Serena's ranking and Tier I's

How can a plyer who only plays 12 tournaments a year be ranked so high? Well, for one thing, she wins a lot, 5 out of the 12 tournaments she entered in the past 12 months. More to the points, she holds 4 of the 10 Tier I ttles. No one else has more than one.

S. Williams Rome
S. Williams Toronto
S. Williams TChamps

Hingis Toray
Hantuchova Indian Wells
Majoli Charleston
Henin Berlin
Davenport Zurich
Dokic Moscow

and Venus hardly plays them at all! Which really hurts her ranking, IMO.

The funny thing is, Serena could very well become #1 without even winning a grand slam! Wouldn't that be weird? If for example she reached the finals of Wimbledon, she could pass Venus, even with fewer tournaments!!!

And it would be impossi ble to explain to outsiders, but this is the very reason. Serena plays a lot of Tier I tournaments and does well there, Venus almost none.

Kim4ever, Hamburg is a tier 2 tournament, not a tier 1...

And also volcana, just a slight pretty petty correction LOL....

the masters or wta champs at end of year is not classified as a tier 1...there are really only 9 tier 1's on the tour as there are more points/money at the champs, but i spose i'll let you count it as one for these purposes hehe....

martinafan - You're totally right, but you have to count the TChamps as SOMETHING. And they obviously aren't a GS. THey really need to do something to make the Champs a bigger deal. It just gets lost now.

May I remind you, Kim has never won any TIER 1 tournaments before.

welcome kim4ever
ignore the net, he is one of the person who like to bash Kimmy,
when you rule you always get bashers, it's sad but true
Kimmy win a grand slam and a tier 1 soon and Serena will keep winning them too
tennis is nice

I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams

She did turn it on at the USO but ran in to Venus who had also turned it on.

Serena played on 1 grand slam since she gave her career a new(and very possitive) turn and indeed she met a red hot venus there, I have no doubt Serena will win a grand slam soon, she is too good not to
