Of all the past and present number ones.....
which of them, if any, do you think was actually the best player in the world at the time they got there or at some point during their reign as number one. Let's try and keep this as positive as possible and only put reasons why x deserved to be there as opposed to y sucks and should have never been there. As a side note, is there anyone you think should have been ranked number one that never was, so far has not been or at a time when someone else was ranked at the top spot. I don't think I forgot anyone but in case you need a reference of number ones:
Justine Henin Hardenne
Arantxa Sanchez Vicario
i say of the 13 the ones who deserved to be at some point during their reign was:
Martina Hingis (maybe not for as long as she was, especially into early 2000, but was more consistent over all, at all the events, not just the grandslams, than anyone else. Martina was winning or doing well on all surfaces, Lindsay can't say that)
Venus Williams (From Wimbledon 2000 until 2002 Wimbledon she was the best player in the world. She was a number one in the true sense that she was beating everyone on tour at the time. That's the only reason why I don't say Capriati should have been number one at this time. She could not beat Venus and a number one should be able to beat everyone. And plus in Jennifer's golden year venus won the same amount of slams, three more titles, and won all their meetings. Not to take anything away from Jennifer, but Venus gets the edge there.
