All I can say is that I don't feel she has earned the number 1 ranking at all this year. She is a great talent but she hasn't been the number 1 this year. I think the only 3 people that could be argued as no.1's for this year because of their consistency through long periods of time have been Kim 1st Lindsay 2nd and Justine 3rd. Maria hasn't done anything in months and the last tough tournament she won was Doha all the way back in February. She's made 3 slam semi's but Kim won the U.S. Open and it's Series, Lindsay made the finals of Wimbledon,Australia,and quarter's of 2 other slams and has won tournaments througout the year, Mary has made 2 slam finals and won a tier I, Venus won Wimbledon, Serena won the Australian, Justine dominated the clay season and won Roland Garros so really to me the top 6 players of the year have been Venus, Serena, Justine, Kim,Lindsay and Mary.
