No way! Plenty of people who had success last year did worse than Venus!

People always seem to forget that Vee had a 19 match winning streak going into the French Open with two titles and a final where she gave Momo a walkover.

Not necessarily, the person ranked last in the WTA rankings (Lyndsay Reilly) has not played at all this year, so has had no losses.

And i said that it was relative to their careers, many of the players ranked in the 1000s are at their highest rankings so far, so would have had a good year so

I think Dokic. It seems like everything is a struggle for her lately. I hope she can get back on track b/c she has great talent that shouldn't be wasted.
