Peer reach No.14, but should Serena
          Williams beat her in the semifinals, the American would overtake her; ironically, it was Williams who prevented
          Peer from breaking the Israeli record at the Australian Open – with Williams winning the title, Peer rose to No.15;
     •    Serena Williams needs to reach the semifinals to break back into the Top 15 (at No.15); a runner-up finish would
          see her rise to No.12 while a title would result in a No.11 ranking; Williams was last ranked in the Top 10 in
          September 2005
     •    Should Tathiana Garbin reach the final or win the title, she will make her Top 20 debut at No.19; by reaching the
          quarterfinals she is projected to rise one spot to No.24, while a semifinal finish would see her rise to No.21,
          overtaking countrywoman Francesca Schiavone who has been the Italian No.1 since Silvia Farina Elia
          relinquished that honor in 2005;
     •    Two of the eight quarterfinalists in Miami passed the $1-million mark in career earnings; by virtue of reaching the
          fourth round here, Shahar Peer and Li Na became the 179th and 180th women to join the 'Million Dollar Club';
          they could also be joined by Li's compatriot Yan Zi, who will pass the milestone if she reaches the Sony Ericsson
          Open doubles final with regular partner Zheng Jie.

MARIA vs. SERENA RIVALRY – CHAPTER 6
Their first meeting took place at this very event three years ago, and now the sixth installment of the Maria Sharapova vs.
Serena Williams will take place at the Sony Ericsson Open on Tuesday. Having beaten Serena's older sister Venus in a
three-set thriller on Sunday, Sharapova is aiming to become the sixth woman to beat both Williams sisters in the same
tournament. Below is a list of the first five:
PLAYER                                TOURNAMENT                          VICTORY #1                              VICTORY #2

SHARAPOVA, HENIN CONTINUE TO WRESTLE FOR TOP RANKING
It might be difficult, but Maria Sharapova does have a chance to reclaim the No.1 singles ranking she lost one week ago.
If the woman who took it back from her, Justine Henin, loses to Nadia Petrova in Tuesday's quarterfinal action, a Sony
Ericsson Open title would grant Sharapova a return to the top spot. Henin spent the first four weeks of this season as the
world No.1 player before surrendering it for seven weeks to Sharapova. She reclaimed it last Monday, after Sharapova
failed to defend her Indian Wells title. Now, Henin spends her 57th and 58th non-consecutive weeks at No.1, moving her
past Serena Williams and into seventh place (of 15) on the all-time list of No.1s, kept since the 1975 inception of
computer rankings on the Tour.

FIRST SEVEN QUARTERFINAL BERTHS UP FOR GRABS MONDAY AT SONY ERICSSON OPEN
Seven round of 16 match-ups are included in a packed Monday schedule at the $3.45-million, Tier I Sony Ericsson Open.
The eighth spot in the final eight will be determined Tuesday; Serena Williams and Lucie Safarova’s third round encounter
was set to go Sunday night but after the skies opened it was pushed to today’s schedule, with the winner to take on the
top-seeded Maria Sharapova tomorrow for the quarterfinal berth in the incredibly packed top section of the singles draw.

FINAL FACTS
    •   Justine Henin’s come-from-behind third round win over Virginie Razzano was her 10th win in a row, making her
        the new win streak leader for the 2007 season; she was 4-0 in Dubai, 4-0 in Doha and now 2-0 at this event;
        Anna Chakvetadze, Jelena Jankovic and Kim Clijsters were tied for longest win streak previously (nine in a row)
    •   By virtue of reaching the fourth round, Li Na and Shahar Peer will cross the $1-million mark in career earnings;
        China will have its second career millionaire in Li, after Zheng Jie crossed the barrier last season; Israel will have
        its second career millionaire as well after Anna Smashnova, who currently has over $2-million in career earnings
    •   Vera Zvonareva will have a shot at taking out two different world No.1s in consecutive events; at Indian Wells last
        week she took out Maria Sharapova in the fourth round, and now she will face Justine Henin in the same round;
        on Monday, March 19 (after Indian Wells), Sharapova and Henin exchanged the world No.1 singles ranking
    •   The first two Top 8 seeds fell Sunday, with Martina Hingis losing to Agnieszka Radwanska and Jelena Jankovic
        losing to Mara Santangelo; Radwanska notched her second Top 10 victory, while Santangelo grabbed her first
    •   Just one of the 12 qualifiers who began in Miami remains; Vera Dushevina has never gone this far here, but has
        won five matches to get here, two in qualifying and three main draw (including beating No.21 seed Marion Bartoli)
    •   Two of the five former champions who were in the field this year were eliminated on Sunday, as Venus Williams
        (1998/1999/2001) fell to Maria Sharapova and Martina Hingis (1997/2000) was ousted by Agnieszka Radwanska;
        Serena Williams (2002/2003/2004), Kim Clijsters (2005) and Svetlana Kuznetsova (2006) are still remaining

SHARAPOVA, HENIN CONTINUE TO WRESTLE FOR TOP RANKING
It might be difficult, but Maria Sharapova does have a chance to reclaim the No.1 singles ranking she lost one week ago.
If the woman who took it back from her, Justine Henin, loses by the quarterfinals, then a Sony Ericsson Open title would
grant Sharapova a return to the top spot. Henin spent the first four weeks of this season as the world No.1 player before
surrendering it for seven weeks to Sharapova. She reclaimed it last Monday, after Sharapova failed to defend her Indian
Wells title. Now, Henin spends her 57th and 58th non-consecutive weeks at No.1, moving her past Serena Williams and
into seventh place (of 15) on the all-time list of No.1s, kept since the 1975 inception of computer rankings on the Tour.

HINGIS CLOSES IN ON $20-MILLION CLUB
Despite her third round loss at the Sony Ericsson Open on Sunday, on April 2, 2007, Martina Hingis will become just the
fourth woman in Sony Ericsson WTA Tour history to surpass the $20-million milestone in career prize money earnings.
She came into the tournament just $2,175 short and her singles third round showing alone would bring her over $18,000.
What’s more is that she is competing in the doubles draw as well, as a wild card with Slovakian star Daniela Hantuchova.
The following is a chart detailing the Top 5 prize money earners of all time, as of the end of last week’s Pacific Life Open.

32 BECOMES 16 ON MIDDLE SUNDAY IN MIAMI
All 16 third round matches will take to the courts in Miami on Sunday as the stars of the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour chase
second week berths at the $3.45-million, Tier I event. Highlighting the schedule is the blockbuster match-up between an
unseeded Venus Williams and top-seeded Maria Sharapova; based on form at this event specifically, Williams should be
the favorite (she is a three-time champion here), but Sharapova has won two of their three previous encounters, and has
also been a runner-up here the last two years. Another three-time champion, Serena Williams, hopes to meet the winner
of the aforementioned match involving her sister in the next round, but will have to survive 2007 standout Lucie Safarova.
The Czech youngster has beaten four Top 10 players this year, and in her only prior meeting with the American, she was
able to push her to a third set tie-break this January in the second round of Hobart; Williams would lose her next match..

Other marquee players in action on Sunday include world No.1 Justine Henin, defending champion Svetlana Kuznetsova,
2005 champion Kim Clijsters, 1997 and 2000 champion Martina Hingis and Indian Wells champion Daniela Hantuchova.

HENIN EYES SEASON-BEST 10 WINS IN A ROW
During the Australian season, three players strung together nine match wins in a row, a season-best at the time. Now, an
in-form Justine Henin is one win away from breaking a four-way tie with that trio as she seeks her 10th match win in a row
on Sunday against Virginie Razzano. The No.2-seeded Belgian is 3-1 lifetime against the unseeded Frenchwoman but 3-0
in Sony Ericsson WTA Tour matches. The following is a chart detailing the four-way winning streak tie of 2007.

                  PLAYER                 WINS      DETAIL
                  Jelena Jankovic        9         Won Auckland (5-0) then finished runner-up at Sydney (4-1)
                  Anna Chakvetadze       9         Won Hobart (5-0) then reached QF at Australian Open (4-1)
                  Kim Clijsters          9         Won Sydney (4-0) then reached SF at Australian Open (5-1)
                  Justine Henin          9**       Won Dubai (4-0) and Doha (4-0) and now into 3r at Miami (1-0)**

HINGIS CLOSES IN ON $20-MILLION CLUB
It’s official - regardless of her performance from hereon in at the Sony Ericsson Open, on April 2, 2007, Martina Hingis will
become just the fourth woman in Sony Ericsson WTA Tour history to surpass the $20-million mark in career prize money
earnings. She came into the tournament just $2,175 short, and her singles third round appearance alone would bring her
over $18,000. What’s more is that she is competing in the doubles draw as well with Slovakian star Daniela Hantuchova.
The following is a chart detailing the Top 5 prize money earners of all time, as of the end of last week’s Pacific Life Open.

                                    PLAYER                                OFFICIAL PRIZE MONEY

A LOOK AT THE FIELD
An absolutely packed field heads south this fortnight for the Sony Ericsson Open, arguably the biggest event on the Sony
Ericsson WTA Tour calendar outside of the Grand Slams. Maria Sharapova is the top seed at the $3.45-million, Tier I
tournament. The Russian teenager hasn't won a title so far this season, but has still shown solid form, her results
including reaching her third career major final at the Australian Open. And she has also been impressive on the hardcourts
of the Tennis Center at Crandon Park, notching back-to-back runner-up finishes the last two years. After a first round bye,
she will open against either doubles breakout star Chan Yung-Jan or Spain's Nuria Llagostera Vives.

The world's current No.1 player, Justine Henin, is seeded No.2 this fortnight. With Sharapova's early loss at Indian Wells,
Henin regained her top ranking this week, but not in time for the seedings here. Regardless, she can't be overlooked as a
top threat. The Belgian is coming off back-to-back title runs in the Middle East at Dubai and Doha, and despite never
going truly deep into the Miami draw (her best showings have been quarterfinal finishes, in 2003 and 2005), she seems to
be playing some of her best tennis in recent weeks. She also begins her campaign in the second round against American
teenager Vania King or China's Sun Tiantian.

One year ago, Svetlana Kuznetsova announced her return to the game's elite with a title run at this tournament, and she
certainly hasn't slowed down since. She finished 2006 tied for first among match win leaders and, among other results,
reached her second major final at Roland Garros. She had a rocky start to 2007 but in the last few weeks has recaptured
some of her best form, reaching finals at Doha and Indian Wells. And this week she rose to No.3 in the world on the
rankings, making her just the fourth Russian ever to crack that elite. She'll begin her title defense after a first round bye
against either Japan's Aiko Nakamura or a qualifier.

Playing for the last time in Miami will be another one of the tournament's former champions, Kim Clijsters. Two years ago,
the Belgian followed up an Indian Wells victory with a victory here, reasserting herself as one of the world's top players
after a lengthy left wrist injury lay-off. She has had a stellar yet selective beginning to the season; she has played only
three events but has put in excellent performances at all three, winning at Sydney, reaching the Australian Open semifinals
and reaching another final in front of her home crowd in Antwerp. Seeded No.4 at this year's event, she will begin her
quest in the second round against either Japan's Akiko Morigami or Canadian wild card Aleksandra Wozniak.

Whereas Russians Sharapova and Kuznetsova are defending finalists (with Kuznetsova beating her compatriot in straight
sets, 64 63, for the title last year), the two Belgian stars both dropped their opening matches last year to a pair of
American players, Henin to former Top 15 player Meghann Shaughnessy in straight sets and Clijsters to veteran Jill
Craybas in a dramatic three-setter.

Perhaps some of the biggest threats to the title aren't necessarily among the Top 4 seeds; three players with incredible
pasts at this Tier I tournament are a trio of its former champions, namely No.5 seed Martina Hingis, No.13 seed Serena
Williams and an unseeded Venus Williams. Hingis is 28-6 lifetime here, with titles in 1997 and 2000; the younger Williams
is 35-5 here, with titles in 2002, 2003 and 2004; and the elder Williams is 33-5 here, with titles in 1998, 1999 and 2001.
So between them they are 96-16 at this event and won all eight titles between 1997 and 2004.

Unfortunately for the three former world No.1s, they are all in the same half of the draw. And even more unfortunately, the
Williams sisters are in the same eighth of it along with Sharapova; Venus could face the Russian top seed in the third
round, with the winner of that potentially facing Serena in the fourth round. Hingis looms as a semifinal opponent, though
she would face defending champ Kuznetsova in the quarterfinals, should the seedings hold.

One of the more prominent threats among the seeded contingent is Daniela Hantuchova, who comes in fresh off a dream
run to her second career title at Indian Wells. The No.16-seeded Slovak will have to overcome a dismal lifetime record at
the Tier I event, however; she is 2-7 in seven career appearances here, never going beyond the third round. She is in
Henin's section of the draw.

WEEKS AT No.1
The see-sawing struggle for top billing takes another dramatic turn this week, as Belgian Justine Henin reclaims the world
No.1 singles ranking from Maria Sharapova. Sharapova has spent the last seven weeks at the top but she fell too early in
her Indian Wells title defense, and now Henin passes her Russian rival on this week's rankings list.

Henin first ascended to No.1 on October 20, 2003; although she became the first player in Sony Ericsson WTA Tour
history to lose her new top rank a week later, she returned to No.1 on November 10, 2003, holding it until September 12,
2004, after the US Open. That was 45 weeks in total. She re-ascended on November 13, 2006, after winning the season-
ending Sony Ericsson Championships, holding it for 11 more weeks to bring her total to 56. She then lost it to Sharapova
after the Australian Open.

During this Miami fortnight, Henin will rack up her 57th and 58th non-consecutive weeks at No.1, passing Serena Williams
for No.7 on the all-time list. She has a ways to go to catch up with No.6 on the list, Lindsay Davenport, who spent a total
of 98 weeks on top. But Henin is in a good position to extend her lead this coming fortnight; last year at the Sony
Ericsson Open she lost her opening match, while Sharapova made it all the way to the final, finishing runner-up.

This chart lists the 15 women to have held No.1 in order of longevity, all numbers dating from November 3, 1975, when
the computer rankings began, through the weeks of March 19 and 26, 2007:
