It's Lorena Ochoa's world ... almost 

March, 29, 2007
To borrow a catchphrase from one of the old SportsCenter anchors (was it Kilborn or Olbermann?): It's Lorena Ochoa's world. Everyone else is just living in it.

Or, if you prefer: Everyone else is just renting space. Everyone, that is, except for Annika Sorenstam, who remains the world's No. 1-ranked player ... though maybe not for much longer.

That's because if Ochoa wins this week's Kraft Nabisco Championship -- no matter what Sorenstam does -- she'll vault into the top spot that Annika has occupied ever since the rankings were first introduced last year. It's a position that Ochoa has openly stated she'd like to achieve (hey, who wouldn't want to be ranked No. 1, right?), though after Thursday's first round she said it's hardly her main focus.
