Re: Ranking Watch

If Venus does a good performance in Miami/win and Sveta and Caro do bad, she could get back up to #3. I'd love for Venus to get back to #1 for another 11 weeks Which could happen in the second half of the season, but I am not expecting much.

i still cant believe that Safina
having not played for half a year, is still up there at number 2...

Kuzzie lost early...-check
Safina not gaining points - check
Wozniacki...almost...

"it's only a matter of time"...and Vee is enjoying the moment...

Re: Ranking Watch

I wont settle for anything less than number 1. Till she gets there, she is still on a journey to her rightful spot. Number 2 just won't do.

Dina's big points are in the clay season, she did shit until clay outside AO last year. She has Final of Stuttgart, Wins in Madrid and Rome and Final of RG. If she doesn't defend those clay points she will go down bad.

Re: Ranking Watch

well Kuzzie needs to definitely be booted out of the top 3 the way she's playing. Dinara is injured, so I'll cut her some slack. Caroline, a slight fav, but she needs to be pushed right out of the top four, too. Unlike others, I think she deserves a place in the top 10 though.

Venus should be in the top 4 based on the year thus far. She is number two spot based on the race for the championship.

We all know that she is #1, but does she?

Current points from TBE thread
Serena - 8645
Safina - 6230
Sveta - 5930
Caro - 5815
Venus - 5626

Well Kuzzy has a Miami SF to defend, Caro has QF to defend (same for IW), Dinara has R3 to defend. Kuzzy and Safina then have a butt load to defend during the clay. Caro has about 700 to defend during the clay (depends which are in her best 16). Venus is bound to get back to #2. If Venus wins Miami, she could be #2 as long as Caro and Sveta don't do better then their results.

Re: Ranking Watch

It's a shame about Dinara, her back injury has been lingering since last year and she was playing so well at the AO until it started hurting again.

The fact she may not be able to defend her clay court points, is just saddening even for a non fan.

As a Venus fan, I hated how her ranking would plummet because she didn't play enough, as opposed to actually playing and losing points; similar to what Dinara may go through.

The good thing about Dinara IMHO, is that even when she played bad she still had a tendency to win against players not named Williams. I mean, look at the recent results of Kim, Sharapova, Justine etc.

Hope this injury doesn't affect Dinara too much, that she isn't her old self when she finally hits the courts.

Besides 160 points from the French Open, Caro has 1300 points from the clay season in her best 16: 280 points from Ponte Vedra Beach, 320 from Charleston, and 700 from Madrid.

Re: Ranking Watch

Indian Wells has shaped up pretty nicely. I hope Miami is as kind to Venus and she can make a forward move in the rankings!
