Dinara Safina moved back to the top of the world rankings on Monday, and insisted she has given up worrying about her critics who are adamant that the Russian is unworthy of being world number one.

Still without a Grand Slam title, the Russian deposed 11-time major winner Serena Williams to begin her 26th week on top of the standings in 2009.

“I don't care anymore. They can say whatever they want,” said the 23-year-old ahead of the season-ending WTA Championships, which start here on Tuesday.

“I have been in three Grand Slam finals and I've been in two semis. It's there. Last year I was winning every tournament and they were asking me why I'm not No 1.

“This year I became No 1, there is no Grand Slam. Every day is going to be something. It's not that I don't want to win a Grand Slam. But I guess I need to work a little bit more, improve some things, to make me stronger to deal with this,” she added.
