Number One scenarios - Amelie no.1 unless Lindsay wins it

Then it's Lindsay.

As long as there are no walkovers.

Interesting. So it depends on Sveta beating Mary, Amelie not being beaten by Francesca or a Russian and Lindsay or Venus or Sveta not beating Justine.........

Because I think Amélie will don't reach semis, what happened if Linsday beats Justine in semis and wins the tournaments but beats a russian in final?

Lindsay would be no.1.
In that case it doesn't matter who she plays in the final. (as long as it's not a walkover )

Well, if Justine wins the tournament by beating Amelie, maybe Amelie will be number one but everybody will know who the real number one is... Also, if Justine wins, she will definitely be really close to number one in the Race to the Chase ranking (or maybe even number one?)

Anyway, I hope Amelie doesn't reach the final, because if she does and loses and still becomes number one, that will be the weirdest way to number one in history... Of course, if that's the case, Amelie would definitely have a shot at being number one for the shortest period of time, because this place is currently held by Venus with 11 weeks, and Amelie sure wouldn't stay so long at number one...

Well, everyone said that now they give points for Serena's actual ranking now, but off course, everything can change.

Justine will lose #1 in 2 weeks anyway, when her Leipzig points are coming off, cos she doen't plan to play anything instead of it, so far.

another number one topic. whoever gets to be the #1, it will be rightfully earned. no matter whether you like it or not.

If Amelie knows this, I think it's a safe bet to have Elena n the semifinals

Serena Williams
Vera Zvonareva
Ana Ivanovic


Petra Kvitova - Svetlana Kuznetsova - Li Na - Sloane Stephens - Madison Keys

Will Always Love Kim Clijsters and Elena Dementieva

As the system stands you are quite right. However I really hope that whomever becomes #1 has won the USO.

On second thoughts I'll leave off discussing this until we know what actually happens.

Also you can look at it this way - if both make the final - Amelie will have the no 1 position but Lindsay will still have the no 1 in the Race to the WTA Champs
