Mauresmo's comments about world no.1 ranking

I just saw this article and thought i'd post it.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tennis/4774502.stm

I thought the way mauresmo talks about the world no, 1 ranking is kinda silly...

"Kim is not playing for a couple of weeks so I'll be the world number one soon anyway,"she said." This is not a hate thread against Mauresmo, I just think this comment sounds slightly misguided. I mean she's happy that she can regain the world no.1 by other people not competing and being injured.

I dont think its a healthy attitude to try and grab everything you can by not even having to win and beat the best players. I know other people have also risne to no.1 by others not playing but I know some have said how they would have liked to get to that ranking by winning a title or beating a major rival, rather than regaining it this way.

Anyway, feel better now I have said that, lol. its not meant to offend, just an opinion cos i think Mauresmo has been the best player this season!

I don't think she's happy that Kim can't play because of an injury. I think what she means is that the reporters make too much of her not becoming #1 this week, since she'll become #1 next week.

And besides, I don't agree that she will be #1 BECAUSE Kim is injured. Even if Kim would compete in IW, Amelie would still have a great chance to become #1. After all, she is the player who won the last slam and the last Masters, so it's not that weird that she's becoming #1 soon.

Ok, but that quote makes it sound as if she doesnt care about loosing the final which even if not true takes something away from Petrova's title.

I think it simply translates to "I can wait another week"

No need to fuss your feathers.

i dunno what it is, please dont see this as a negative post or an offending post becuase it isnt, i just cant put my finger on it.

I just dont see her as the the "woman to beat" and someone that younger players will want to play. If you asked an unranked player who they would rather play on the Main court at a slam, i think there would be about 5 or 6 names mentioned before they got to Mauresmo.

I think for the game they need somone more 'famous' (which i hate to say about Momo) as the top player. Or, if not, just make sure that everyone else is healthy and competing, which as it stands now just isnt happening.

With the likes of Davenport, Clijsters, Henin, Venus, Serena, Hingis, Pierce, Sharapova in the game, it just seems weird to me that she is top dog. Does anyone else agree? Or am i just sounding like a complete twat?

That's not true. She says she doesn't mind waiting another week to become #1. She says NOT that losing this final doesn't matter to her. Two different things.

Well i dont think that most players (or certainly the greats) would not mind loosing a final in any cicumstances.
