Question Who will end the year as Nº1?

Who will end the year as Nº1?
This year will be great, with the return of Henin & Clijsters, the Williams recover their level and Masha fighting for the Nº1, also, Lindsay, Amelie, Natsya, Sveta, Lena and Jennifer could be dangerous.

Lindsay. In the end would it be realistic for Sharapova to win the YEC Championship again if the number one was on the line. I don't think it is. Is it realistic for Serena to make it to the finals again? I think that's pretty realistic.
I'm going to give Serena a big chance to get to number one but because she doesn't play a lot she has to do 1 round better at the French Open and US Open than she did last year.
I think Lindsay is consistent enough that she might be able to hover at or around number one to get it back at the end of the year. She's always been consistent at the Cali tournis and indoors at the end of the year. If she plays the tournis that she did last year and stays consistent that would get her close. If she played some other tournis like Eastbourne and Philadelphia and did well there then that should be enough to finish at number one.

maria will be #1 if she isn't under a limited schedule rule due to her age.

i forgot about kimmy, yes she is definitely up there, but her last comments about the tendon in her wrist moving, and her needing an MRI are not encouraging, and I don't think she'll be playing a lot of tournies outside of the big ones for a while.

we also know Maria has to defend Wimbledon and YEC in her pts also so she probably has to win a slam this year to secure it.

Kim, unless Serena decides that she wants it, and focus on tennis more. If so, I belive that #1 spot is her's.

"I dream of people watching me holding up my third Wimbledon trophy... Most of all I dream of being a good person to all that are inspired by me I dream of having girls, women, boys, men being fond of not only what I have done on the tennis court, or on the big screen or what I design but I dream of what people think of me as a person.
I dream that people think of me as a giving person as a person that
loves life and is fun to be around." - Serena

I'd say its Lindsay, Kim and Maria in that order.

I feel that Kim will win a slam this year, and she is a demon on carpet, so there is no doubt that she has major points to gain there. She can gain a lot of points, even before Wimbledon rolls around.

As for the injury factor, she is coming off an injury, but with a managed schedule, she'll do fine.

On the other hand, it could be a factor for anyone of the top players. Maria could have a injury even before she hits the first ball at wimbledon, same goes for Lindsay.

Take care of your character. Reputation will sort itself.
