Why can't Anyone take the number one ranking from Lindsay?
I'm of course am a big fan of Lindsay but Lindsay isn't playing that great. She's still been consistent as usual but she's lost in 3 of 4 finals. She was very close to making it 4 for 4 against Jankovic. The number one has been for the taking for about 6 months now. Why hasn't anyone taken it?
Serena's chances are getting lower to take the number one before Roland Garros after her performance after the AO. Sharapova has been consistent but how will she play against Clijsters, Mauresmo, and Henin-Hardenne on clay when the number one ranking is on the line? Mauresmo has had 6 chances in 5 months for the number one ranking and she's folded under the pressure each time.
Sharapova has a chance now after Amelia Island but with her lost to Clijsters today she has to hope that Lindsay is inconsistent. Lindsay will have to lose before the SF of Amelia Island to lose number one now. If Sharapova would have won she would have put pressure on Lindsay win Amelia Island for her to keep number 1. Lindsay's chances for keeping number one for another month is high now. So who's going to step up and take the ranking from her before Roland Garros? Or will she actually keep it because noone will take it from her?
