MIAMI, FL, USA - The good news keeps coming this fortnight for the Williams sisters, who are both through to the quarterfinals at the Sony Ericsson Open.

By virtue of her performance here, Serena is assured of returning to the Top 10 on the new rankings for the first time since May. And the only player she trails amongst active players for most weeks spent in the Top 10 is none other than Venus. Here is a list of the 10 active players atop that list:

Player Weeks In Top 10 (Through End Of Miami)
Venus Williams 554
Serena Williams 516
Kim Clijsters 346
Maria Sharapova 291
Svetlana Kuznetsova 284
Jelena Jankovic 226
Vera Zvonareva 166
Nadia Petrova 156
Caroline Wozniacki 150
Kimiko Date-Krumm 149

Notes: Wozniacki is the only player on this list who once she broke into the Top 10, has never fallen out ... World No.1 Victoria Azarenka is spending her 137th career week in the Top 10.
