Game Point is Busted Racquet's roundup of facts, figures and links from around the web.

Love -- Serena Williams looked relaxed this week while sunbathing with a friend in Miami. In other Serena news, she jumped back into the top 10, went to a Miami Heat game with Chris Bosh's fiancee, unsuccessfully rooted for Rafael Nadal, passed 2 million followers on Twitter and got a paper cut.

15 -- Mardy Fish moved past Andy Roddick to become the top-ranked player in the United States. Fish moved up four spots to No. 11 courtesy of his semifinal run in Miami, while Roddick dropped six spots to No. 14 after losing all the points from his win in the tournament last year.

30 -- Speaking of American tennis, Ryan Sweeting defeated the struggling Sam Querrey at the US Clay Court Championships in Houston. Querrey admitted that he "doesn't feel comfortable on clay" after the match and that it might take a couple of weeks to get used to the surface. He better hurry, the clay court season doesn't last that long.

40 -- Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe will play for the first time in a decade this summer when they face-off in a World Team Tennis match in Manhattan.

Game -- For those quick to put dirt on Roger Federer's tennis grave, Sports Illustrated's Jon Wertheim has an interesting fact in this week's mailbag column (always a must-read): "Since last July, Federer's record against players other than Murray/Djokovic/Nadal, is 52-1."
