Congratulations Martina, You Are Number One Again!

With Lucie Safarova (the current number one doubles player) pulling out of Wuhan, Martina Hingis will become number one on October 1st. A very nice 37th birthday present

Re: Congratulations Martina, You Are Number One Again!



Well-deserved

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Congratulations Martina, You Are Number One Again!

Wow!! This happened sooner than I thought.

So almost guaranteed YE #1? Almost no point to defend in Wuhan/Beijing, and only semifinal points from YEC.

Re: Congratulations Martina, You Are Number One Again!

Chingis team gotta have good results in the upcoming weeks, cause there's still Makarova/Vesnina chasing them.

Re: Congratulations Martina, You Are Number One Again!

99% chance that Hingis (with Chan) will finish the year ranked number one. Makarova/Vesnina would have to win Wuhan, Beijing, and either win Singapore or have a better result than Hingis/Chan to take the number one ranking.

I really hope that martina can finish year end number one. Even if it's joint with Chan. I don't think martina has finished year end number one before. And she has practically no points to defend until Indian wells so they could be number one for a while

Gosh I hope she continues to play next year!

IIRC she finished @#2 a few times, crazy to think that she has never finished as doubles #1.

Re: Congratulations Martina, You Are Number One Again!

Chan with first slam AND nº 1 would be pretty amazing too!

Re: Congratulations Martina, You Are Number One Again!

Congrats Martina
Sad that it happened in those conditions though, with Lucie having to team up with Babs and now dropping out of Wuhan and not being able to defend her points
