VENUS will be in the top ten by May 10

VENUS WILLIAMS, after winning her second straight title in Warsaw, is currently ranked #11 on the WTA tour and she should make the top ten without even winning the Berlin event this week.



However, I hope the Goddess of Tennis can make the German Open her third staight title, thus moving her up as high as #8 in the weekly rankings.

before rankings is not a big issue on the Williams Camp; at least now, they believe in rankings and come to appreciate it more.

Correction dear, it wasn't a big deal as pertaining to ability.
Venus may have been ranked 17th but everyone knew that ranking
didn't reflect her ability and what she was capable of.
It reflected her being out for six months and not being
in form at the start of this season.

It isn't a big deal but it is nice to see it begin to reflect who and what Venus
is as a tennis player. As for now, she may be ranked 11th but
the way she is playing would lead any layman to believe
she is well inside the top ten.

No one in the "Williams Camp" ever had a disbelief in rankings.
The order of importance for the Williams is probably the same as that of all reasonable elite players.

1. To play well
2. Win Tier titles
3. Win Slam titles
4. Win Olympic titles
5. Gain ranking points

Bye.

Whats with this bullshit generalization. I don't have to agree with (say) Teerex just because he's a Venus-fan too.

I think most top players would put winning titles ahead of playing well.

Would you rather play well and reach a semi, or play badly and win the tourney anyway?

She simply deserves her ranking right now and she's indeed playing like a top tenner.

If you were even slightly intelligent, you would probably know that most reasonable players would feel themselves very fortunate to have played in all of the Grand Slam finals, even if they lost to their sibling.

I really don't have to be smart enough to know the fact that Venus whom you say the greatest player of all time was indeed slamless; it's just unacceptable.

================================

Well, I have looked through this thread and nowhere did I ever state that VENUS was the greatest player of all time.

But, I am responding to a delusional moron, so what else can I expect.
