They're number 1 (at least this week)

As I mentioned in my last post, I'd make my picks for the winners in this week's tournaments, and on the men's side (I hope this isn't seen as too much of a copout), but I'm picking the top seeds Novak Djokovic, Nikolay Davydenko and James Blake to come through in Vienna, Moscow and Stockholm, respectively. So it doesn't seem so much like I'm just going with the favorites, I'll pick their final-round opponents: Djokovic over Fernando Gonzalez; Davydenko over Paul-Henri Mathieu and Blake over Tommy Haas (even though I'm sure for Blake, he'd trade this one for that U.S. Open fourth-rounder.)

For the women, I'm going for a Williams sister weekend: Serena in Moscow and Venus in Bangkok.
