What no choice for Anna K ????

If it's not Venus then she'll only have herself to blame.

Davenport according to moi

I have a feeling that it will be Kim, even if I dislike her. She is climbing up and up. There is no reason why her next year should not be better than the previous one.

if she plays better for the first half of the year, and bothers to play the indoor season I will be VERy surprised if it isn't Venus.

However, if Venus fails to play often, then I think Lindsay will end number 1 again.

In order of chances here are my list. This is really still a battle of three:<br />Lindsay/Venus/Martina

Lindsay- Since she is the current holder and proves to be in top two spot for five year ends now and proves to be really consistent, why bet against her?? Problems with the Williams would sligthly hurt her ranking.

Venus- A dominant player in Grass and hardcourt but will she be able to do it in full schedule???? specially in other surfaces? She really have the very good chance but this has been predicted since last year. But again, why bet against her?

Martina- Shes been there and she knows how to get there. She just lacks new techniques and new game variety. We dont what she have for us in 2002.

Capriati- I would still give her a chance since her comeback in 2001. But thats too tough to defend.

Kim & Serena & Jelena- If Serena started to play full schedule also, we dont know yet whats in store for her. Kim and Jelena still needs more confidence to beat back to back TOP players. It does'nt take overnight.

Monica Seles- Does she have the stamina???

Juju- maybe next year, she'll be a contender.

I'm a bit surprised Serena isn't being given much of a chance. Oh well,I guess her strong showing at the end of the year was just a flash in the pan. I can only say that assuming she plays in most of the tournaments she's entered, she'll very definitely be number one at the end of the year, surface be damned. Her only real competiton is her sister, but hey, if Jen got there without beating Venus, Serena should also do it pretty handily. Aside Serena, I'd have to say Venus has the best chance, again surface be damned, simply because, the best of the rest, Lindsay, can still not beat these two on a consistent basis. So the only way anybody else can end number one is if these two don't play enough once again. I know I'm not being exactly original here in stating this but hey, we can't always be original. Too much work involved.

A4: I tend to agree with you on this.

The fact that Venus hasn't been number one at some point already SEEMS a littl silly, if one doesn't take into account that she doesn't play a full schedule.<br />Just like the fact that Serena wasn't a top 8 (or top 4 for that matter) seed at the US Open, must have seemed laughable to people who didn't know better (heck, and to people who DO know better).

Personally i don't factor Serena in to the #1 equation quite yet, simply cause if Venus doesnt play enough to get it, than Serena certaintly doesn't!

However I sincerely hope they will both play more this year! Not too much that they get injured, but enough they can legitametly battle for #1!
