FIDE Ratings

Latest Rating list released by FIDE shows the rankings as below. My comments are at the right.

Men
Anand - World No.2 (stable at the top. but only a few more playing years left)
Harikrishna - World No.31 (growing strongly. has to keep the momentum going)
Sasikiran - World No.40 (calm player. would love to see him as a world champ)

Women
Humpy - World No.4 (we need to encourage her continually as judit is faar above)
Vijayalakshmi - World No.12 (Will be great if she can break into the top 5)

Thanks Senthil

Hari is now ranked above Karpov and Kasimdzhanov, the former and
current world champions respectively.

Without GAIL's help, it surely would have taken a longer time for him to make such a leap.
