Well, who is now the n. 1 in your opinion?

maybe Serena?

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference

Even though I would love to see Venus and Serena numbers 1 & 2, Jennifer is the true #1. She may have lost today, but that means nothing. All of them lose at one point or another.

I have CDO. It's like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, except in alphabetical order like it should be.

This is my ranking ( just my opinion)

1- Serena William ( she did very good in this year ,definitely she has the ability to replace her sister Venus to capture the US Open Grand Slams title in this year if she still keeps playing like this in every tournament )
2- Jennifer Capriati ( despite her lose to Serena in this time , but she could challenge Martina Hingis , Kim Clijster )
3- Martina Hingis ( Except Serena , i think Hingis now can beat Jennifer , Venus or either Monica Seles . Yess of course she can beat Kim Clisjter and Justin Henin )
4-Lindsay Davenport
5- Venus William ( Sorry , but this is her sister's year
6- Monica Seles ( actually she always is the greatest player of all the time ..)
7- Kim Clisjter ( she could beat the rest of player behind her ranking )
8- Justin Henin
9- Mauresmo
10-Jelena Dokic

Jennifer Capriati!

I don't think it is even questionable, the match between Jennifer and Serena was so close and she is the only one to give her a real battle this days. So Serena might ne number two or whatever but Jennifer rules!

What Serena has to say about this...

Q. The ratings, who's the No. 1 player this week?

SERENA WILLIAMS: I think Jennifer will be No. 1 still. Unfortunately, I'm not up there. I haven't played enough tournaments. So you can't count it for week to week.

Kind a silly to me to keep having this same debate, every time a player gets a streak going, but I'll respond.

Who's #1 now? Jennifer. Rankings say so. Not for long, IMHO...but still there now.

Who's hot? Serena.

......... And Monica.

Jennifer is #1 in the rankings, therefore, she is the #1 player.

My current ranking would be;

1) Capriati - consistent and reliable especially in big events.
2) Hingis - playing often and beating some tope players.
3) Serena - top form but can't be considered with the best unless she plays them more often.
4) Seles - in great form but mentally weak. May well move up in the clay season.
5) Venus - unpredictable and sometimes messy, sometimes brilliant.
6) Clijsters - good signs on her return from injury esp. in Miami.
7) Mauresmo - played some excellent tennis this year but msiing many big tournaments - one to watch on clay.
8) Henin - Disappointing so far but still highly ranked.
9) Hantchukova - flashes of brilliance.
10) Dokic - injury has proven problematic but has shown some great form especially when she beat Seles - will be strong on clay if fit.

Impossible to rate Davenport, may find it tough to come back from arthroscopic surgery, I've been there and getting down to the balls and twisting the body weight through the ball isn't easy after surgery.

Jen Jen... she's won 3 Slams to Venus' 2 in the last 15 months. So, based on that, she deserves to be it.

Let me see, so JenCap is at the top of the rankings so I guess she's no.1.

Watching her play today only confirms that to me.

Oh and Serena's pretty good too .

1: Capriati - only because she is ranked #1 but think she cant defeat Venus or Serena.

2: Venus - eventhough nasdaq was a stinker.. she is still the best payer in the world right now.

3: Serena - Is clearly better than most players on tour, but gets injured too easily to maintain her position.

4: Lindsay Davenport - She is out but when she comes back will still be better than 98% of the women on tour.

5: Kim Clijsters - Between her and Monica, it was hard to chose but Monica cant beat Hingis, which, Clijsters can so I give Clijster the edge.

6: Martina Hingis - I doubt she will ever get back to #1

7: Monica Seles - That Hingis block is keeping her back

8: Mauresmo - Clay is coming up, but she will fade as usual

9: Hening - Like Dementieva 2nd year, she is stinking up the place

10: Dokic - She is really trying, hopefully she can at least live up to her seed.

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow
