....However I would like to ask what about another sibilant Arabic owns, that is, the Sad (emphatic /s/)? It is tempting to say that it corresponds with tzade in the numeric order (i.e. 90) but, in most cases, phonetically speaking, tzade compares best with the emphatics Dad and Zha rather than with Sad. 

Can I have an answer to this?

Not quite. Compare Arab. Srkh, Sdq, Sada, Saghir  for example  -- where the "S" stands for  Sad  -- with the Heb. Tsarah(.), Tsadaq, Tsad, Tsair -- where" Ts"  stands for Tsade.
