I dont think so. I can see either of them making #1 again, but I think the field is deeper now than in 2002 so it would be hard for them to get 1 AND 2 again.

I say no, not because they're not talented enough but it's just that they're injured a lot and these days you have to be 100% fit to become no.1.

I think if they really wanted to they could, if they would just put more time and effort in to it. They put down some good results even with their chronic injuries, so if they were fully healthy and put a side their off cort interests for a short time they could make it back into the top 5.

I don't think so. Having said that Martina has comeback and is fast approaching the Top10 at great speed, so anything can happen.

Venus can, she won Wimbledon, quite unexpectedly. Serena just needs to stop being injured, cos when she is on fire, she is on fire!

I think Vee has the better chance of being number 1. Its not like shes been in bad form since winning wimbledon she's just bein really injured. For serena it will be much harder

Much as I hate thinking it the answer has to be no.

There is more chance of Helen Lawson returning to the screen in a tean flick and winning the Oscar for her heartfelt scream as she is chased through the woods by a psycho killer in a mask that turns out to be her long dead mother. Played by Creep.

I think one of them can get to #1, as some of you has said, and I would like it to be Venus. But I seriously doubt both of them could be 1 and 2 at the same time again...but just in case, I voted unsure.

I'd like to imagine that in order to beat me a person would have to play almost perfect tennis. - Venus Williams

Barring injury, if both of them wanted it badly enough at the same time, yes.

In order for Venus & Serena to be ranked at the top they must play well (win tournaments) and play more frequently - smaller (Belgium) and bigger (Miami) tournaments. These things are possible if they are:

1. Physically fit & not injured
2. Have an efficient game plan & strategy
3. Improvement in techniques & execution (less unforced errors)
4. 100% dedication & focus to tennis

Otherwise, Venus & Serena may remain in the same positions that they are now.
